Richard Dion Mullins

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Richard Dion Mullins. Richard left us on February 18, 2023, in Seattle, for his eternal home, surrounded by his family and enormous love. His immeasurable courage in the face of illness was admirable.

Richard was born on August 3, 1974, in University Place, Washington. He was loved and adored by all who knew him, bringing excitement and delight wherever he went. He was a determined and hard-working man. He spent his younger years as an avid fisherman in the Alaska vicinity, specifically on the Bering Sea. After returning home, he joined the Laborer’s Union. 

He had such skill for his beloved hobby of vintage auto restoration. His keen eye for detail breathed new life into old cars. He rebuilt his truck and boat- a major restoration, with the support of Jim. They created what Richard called “a masterpiece!”

He loved to  create memories with his family. In his spare time, Richard loved to fish in the Cedar River, always taking the girls with a picnic lunch. He enjoyed cooking and barbecuing for friends and family. Richard also had a love for rock music. He always attended the local street fairs, specifically Issaquah Salmon Days and frequented Tukwila Family Fun Center with his daughters. 

Cherishing Richard’s memory are the joys of his life, his three daughters:  Chloe Mullins, Bella Responte and Olivia Mullins. He is also survived by his beloved mother; Nora Ann Mullins, brothers; Raymond Mullins, Clyde Garza, John Garza and sister Sally Garza, several aunts and uncles in the greater Seattle area, and many wonderful nieces, nephews and cousins. Richard was predeceased by his father, Ramon Garza, Jr.

Although our hearts are truly broken and life will never be lived the same, Richard will forever dwell in our hearts. 

Carry on Down the Road Richard…

"He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the order of things have passed away!" - Revelations 21:4


Richard is loved and will be missed. We will see him again!
