Mervyn Laurier Mcmullin

November 16, 1931 - December 25, 2015


It is with great sadness the family of Mervyn Laurier McMullin announce his passing on December 25, 2015 at Kelowna General Hospital.  Merv's daughter, son and 2 grandsons were at his side when he peacefully left us.


Born in Nelson, BC on November 16, 1931 Merv attended Procter School and worked at a number of locations in his life.  He spent the majority of his career in the oil business as a sales agent starting with the BA Oil Co in Nakusp in '61, moved to Nelson with BA Oil in '63, then switched to Texaco Canada in '69 – '81.  He drove city bus for the City of Nelson '81-'83 before moving to Prince George as a sales agent with Shell Canada from '84-'87.  He moved to Burnaby to retire but enjoyed driving so he drove school bus from '87-'90 and then in Kelowna from '91-'94.  He tried his hand at retiring again but loved to go to work so he became a security guard from '05-'10.   


He loved the game of hockey – watching it, curling and football was his favorite pastime and he always enjoyed a good tune of old time country and western music.  Merv’s quick wit, many jokes and fantastic memory for a good story of days past will be dearly missed by everyone who knew him.    He had been a Mason of the Nelson Masonic Lodge, board member of the Nelson City Police and received a lot of comfort from his faith in God later in his life.


He is survived by his daughter Cindy McLaren and son Laurie “Chuck” McMullin; grandchildren Jordan (Laura), Morgan and Megan McLaren, Amanda, Michael and Miranda McMullin; great grandchildren Ayla McMullin and Colton McLaren; sister Josephine Mathieu (George), sister in law Diana McMullin, his wife Elma Neufeld and many nieces and nephews.  He is predeceased by his mother and father Marie and Joseph McMullin, brothers Gilbert and Graham, sisters Alma J. McMullin and Frances Colman.


Cremation has taken place and a memorial service with interment at the Nelson Cemetery will be announced at later date.  Condolences can be sent to the Thompson Funeral Home. 


Rest Peacefully Dad, Grandpa – we will always love and miss you – forever in our hearts and never forgotten.
