Nick was born to Nick Mullan, Sr. and Nora Mullan in Kodiak on Dec. 11, 1956.
Nick Jr. attended East Elementary School in Kodiak. He loved playing Little League baseball. Nick played junior varsity basketball for Kodiak High School. After graduating from high school, Nick went to heavy duty mechanic training in Washington for 2-3 years. He worked for the Department of Transportation for awhile after returning to Kodiak.
Nick Jr. went fishing on two or three fishing vessels. Later on Nick Jr. worked on repairing fishing nets for a number of different people. He loved to play bingo and was frequently found at the American Legion in downtown Kodiak. Nick Jr. was a practical joker and loved to make people laugh. He followed all the major sports games and stars throughout his life.
Nick Jr., was preceded in death by his mother Nora O. Mullan, sister Diana Stevenson and father Nick Mullan, Sr. on February 25, 2012.
Nick Jr. is survived by his sister Debra Mullan and husband Mike Welborn of Kodiak. He is survived by brother-in-law Larry Stevenson and nephews Leith, Larson and Landon of Oskalossa, Kan. He is also survived by his youngest sister Phyllis Kay Peger and husband Raymond Peger, and very dear to his heart was his two nieces Britanny M. Jackson (husband Jaremy) and Danielle M. Peger of Fairbanks, Alaska. We all used to play some “wicked” games of UNO when we visited Kodiak. And oh, the fishing stories.
A memorial remembrance potluck service for Nick Mullan Jr. is scheduled for Friday, February 21, 2014 at 6pm at the American Legion in Kodiak. The family would like to invite all who knew and loved “Uncle Nicky” to attend and give special “thank yous” to his friends and comrades who knew and helped Nick Jr. at the American Legion where he liked to “hang out.” RIP Bro.
