Thomas E. Mull, 69, of Shamokin Dam, was suddenly carried on angels' wings Thursday, March 8, 2018, after a two year battle with lung cancer. His passing was at Geisinger Medical Center, Danville.
He was born July 26, 1948, in Sunbury, a son of the late Edgar K. Mull Jr. and Betty I. (Straub) Mull.
On Aug. 9, 1969, he married the former Carolyn "Sue" Boonie, who survives.
Tom was a 1966 graduate of Middleburg High School, and later served in the US Army. He was employed in the parts department at several area auto dealerships. Tom retired from the Selinsgrove School District. He was a member of St. Paul's "Erdley's" Lutheran Church, Middleburg, where he had served as council president. He was also a member of the Shamokin Dam fire company, the Moose No. 1173, Selinsgrove, the Snyder County Chapter PA Association of School retirees, and a former member of the Kreamer volunteer fire company. Tom had served as a coach of the Kreamer Blue Jays softball team. He enjoyed Nascar racing, and going to the beach with his family.
Tom will be remembered for his quick wit and dry sense of humor, and his willingness to lend a helping hand.
Surviving, in addition to his wife of 48 years, are one daughter and son-in-law, Angela Sue and Leon Catanzariti Jr. of Lumberton, N.J.; three grandchildren, who were the joy of his life, Tyler Thomas, Zachary William, and Gianna Dana Catanzariti; one brother, Steve Mull of Selinsgrove; three sisters and brothers-in-law, Linda and Mike Nevin of Herndon, Susan and Clifford Fegley of Middleburg, and Cathy and Greg Hafer of Winfield; one half-brother, Scott Mull and his wife Celina of Milton; and one half-sister, Robin Mull of Middleburg; and his faithful furry friend, Coco.
