He was also employed as a police officer in Geneva, Ohio, at the same time he was teaching school.

He was a member of the Elks in Ohio and in Meadville, and in the past he was an avid golfer, and enjoyed scuba diving and Lake Erie boating. His children and grandchildren meant the world to him. He was a very devoted and loving grandfather who avidly supported and attended many of their extra-curricular activities that each were involved in.

He was a forever fan of the Cleveland Browns and Indians, and in his spare time, thoroughly enjoyed discussing past and present games with his friends.

In addition to his wife, Patricia Mullen, he is survived by two daughters, Edith Linz and her husband, Edward Linz III, of Conneautville and Stacy Peterman-Getz of Conneautville; five grandchildren, Katelyn Linz, Michael Linz, Mandi Linz, Derek Peterman and Maxwell Getz; a brother, Edward Mullen and his wife, Kitty, of Little Elm, Texas, a sister-in-law, Diane Mullen of Muskegon, Mich., and nieces and nephews, Melissa Mullen Reed, Krista Mullen, David Mullen and Mandy Wright; and his mother-in-law, Edith Seward of Conneautville.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother, Kenneth Mullen.
