Merlin Royal Mullin passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Friday, May 31, 2024 at the Albert House. Born in Cassilis, NB he was the son of the late Royal and Martha (Hill) Mullin.

He will be missed and remembered by his loving wife of 66 years Carol Mullin, daughters: Sue, Lisa (Jeffrey) MacLeod, Tanya (George) Warman, sons: Chris (Rita), Ivan (Phyllis), his brother Bill (Marilyn), sister and brothers-in-law Marion Mullin, Joyce (Bob) Fiset and Vincent Burgess. He will also be remembered and missed by his grandchildren: Stephanie, Brittany (Brad), Samantha (Trevor), Alicia, Justin, Jessica, Mira, James, Linda (Colby), Curtis (Diane), great-grandchildren: Brandon, Sadie Jade, Braden, Sadie, Maddison, Jacob, Ethan, Sophia and his many nieces and nephews.

Aside from his parents, Merlin was predeceased by his sisters: Anne, Pauline, Lynn and his brothers Don and Eldon.

Woodworking was Merlin's passion, although there wasn't anything he couldn't do or fix.  From cars to household issues to special projects, he was always thinking creatively.  He designed and crafted numerous beautiful wooden candy dishes and lamps on his lathe and if you needed anything to complete your own project, it could be found in his workshop.  He loved nature and all animals and over the years, they had many cats, dogs, birds; he even rescued a wild turtle and crow!  His kindness had no boundaries.

Oil painting was another passion in which he exceled.  He loved painting landscapes and many of his family and friends proudly display his art work in their homes. Helping people was second nature to Merlin.  Without a second thought, he would offer his time, money, talent, muscle, opinion - literally the shirt off his back if someone needed it.  He will be greatly missed not only by family and friends, but also by many strangers who may not even have known his name.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff and volunteers of the 3600 Floor at The Moncton Hospital and the Albert House for the thoughtfulness and care given to him during his stay, it was deeply appreciated.
