Jimmy Lyle Mullins, Jr., 42, passed away on September 1, 2022. His death was not unexpected, but was a tremendous loss to the ones he loved nonetheless. Despite complicated relationships that peppered his life, he was deeply loved as a son and a brother.
Jimmy was born in Alexandria, Virginia to Jimmy Lyle Mullins, and the late Jane Pearl “Dannette” Gosnell Mullins. In addition to his mother, he is preceded in death by his wife, Brittany Mullins; his sister Angel Mullins; a niece, Kayla Ferraro; and nephews, Matthew and Trey Ennis.
Jimmy was a smart man with many talents and interests, and he often put those to use in several different job paths as he looked for the perfect fit. Tragically, his life was one full of battled demons, but the real Jimmy was kindhearted, loved animals and loved his family.
The Jimmy that addiction and mental illness plagued was the one we choose to let go of in his death. Those of us who loved him will remember his laughter, his generosity and his concern for those around him. We’ll cling to his love for animals and his nieces and nephews, as well as his desire to make a positive impact with his life somehow. In his death, we rejoice in the Peace he now has, and hope that those he meant something to find that Peace as well.
Jimmy is survived by his father, Jimmy Lyle Mullins, Sr. (Susan); fiancé, Heather Reed; sisters, Lori Ennis (John) and Heather Ali (Shan); step sisters, Kristin Schratt and Brittany Williamson (Cliff); nephews, Jacob Ferraro, Luke Ennis, and Camden Ali, as well as several friends and extended family members.
He will be missed.
“Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke and put it on you, and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in spirit; and you will find rest.” Matthew 11:28-29
