Craig Gillespie Mullen, our beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend passed away peacefully on November 3, 2021, surrounded by his family.

Craig was born March 3, 1959 in Murray, UT to William Joseph and Betty Jane Mullen, the fifth of eight children. He married his sweetheart, Deann Stowe, in the Salt Lake Temple on April 29, 1983. He is survived by his wife and three children, Bryce, Rochelle (Kameron) Kellett, and Mickelle (Travis) Anderson, and 6 grandchildren that he adored.

Craig loved his Savior. He devoted himself to serving Him by helping whenever he saw a need and through various callings in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served as a bishop, a high counselor, in a bishopric of a Young Single Adult ward, but he especially enjoyed working with the youth & primary children. He selflessly gave acts of service, many of which his family are only now becoming aware.

He worked at GSL Electric for more than 39 years. He was known for his integrity and strong work ethic. Craig served on the Board of Directors for 26 years. During his career, he worked on over 500 projects as an Electrician, General Superintendent, and most recently a Project Manager. His work covered a range of commercial and industrial jobs such as water treatment plants, gold mines, hotels, and LDS temples. Some of his most memorable work included the International Broadcast Center for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, as well as the Joe Quinney Winter Sports Center.

His siblings remember him for being a good example. He is proceeded in death by his parents, and brothers Gill and Carl, and survived by Linda, Patty, Laura, Clyde, and Julee.

His grandchildren will remember him as the Slurpee deliverer, bath time entertainer, craft director, swing pusher, and patient passenger while they “drove” his truck.

Craig enjoyed being outside, working in his yard, taking trips with his family, seeing new places, and spending time with his sweetheart. His wife and children will always feel blessed for having his strength and unconditional love. He will be missed by all who knew him.
