Randy “Boot” Mullins, 65, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday January 29, 2024, peacefully at his home.
Randy was born November 16, 1958 in Norton, VA to Curtis and Shirley Mullins. He was raised in Pound, VA and attended Pound High School where played football, golf and baseball. It was there that he met the love of his life Tammy Mullins, whom he married in 1983. During their 41 years of marriage they were blessed with a beautiful daughter Kirsten Mullins and four grandchildren Alessandra, Erik, Anastasia and Randy “Lukas-James”.
Boot worked in the coal industry for over 40 years in many capacities, from a heavy equipment operator to a mine manager. He was an avid reader, especially history. Hunting for arrowheads and other artifacts were a passion of his. He was never ending with his knowledge and abilities- whether it was building a closet, bandaging a boo boo, or knowing every location on a map or obscure historical fact. The only thing to constantly elude him was the capability to hit one button at a time on his phone or remote.
However his greatest love was his family. He loved going to concerts with Tammy, riding his corvette with Alli while blasting oldies rock music with the top down, fishing with Ana on the boat or riverbank, he loved golfing behind their home with Kirsten. They had an ongoing competition to see who could hit the most ducks. He loved watching his girls play sports and supported them in all their endeavors. He also loved his grandson and looked forward to all the things he was going to teach him. Traveling together, watching scary movies, fine dining, and going on ghost tours throughout the country were some of his favorite activities. He was always ready for the next adventure.
Boot was preceded in death by his parents Curtis and Shirley Mullins; his in-laws Goldie and Richard Mullins; and his grandson Erik Winfree.
He is survived by his wife Tammy Mullins-Danville, WV; his daughter Kirsten Winfree-Charleston, WV; his grandchildren Alessandra Mullins, Anastasie Winfree and Randy “Lukas James”; his brother and sister-in-law Donnie and Janie Mullins-Wise, VA; his nephews David and Brad Mullins; and a host of loved ones.
Memorial services will be conducted at 6:00 p.m. Friday February 9, 2024 in the Baker Funeral Home Chapel with Reverend Randy Carter officiating. The family will receive friends from 5:00 p.m. until time of services.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that donation be made to the American Heart Association.
