Ken “Kenny” Mullen was born and raised in Oklahoma on February
11, 1948, but had also lived in Canada and Texas as he chased the American
dream. Ken passed away on November 28, 2015 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Most of
his career was spent in sales, with a few breaks here and there to run
his own businesses. It was with great reluctance and sadness when he retired
from his position as Vice President, OEM Product Group, Crane Carrier
Company in 2014 because he was passionate about his work and had a very
strong work ethic. Ken was not a man to sit around and do nothing. In
his free time, he kept himself busy with his hobbies, which included anything
and everything DIY, a love of buying and restoring Land Cruisers, and
playing the guitar, with a round of golf thrown in from time to time.
He cherished his family, friends, co-workers and last but not least, his
pets! He is already missed so greatly by his family and asked that we
honor his life with laughter, music and a celebration of a life well lived!
So here’s to a life well lived, we all love you!
Ken is survived by his loving wife Janet "Janni" Mullen; daughter
Melissa Palmer and husband Craig; son Kenneth Wayne Mullen II and wife
Anja; grandchildren Kierstin Gates, Jonathan Liston and Jacob Palmer;
great grandson Tyler Gates along with other loving family and friends.
Mr. Mullen is preceded in death by his parents Jimmie and Myra Mullen and
his brother James Mullen.
