He lived in Cottage Grove his entire life. He married Barbara M. Thies in August 1969. Bob began his career working at the local Weyerhaeuser mill. He then went on to purchase his own truck and from there his company grew to become a successful business. Bob was the proud owner of Bob Mullins Trucking and two rock quarries in the area.

Bob is survived by two daughters, Melissa Mullins, Megan Millard, her spouse Adam and their three children, Audrey, Natalie and Mavrick; two brothers, Don Mullins, Bill Mullins and his wife Linda.
