I remember having Mr. Mullen as the principal of Carl Cozier from the early 50's. My mother worked in the office from time to time, so I had more than a passing chat with him as a child. He was always very warm, gentle and down to your level.

Blessings to the family. We will all see him again one day and boy will have memories of the early days.

In late August of 1961 I reported to Carl Cozier Elementary School to begin a career in teaching.Roger met me at the front door of the schoolhouse..and thus began our relationship.And while
we only worked together in the same building for a few short years,I shall
always be indebted to this wonderful man for his guidance,his support and his friendship.

Roger Mullen was our principal at Carl Cozier elementary when I was a student 1953-57. Roger got the word out that kicking balls agains the East wall was "against the rules" since some windows had been damaged. Over confident in my soccer passing skills I broke the rule and broke a window. Mr Mullen never got mad over the infraction but he and my parents agreed that I would reinburse the school district $7.98 for the window. It took a while to pay back my parents but I learned a life lesson thanks to Mr. Mullen. His example as a parent and husband is remarkable and thus his children and grandchildren are his legacy. I was fortunate to have known Roger and Jean.

Dear Mullen Family,
Bob and I were sorry to hear about your Dad's passing. Praise the Lord he is with Him. We appreciated your Dad and Mother as neighbors for many years in the Geneva Area. May the Lord be your comfort and strength in the coming days.

Mr. Mullen was an amazing man, and the first elementary principal I had the pleasure of working with when I began teaching strings at Birchwood Elementary four decades ago. As I recall, the school was bursting at the seams, and our music class was assigned to use the boy's locker room, just off the gym, as our instructional area. The deafening sound generated by the kids and their instruments in that highly resonant area was akin to having the WSO perform in a large bathtub. So, Roger Mullen came to the rescue, and the two of us spent a weekend gluing egg carton squares onto the walls and ceiling to absorb the sound, similar to the radio studio on "Hee Haw." Roger was always there to help us teachers and was a big advocate of building the self esteem of his students through having them pursue goals at which he knew they could succeed. Not too many years ago, I drove by Mr. Mullen’s house and saw him splitting wood for his fireplace; he kept himself in good physical shape. Even more recently, I was able to visit with him at Birchwood when the school was celebrating a special anniversary. Roger Mullen left a wonderful legacy that will live on in the hearts of all who had the honor and the pleasure of knowing him.

Roger Mullen was my teacher at Sunnyland. Great guy!

One favorite memory is the excitement of riding in his snazzy Model A coupe up into the hills with some other guys to get the classroom tree for the holidays. Riding back to town in the rumble seat with that tree was no picnic on a cold Whatcom County December day!
