Beloved Anchorage resident John Lee Mullins died July 26, 2010, at the age of 65. He succumbed after a long battle with cancer at the home of his sister and brother-in-law, Jerry and Sherrie Kincaid of Anchorage.

A service celebrating John's' life will be held at 6 p.m. Friday at the Kincaid family residence, 7540 Our Own Lane. All family and friends are welcome.

John was born Nov. 25, 1944, in Denver, Colo., to Earnest Lee and Ardeen Mullins.

The Mullins family moved to Cohoe, on the Kenai Peninsula, where they homesteaded through the 1950s. They moved to Chugiak in 1960. John attended East High School and joined the military in 1964.

John loved NASCAR, classic cars, drag racing and fishing, and was a collector of many things.

"John's unconditional love and appreciation of life will always be with us," his family said.

John is survived by his three children, Tammy Stewart, Shawn Lee and Fredrick Earnest Mullins; sister, Sherrie and her husband Jerry; and his three nephews, R.J., Joshua and Jake; as well as many lifelong friends.
