Kevin Edson Mullen died Dec. 11 at his home in Rehoboth Beach, Del., according to friends. He was 53 and died of a heart attack.
Mullen was born in Alexandria, Va., on April 26, 1964 and lived most of his life in the D.C. area. In the last five years, Mullen spent as much time as possible in Rehoboth Beach, Del., where he co-owned a home with Claudia Davis, a friend for nearly 30 years. Davis said Mullen would have lived full-time in Rehoboth if he could have. Mullen was gay.
He worked for about 17 years as general manager of the Carriage House Condominiums and worked most of his life in property management. He was of the Episcopal faith.
His friend Curtis Olson remembered Mullen fondly.
“He liked the beach, Kevin liked people,” Olson said. “He liked hanging out at Trio on 17th Street. He was always giving. He’d give anyone the shirt off his back. He was a friend you could really count on.”
In addition to Davis, Mullen is survived by a niece, Ruthann Hewitt Murakami and nephews Gregory Hewitt, Jr. “Chip,” Brandon Hewitt and Joseph Mullen “JT.” He had many friends, Olson said.
A service where friends will be received is slated for Saturday, April 28 at 11 a.m. at Mount Comfort Cemetery (6600 South Kings Highway) in Alexandria, Va.
