On the heels of losing the 2013 Super Bowl, the San Francisco 49ers have now lost one of their most loyal and faithful fans. Lloyd “Moon” Earl Mullins passed away unexpectedly on Feb. 8, 2013, at the young age of 61, at home in Martinez, Calif., due to a case of pneumonia.
He is survived by his two children, Jonathan Hooten and Erin Prosser (David), who he was extremely proud of. He leaves behind his beloved mother, Misako Duhame; brother, David Mullins (Maryann); two sisters, Valarie Mullins-Spessard and Leona Morley (Tim); nieces, Alayna, Katie and Amber; and nephews John, Benjamin, and Daniel; grandchildren, Logan, William, Ronin, and Kaya; and great-grandchild, Matthew.
His grandchildren were very special and he would brag about them to all who would listen. He is preceded in death by his father, Lloyd “Leo” Mullins, and brother Thomas “Tony” Mullins.
Lloyd was born on Nov. 4, 1951, in Sapporo, Japan. A graduate of the Napa High Class of 1969, Lloyd made Napa his home for many years, before relocating to Martinez.
He will be missed by extended family as well as co-workers and friends from Mare Island Naval Shipyard (1974-1996), and Camp Parks (1996-2008). Lloyd was recently working part time for Walmart in Martinez.
Lloyd had countless lifelong friends. He enjoyed his 49ers, a good scotch, going to the casino, Disneyland, cooking and in recent years, he developed an incredible passion for baking bread. His heart and mind were always open, and Lloyd touched many with his easy going personality, generosity, incredible quick wit, charming good looks, intelligence and jaw-dropping sense of humor.
He knew when to take life seriously and when to have fun. He will be deeply missed and never forgotten by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. His spirit will live on through our shared stories and laughter.
A celebration of life has been scheduled for Friday, Feb. 15, 2013, at 1 p.m. at Tulocay Cemetery, 411 Coombsville Road in Napa, with a reception to follow.
