G. Michael Mull, Jr. left this world in a tragic accident on August 16, 2013. He was a loving husband, father, and the greatest of friends. He was "THE" man. Mike made an impact on so many lives. His humor was infectious and he had a strong resolve to always do the right thing. Mike served his country for 12 years in the Arizona National Guard, serving 3 tours of duty, two of which were in Iraq. Mike was the recipient of the Bronze Star for his outstanding dedication to duty and service as squad leader in HHB 1/180 FA FWD during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Mike loved to ride his motorcycle and took extreme joy and pleasure in it. He also loved to sing karaoke and many will remember his stellar renditions of Ol' Red. Most of all, Mike cherished his family time with his wife, Sarah Beth and son, Brent. Mike is survived by his wife, Sarah Beth Mull, and their vivacious three year-old little boy, Brent Alexander Mull. He is also survived by George and Jeanie Mull (father and mother), Sara Edens (mother), Dan Mull (brother) and wife Melanie and their children Dusty and Ashleigh, Mark Mull (brother) and his wife Lucy and their son Mark Edward, Jr., and Barney Edens (brother) and wife Brandi and their children Kip, Chance, Liam, and Alexander. He is also survived by Elie Rogers (aunt), Sandy and Jay Murphy (aunt and uncle), Bea and Jimmy Olsen (aunt and uncle), Grandma Bear and her sister Eileen Wallace (great aunt). He will be missed by many and is loved by all.
