He retired from the United States Postal Service where he was a Mail Carrier for many years, a member of New Hope Baptist Church, a lifelong member of the Alexandria Lion’s Club, an Army Veteran, and a collector of anything antique.

In his 84 years he taught us many lessons like; If you can’t say it to their face don’t say it at all. How to dig worms, or fish with your hands. One flashlight with batteries is all you need. Don’t drink, smoke, or cuss in front of ladies. You can always change your mind. How to shoot a gun, fill a sinkhole, plant a garden, get a tractor out of a pond, and you can go ANYWHERE in a 4 wheel drive. How to toolbox surf, always take care of widows, kids, and animals. Life ain’t fair.

Jim is preceded in death by his parents; Drury Malburn and Pauline Adamson Mullinax, a brother; Harry, and one daughter, Suzane.

He leaves behind a smiling, but sad family that includes his wife of 62 years; Daris Mullinax, three daughters; Ria (Ricky) Baker, Beki (John Scott) Morgan, Stacey (Dewayne) Martin.
