Ronald C. “Ronnie” Mullen, passed away at the Lahey Clinic, after a brief illness, early Wednesday morning January  24th.  The beloved husband of Laurie Lou (Higgins) Mullen, he was eighty years of age.

Born in Woburn , Ronnie was one of ten children born into the family of the late John J. and Mary (Connolly) Mullen. Ronald was the dear brother of Sally Lambert, her husband Larry of Methuen and the late John, Thomas, Robert, Daniel, Richard, Mary Pica, her husband Frank, Margaret Haigh, her husband Robert, and Carol Mullen. He is also survived by his sister in law Mary Mullen and many loving nieces and nephews.  

Living in the “newlands section of the city” Ronnie started school at the Wyman, attended Woburn High School, and subsequently attained his GED.

He was later introduced by friends to Laurie Lou Higgins from the South End.  Well, that was the beginning of a relationship that spanned over fifty-seven years, side by side!  They first began their married life in Woburn for several years , later moving to Methuen, where they have made their home for over fifty years.

Ronnie worked over the years at Office Depot where he retired from in 2009.  He was truly never one to sit still before retirement so, needless to say he was quite active after he retired.

Ronnie and Laurie spent a lot of wonderful times at Hampton Beach. They would always visit and avail themselves to help in any capacity as Ronnie’s siblings had their different family venues there.  They all enjoyed their times together, both in season and not in season!

Ronnie and Laurie spent fifty-seven wonderful years together.  Ronnie was truly a good, good man.  He had a dry sense of humor, never had a bad word to say about anyone, and was always the first person to lend a helping hand.  They were very generous and even though they didn’t have children of their own, they shared a tremendous love amongst all their sisters, brothers, nieces, and nephews throughout the years.
