October 24, 1936 — December 26, 2022

Richard H. Mullen of Stone Ridge died peacefully with his family by his side on December 26, 2022 at the age of 86 after a brief illness. Richard was born on October 24, 1936 in Kingston, NY to the late Harold and Fannie (Schoonmaker) Mullen.  

After graduating from Saugerties High School, Richard honorably served his country for four years in the United States Marine Corp ranking as Corporal. A longtime resident of the local area, Richard also lived in Texas and Wisconsin before moving to Stone Ridge. He enjoyed playing golf, watching sports, traveling with Shirley by his side, and staying active with small construction and masonry projects after his retirement. Richard was a hardworking man with a kind, giving spirit, often thinking of others needs before his own. A talented mason by trade, over the years he owned or worked for successful construction businesses in New York and Texas before retiring as head foreman with Rasch Construction in Wisconsin. He was past president of the Marbletown Seniors, a member of the Kingston #10 Masonic Lodge, and a member of the Rondout Valley Lions Club. Richard was an active member of the Rondout Valley United Methodist Church.
