Gilbert D. Mullennix, 86, of Edison, died Saturday, September 3, 2016 at Woodside Village, Mt. Gilead, after a long illness.
Gilbert was born in Morrow County on June 15, 1930 to the late Homer and Dorothy (Beck) Mullennix. He married Helen R. Sherman on June 23, 1957 and she preceded him in death on August 9, 2004.

Gilead; his six grandchildren, Charles Goodman, Robert Goodman, Quincy Goodman, Jonathon (Amanda) Tresh, Audrea Tresh, and Justin Tresh; his five great-grandchildren, Trevor, Avril, Tyreece Tresh, Deeanna Cockrell, and Chandlor Burch; and numerous nieces and nephews.
