"PINEVILLE — “One life will soon be past, only what is done for Christ will last.”

"The Rev. Silas W. Mullins Sr., 90, of Pineville, was called home to be with his heavenly Father on Monday, April 16, 2012 with his loving family by his side. His journey on Earth is complete, and now he is accepting his eternal reward.

"Born Dec. 18, 1921, in Crumpler, he was the son of the late Oliver and Pearlie Belcher Mullins.

"The Rev. Mullins was a true man of God. He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. His two great passions were his love for the Lord and for his family.

"Silas attended Northfork High School and then served in the U.S. Army. He was a veteran of World War II where he received a Purple Heart. After his service in the Army, he worked as a coal miner until his retirement.

"The Rev. Mullins was a minister for 64 years. He served the Pentecostal Church of God as district secretary/treasurer for six years, and then District Superintendent for six years. He was pastor of Twin Branch Pentecostal Church in Twin Branch, W.Va. for 18 years. After his retirement, he was an active and faithful member of the Rockview Pentecostal Tabernacle in Rockview. Until his declining health, Silas enjoyed preaching the gospel at various churches throughout his community.

"In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his youngest son, Terry Wayne Mullins on Feb. 12, 1972. He was also preceded in death by a brother, Curtis Simpson and two sisters, Gladys Church and Gertrude Sizemore.

"Those left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 66 years, Stella Tabor Mullins; his oldest son, Silas Mullins Jr. and his wife, Peggy, of Pineville; granddaughters, Ashley Smith and her husband, Gary, of Danese, and Kara Shupe and her husband, Greg, of Beckley; great-granddaughters, Allison Shupe and Grayson Smith; and a step-granddaughter, Ericka Blankenship and her husband, Robert, of Louisville, Ky. Silas is also survived by brothers, Wiley Bill, Donald and Harold Simpson; sisters, Heidi Sizemore and Leona Muncy; special caregiver, Wanda Farley; and several nieces and nephews.

"A celebration of Silas’ life will be 1 p.m., Thursday, April 19, 2012, at the Christian Fellowship Worship Center, Twin Falls Road, Pineville, with the Rev. Bill Goode, the Rev. Patty Post, the Rev. Raymond Bishop, the Rev. Paul Lusk and the Rev. Donald “Doc” Adkins officiating. Burial will follow in Blue Ridge Memorial Gardens, Beckley. ..."
