Donald Mulhern

November 14, 1927 — October 18, 2015

Donald Joseph Mulhern, 87, died suddenly at church on Sunday, October 18, 2015, of a coronary occlusion with immediate cardiac arrest. This followed a wonderful birthday celebration the evening before at the Alpine Country Club for four members of Holy Cross Anglican Church. Included in those members were Donald and Father Eugene Myrick, his longtime friend and companion. Many family members and friends from afar attended.

Mr. Mulhern, a master's graduate of The University of Texas, El Paso, was the retired assistant superintendent of the El Paso Public School System. He was elected to an honorary life membership in the Texas Association of School Business Officials. He loved Alpine and its environment and had lived in Alpine for nearly twenty years. Don, along with Father Myrick, were named Citizens of The Year in 2002 under the auspices of the Alpine Chamber of Commerce. Mr. Mulhern was also past president of the Alpine Rotary Club.

Donald was well known and loved in Alpine as a gentleman of strong faith, kindness, good humor, charming wit, and impeccable manners. No one ever said an ill word about him.

Mr. Mulhern was a United States Army Korean War combat veteran.

Donald Joseph Mulhern, born in Fort Davis, Texas on November 14, 1927 was the son of Joseph and Nellie Thomas Mulhern of El Paso, Texas, both deceased. His sister Patsy Burns of Roswell, New Mexico, deceased.

Mr. Mulhern is survived by Father Eugene Myrick of Alpine, a brother Tom Mulhern previously of Alpine, sister Nellie Marston, of El Paso, and many nieces and nephews.

The memorial service will be at 1:00 p.m., Friday, October 23, 2015 at Holy Cross Anglican Church.
