MULLAN, LAWRENCE A. -  Larry Mullan, 78, passed away Sunday, January 11, 2009.   Larry was a United States Marine Corps sniper during the Korean War and later went on to teach at Bishop Moore High School in Orlando for more than two decades.  An avid history buff, Larry also was a rabid New York Yankees fan, having pitched for them before he enlisted in the Marines.  Larry and his wife of 46 years, Anne, moved to New Smyrna Beach nearly 20 years ago.  Larry is also survived by his daughter, Mariann and her husband, Charley, of New Smyrna Beach.  He has four grandchildren: Christopher, Alex, Chas and Janna.  He also has two brothers Dick (Horty) and Philip and a sister Betsy, all of whom live in New York.  Larry took pride in being a member of the VFW and the Korean War Veteran’s Association.   He loved to visit with his friends, go to Clancy’s and will miss being a part of that great crew of folks. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Hospice of Volusia/Flagler  or  3800 Woodbriar Trail    Port Orange, FL 32129. 11:00 AM at Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church 4000 South Atlantic Avenue New Smyrna Beach, FL 32169 on January 19, 2009 (map/driving directions)

    To the Family of Mr. Mullan:
    I was a student of Mr. Mullan at Bishop Moore from 1964-1968. I remember him as a teacher unusually gifted in communicating and connecting with his students. His dry wit and unorthodox style, however, could not mask his love of the literature he taught or his passion for teaching. I do not remember many of my high school teachers, but I remember Larry Mullan.

    Although I did not fully appreciate it then, today more than ever I understand the debt all Americans owe to men like him who served our nation in its "forgotten war" in Korea. I know he sacrificed more than most.

    Please acept my condolences on his passing and may God rest his kind soul.
