 Passing of Hank Mullin (1931-2015)

Long time NAMBA District 7 member, Colonel Henry A. Mullin passed away on August 12, 2015.

Hank was an active member of the New Mexico/Texas model boating community for several decades. He served as District Director and as an assistant contest director for the 2003 NAMBA Nationals. As a racer, Hank earned many district championships in the OPC Tunnel classes.

As a mechanical engineer at Sandia Laboratories, Hank was meticulous as could be. His engines performed flawlessly and he was always working to perfect new ideas. His boats were rarely outperformed. In his last years of racing, Hank recognized that his boats were getting faster and his driving ability was starting to diminish. Having known Dale Roberts for many years, he pushed Dale to get back into boating by having him drive his various boats for him. Dale went on to collect many championships racing Hank’s boats.

As District Director, Hank and his wife Almira were an integral part in the planning and eventual success of the 2003 NAMBA Nationals. Hank was a Director that was able to utilize his resources and made everyone feel as if they were a vital piece to the greater success of the group as a whole.

Hank is also greatly appreciated for his 43 years of service to our country. His final 31 years of his service were as a pilot with the New Mexico Air National Guard. Hank’s quest for speed was often associated with his many years of flying fighter aircraft.

Hank is survived by his wife, Almira. Almira’s huge smile and kind heart were always a welcome sight at boating events. She is an absolutely sweetheart and loved by all. Our thoughts and prayers are with her and the rest of Hank's family. Godspeed to our dear friend. May you rest in Peace.
