George W. Mulling, 93, of Marietta died Sunday, July 20, 2014. Entombment Services will be held 2:00 p.m., Wednesday at Cheatham Hill Mausoleum Chapel with Dr. Sam Matthews Officiating. Mr. Mulling grew up in Baxley, GA as a descendant of land-grant pioneer Benjamin Leggett of Appling County who owned over 2000 acres. Mulling still owned a portion of the original tract bordering the Altamaha River and had deeds from the first land grant to the present. His father, Claude Mulling [deceased], planted the first pine tree forest in the area on that land and was a leader in early land conservation farm practices. He has been a resident of Marietta since 1950. He was a lifelong member of the United Methodist Church where he served on the board of Marietta First Methodist and was a former president many times of the Fellowship Sunday School class. Mr. Mulling was a lifelong advocate of vocational technical education, George served in many facets of educational administration. He was profoundly interested in vocational education and felt that each student should be prepared to go into the field of work, especially if the student did not plan to attend college.
