Toby Lynn Mullis

Toby Lynn Mullis, 68, passed away on Friday, March 22, 2024.  A native of Alamance County, he was the son of the late Charlie Hubert and Louise Baker Mullis and was married for 48 years to the love of his life, Deborah "Debbie" Mann Mullis, who survives.   

Toby was a chemical specialist at Lindley Laboratories, where he proudly worked for 16 years, later transitioning to Labcorp as a material control specialist, and eventually fulfilling the role of transportation coordinator at The Village of Brookwood.  Toby was an outgoing, fun-loving, and a true people person.  His vibrant personality touched the lives of many. Beyond his professional endeavors, he found joy in various hobbies such as being an avid Duke fan, hunting, fishing, working out, riding his motorcycle, watching movies, and taking trips to the beach with his beloved family.

Among Toby's proudest accomplishments was his unwavering faith and dedication to serving the Lord. He was instrumental in leading hundreds of individuals to the Lord through his many years as a Sunday School teacher and various roles within the church.  Toby went on numerous mission trips to destinations including Canada, Jamaica, and South Dakota and was a faithful member of Lamb's Chapel.  

Toby is survived by his loving wife, Deborah "Debbie" Mann Mullis; daughters Sonya Mullis Fields and husband, Dennis and Ashley Mullis Cantrell and husband, Randall; granddaughters Vanessa Cantrell and Reagan Fields; a sister Lillie "Toot" Everette of Garner, NC as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents Charlie Hubert Mullis and Louis Baker Mullis and siblings Elbert "Buddy" Mullis and Marion Mullis Ross.
