Evangelist Hardee Evans McMullen, 88 of Valdosta, passed away on Monday, March 11, 2019 after a short illness. He passed away at his home surrounded by his loving wife and family. He was born to the late Joe & Mae Wisenbaker McMullen here in Valdosta and raised on the original home place where he was born. He was married to the love of his life, Kathryn Lenora Pennisi of Gainesville, FL for 66 years.
