Aidan James Mullins

Born in Newark, he was the son of the Michael and Sarah (Scavia) Mullins.

Aidan was a second-grade student at Penn London Elementary, but he spent most of his time teaching everyone around him how to better enjoy life.

AJ loved crayons, puzzles, sea creatures, and farm animals, but there was nothing he loved more than people. He’d take you by the hand the moment he met you, and hug you goodbye as though he’d known you forever. He’d cross a sea of people to help calm a crying baby, and many of you reading this are likely taking deep breaths just like he taught you.

Survivors include in addition to his parents, his paternal grandparents, Gary and Joan Mullins of Turners Falls, Mass.; his maternal grandparents, Ellen and Don Scavia of Landenberg; his sister Hannah who adored and cared for him; and the aunts, uncles and cousins he loved to visit.

You are invited to visit with Aidan’s family and friends from 6-7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 9, at the Kuzo & Grieco Funeral Home Inc. (610-444-4116) 250 W. State St. Kennett Square, PA 19348.  A service celebrating Aidan’s life will follow at 7 p.m. The family requests that your attire be casual and comfortable and not formal. Interment will be held privately. Contributions in his memory may be made to Dravet Syndrome Foundation PO Box 16536 West Haven, CT 06516.  To view his online tribute and to share a memory with his family, please visit
