Richard “Dick” Mullineaux, a longtime leader in the New Albany office of Kightlinger & Gray LLP, died last month at the age of 66, the firm announced Monday.

Mullineaux died May 26 at his home in Floyd Knobs, according to his firm. He was surrounded by his family and close friends.

A senior partner in the New Albany office, Mullineaux served on Kightlinger & Gray’s management team for 15 years. His practice included civil rights, construction, professional liability, product liability and transportation matters, as well as corporate and business litigation.

Mullineaux was also active within the legal community, serving as secretary/treasurer of The Sherman Minton American Inn of Court and teaching at the Indiana Trial Advocacy College. Mullineaux was also a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates, and in 2010, he won the Indiana State Bar Association Civility Award.

Kightlinger & Gray described Mullineaux as having a passion for mentoring young lawyers and for serving people with disabilities. At his church, Lincoln Hills Christian Church in Corydon, Mullineaux served on the Board for Disability Ministry, according to his obituary.

Mullineaux is also being remembered for his devotion to his church, family and community, including his participation in the New Albany Elks Club and One Southern Indiana.

“Dick is irreplaceable and we are honored to have worked with such an impactful and passionate person,” Kightlinger & Gray said in a news release.

Born July 30, 1952, in Corpus Christi, Texas, Mullineaux earned degrees from Indiana University in 1974 and George Mason University School of Law in 1978. He is survived by his wife, Carole, three daughters, one son, nine grandchildren and his sister.

A funeral service was held Friday at Lincoln Hills Christian Church. Mullineaux was then interred at Kraft Graceland Cemetery in New Albany.
