Listen to this obituary

Mr. Robert William “Bill” Mustin, 71, died Wednesday, October 19 2021, at Baptist Memorial Hospital North Mississippi in Oxford, MS.  A private graveside service will be held on Thursday, October 21, 2021, at Oxford Memorial Cemetery with Rev. Robert Allen officiating.

Mr. Mustin was social by nature, never without a friend close by whether in person or through daily phone calls.  Spending time with the people he loved was an important part of his happiness and he enjoyed hosting his friends and family, cooking and grilling, and simply being together.  He rarely turned down an invitation to dinner and appreciated time spent with those in his life.  A former golfer, he loved a Saturday on the course.  His family laughs as they recall him taking his daughter, Auguste, with him to play a few rounds when she was just an infant.  He was a fan of not just football, but every Ole Miss sport there is.  Mr. Mustin enjoyed turkey hunting, and was known amongst his fellow hunters as the best turkey-caller around.  In addition to hunting, he also loved to fish and could get lost in his thoughts while at the farm.  Mr. Mustin is preceded in death by his parents, Robert Mustin, Sr. and Sarah Sue Vinson Mustin.

Mr. Mustin is survived by his daughter, Auguste Reid Hankins and her husband, John David of Rayville, LA; an uncle, Ward Mustin and his wife, Renee of Houston, TX; a granddaughter, Isla Sue Hankins of Rayville, LA; and an honorary grandson, Matthew Jones and his wife, Ashley of Oxford, MS.
