'A calming influence'
"We shall miss a distinguished, frank and faithful colleague, friend and nationalist whose unique personality and generosity of spirit will remain an inspiration to all of us who knew him. He was the true embodiment of service to people and an example to those who aspire to political excellence."
— Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller
'A distinguished parliamentarian'
"Seymour Mullings was a distinguished parliamentarian who was highly regarded by his colleagues on both sides of the political divide. His sharpness of mind and abiding commitment to nation building made it easy to work with him and has earned him an enviable place in the annals of public service and representational politics in Jamaica."
— Andrew Holness, Opposition leader
'A man for all seasons'
"Seymour Foggy Mullings was an excellent political representative who was statesman-like in his approach to ministerial ambassadorial duties. He was very much a man for all seasons who 'walked with kings but kept the common touch.
— PJ Patterson, former prime minister
'A humble and unassuming man'
"Mr Mullings was a humble and unassuming man who was at all times approachable to anyone regardless of his political persuasion. He was a lover of music and an accomplished pianist. He was the last of the colourful politicians who dedicated his entire life to the service of his fellow Jamaicans and I will miss him tremendously."
— Audley Shaw, Member of Parliament for North East Manchester
'An example of quality people-centred representation'
"Foggy Mullings has bequeathed to me as the current Member of Parliament, and to all the Councillors of South East St. Ann, a fine and enduring example of quality people-centred representation. He has also provided us as leaders with a model for community social and economic development based on consultation, persistent advocacy and hard work, that will be his perpetual legacy as a true champion of the people."
— Lisa Hanna, Member of Parliament for South East St Ann
'He must be applauded'
"In times of grief it is in good faith that we console each other. Seymour Mullings dedicated over three decades to the service of his fellow citizens and for that he must be applauded. Additionally his affable nature and the way he conducted himself went a far way in helping to break down some of the divisiveness of our often tribal political system."
— Floyd Green, President of G2K
