George Joseph Mueller Jr., 79, of Millsboro, passed away Friday, April 12, 2019, at Beebe Healthcare in Lewes. He was born July 4, 1939, in Bronx, N.Y., son of the late George J. Sr. and Edna Mae (Aspell) Mueller.
Mr. Mueller was a proud U.S. Army veteran, having honorably served from 1958 to 1961. His patriotism continued throughout his life as a member of American Legion Post 28. Mr. Mueller was the vice president of sales for the Tarkett company, retiring in 2003 after 42 dedicated years. His interests were many and varied, and included fishing, travel, golf, and playing cards. More than anything, however, Mr. Mueller cherished time spent with his family, especially his beloved grandchildren, who brought him insurmountable joy. He was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend who was loved by many and will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
In addition to his parents, Mr. Mueller was preceded in death by his first wife, Caroline D. Mueller, in 1998. He is survived by his wife of 16 years, Karen C. Mueller of Millsboro; his sons: Andrew Mueller (Karen) of Cummings, Ga., and William Mueller (Sheila) of Dumfries, Va.; his daughters: Laura McKercher (Tom) of Johnson City, N.Y., and Kathleen Banach (John) of Plantation, Fla.; his grandchildren: Dylan, Kiara, Ryan, Jake, Kelly, Sophia, Matthew, Luca, Matteo, Grace, and Justin; and his brothers: Robert Mueller (Ellen) of Ormond Beach, Fla., Dennis Mueller (Gladys) of Erie, Colo., and Tom Mueller (Mary) of Newburgh, N.Y.
A Celebration of Life will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Thursday, April 18, at American Legion Post 28, 31768 Legion Road, Millsboro. Arrangements by Parsell Funeral Homes and Crematorium, Lewes.
