Paul Peter Mueller

November 6, 1940 — June 24, 2019

Paul P. Mueller, age 78, died peacefully at Sanford Hospital in Sioux Falls, SD on June 24, 2019 surrounded by family. He was born to Roman and Elizabeth (Bohlke) Mueller on November 6, 1940. He was a 1959 graduate of Gehlen High School in LeMars, IA and attended St. John’s University in Collegeville, MN and Creighton University in Omaha, NE. He married Connie Stevens of South Sioux City, NE on August 5, 1961. Paul enjoyed a lengthy career as a manufacturing executive prior to retiring. 

Paul was first and foremost, a family man. He was fiercely dedicated to keeping his family together following the premature death of his mother in 1961 and his father in 1965. He and Connie cared for his younger siblings alongside raising five children of their own. This commitment embodies Paul’s generosity of spirit and steadfastness for doing the right thing. 

In later years, he cherished spending time with his children and grandchildren, rarely missing school and sporting events. He was an inspiration to those closest to him and will leave a void in the hearts of those who loved him. 

Paul is survived by his wife, Connie, their daughter Barbara of St. Paul, MN, son Mark of Bristol, TN, son Gregg (Michelle) of Sioux City, IA, daughter Susan of Pueblo, CO, and daughter Michelle Tepfer (Jay) of Litchfield, MN and eight grandchildren. He is also survived by brother Marlin (Kathy) of Sun City, AZ, sister Janet Gunther of Lake of the Ozarks, MO, brother Richard (Jane) of Altamonte Springs, FL, sister Mary (Rod) of Kent, WA, brother-in-law Robert Hoffman of Alton, IA and sister Margie of Orange City, IA.

He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Roman Jr., sister Margaret (Mitzi) Hoffman and brother-in-law John Gunther.
