Vernon Mueller Obituary
Vernon Alfred Mueller, 88, passed away on June 22, 2014 with his family surrounding him at his home is Seguin, Texas. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle and friend to so many.

This outstanding member of the greatest generation was born on February 12, 1926 and proudly served his country in the United States Navy during World War II with courage and distinction. He dedicated his life to working hard, yet enjoying the simple pleasures life had to offer such as fishing, hunting and gardening. He was a man who was one with nature. Following his father's footsteps, Vernon worked as a butcher with Swift & Armor, Milton Provision Company, and L&H Packing. He retired from Randolph Air Force Base in 1988 at the age of 62.

Vernon was a man of honor and integrity; a man that loved his wife dearly and believed in a strong family value system. Vernon exhibited servant leadership throughout his life and was a proud member of Saint James Catholic Church, Knights of Columbus Council 3412, American Legion and McQueeny Lions Club where he gave countless hours of his time.

Vernon was preceded in death by his daughter Linda Morrow, parents Emil and Ella (Zinsymeyer) Mueller, sister Fay Hooks and brothers Woodrow Mueller and Jackie Mueller. He leaves to cherish his memory, his loving wife of 67 years, Olga, and daughter Verna Lee Carr (Rocky) of Austin. Vernon leaves behind four grandchildren: Gary (Ann) of San Antonio; Vernon (Jennifer) of Corpus Christi; Kristy (Ruben) of Dripping Springs; and Brian (Jennifer) of Omega Bay. Vernon had 8 great-grandchildren: Colton (20), Justin (15), Katie (14), Kelly (11), Olivia (7), Landon (5), Isabella (4) and Sampson (4). Vernon is survived by his siblings Leon Mueller of San Antonio, Russell Mueller (Jackie) of Livermore, California, Dolly Cook (David) of Ft. Worth, Charlene Patterson (Pat) of Grand Prairie, Delores Payne of Tyler. Throughout the years, he also had a significant impact in the lives of many nephews and nieces that he leaves behind.

Vernon's life will be honored and remembered in a mass of resurrection on Saturday, June 28, 2014 at 1:30 p.m. at St. James Catholic Church in Seguin, Texas. Interment will be held in a private service for immediate family on Monday, June 30, 2014 at Ft. Sam Houston National Cemetery in San Antonio, Texas. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Heart to Heart Hospice of San Marcos or the Wounded Warrior Project. On behalf of Vernon's family, we extend our sincerest gratitude to everyone for their support, encouragement and thoughtfulness on his journey from this life, to his eternal one. We tip our hats and give one final salute to a man who kept us laughing with his jokes and loved a good game of dominoes. He will be missed but never forgotten and we will forever cherish the special memories of Vernon that are embedded in our hearts.
