Kurt Daniel Mueller, of Flagstaff, Arizona, was called to his Heavenly home on Sunday, January 3rd, 2021 at the age of 61.
Kurt was born on July 23rd, 1959 to Robert and Donna Mueller in Monroe, Michigan. During high school, Kurt met his beautiful wife, Hannah Jay Mueller. They continued dating through school at Dr. Martin Luther College. After 6 years, Kurt traveled to Japan where Hannah was called as a teacher to ask her to spend the rest of their lives together. They were married in 1982 in Yale, Michigan and together raised three sons Silas, James, and Jacob. Their family moved to Flagstaff, Arizona in 1996 where Kurt was called to serve as Principal of Mt. Calvary Lutheran School. Kurt spent every day from then on improving the school and church grounds and thinking of ways to grow the church community.
Kurt and Hannah's life together was devoted to spreading the word of Jesus through his work as a Father, Principal, Teacher, and Coach. Kurt took every opportunity to speak to those he met about the word of God. He had an immense passion for his hobbies including playing basketball, running track, refereeing basketball games, and working on his 59 Ford. Most of all he loved spending time with his loving wife, children, and grandchildren, especially at church.
Everyone who had the pleasure of knowing Kurt will remember him as loving, devoted, passionate, energetic, active, and a true believer in Christ our Savior. Everyone who met Kurt was better for knowing him.
Kurt was preceded in death by his father, Robert. He is survived by his wife Hannah, his three children, Silas (Laura), James (Hannah), and Jacob, his mother Donna, brothers Paul (Julie) and Mark, (Torri), sister Sharon (Eric), and grandchildren Allison and Zachary.
