Robert C Mueller
Chilton, WI

Robert Clemens “Bob” Mueller, age 80, of Chilton, died on Thursday, October 24, 2019 at the Homestead Care Center in New Holstein.  He was born November 1, 1938 in the Town of Stockbridge, son of the late Clarence & Esther (Wettstein) Mueller.  He married Marie Halbach on September 19, 1961 at St. Charles Catholic Church in Charlesburg.  

Following his high school graduation, Bob served in the United States Army and shortly following his discharge he began working for the Calumet County Highway Department.   With his many years with the county, Bob knew the history of every road in the county, able to recall the year the road was constructed and who did the work. When he retired, he could be found delivering automotive parts throughout the area for Bumper to Bumper in Chilton; a position that allowed him the opportunity to see many people and impart his wisdom of the world upon them.  

He was a member of Good Shepherd Catholic Church, formerly St. Mary Parish, where he had been a member of the Holy Name Society and served as an usher. Bob and Marie were also avid card players who enjoyed the company of others at their card clubs, one of which they belonged to for 57 years.  

Since life can sometimes be hectic and unpredictable, Bob appreciated the soothing sights and sounds he witnessed while watching the Weather Chanel and HGTV.  He was also known as an excellent Neighborhood Watch Person because he had the uncanny ability to notice even the smallest deviation from the norm.  

Bob loved all of the blessings he enjoyed throughout life, but above all else, his family came first in his life.  Nothing brought him more joy than to spend time with those he loved the most.  He will be fondly remembered and greatly missed by his wife: Marie; his children: Stephen D. Mueller, Linda (Jeff) Hedrich, Ken (Jean) Mueller, Ron (Tina) Mueller, Kevin (Julie) Mueller, Rick (Brenda) Mueller, Lori (Paul) Schmitz; grandchildren: Michael (Mary) Mueller, Josh (Liz) Hedrich, Joe (Alisha) Hedrich, Shayla Mueller & Justin, Kelsey Mueller, Paige (Ty) Bodden, Ashlynn Mueller, Nicole (Matt) Vetting, Brittney Mueller, Alyssa Mueller & Dave, Madison Mueller & Colton, Andy (Miranda) Bell, Ryan Bell, Austin Mueller, Kennidie Mueller, Jaymi Schmitz; his great grandchildren: Lucy, Maxwell, Korbin, Wesley, Lucas, Leora, Isla, Scarlett, Faith and another to be arriving soon; his siblings: Dolores Halbach, Ruth Molitor, Betty Buechel, David Mueller, Donny Mueller; and his siblings-in-law: Lari Grebe, Betty Kraus, Allen (Chris) Halbach, Ruth Halbach.  He is further survived by many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. 

Bob was preceded in death by his parents; his in-laws: Alois & Catherine Halbach; a sister: Doris (Eddie) Roehrig; and his siblings-in-law: Alois Halbach, Jr., Earl (Monica) Halbach, Willie Buechel, John Molitor, Chuck Grebe, Marvin Kraus, Roger (Helen) Halbach and Herbie Muellenbach.  

Funeral service will be at 11:00 am on Thursday, October 31, 2019 at the Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) in Chilton.  Friends may call at the funeral home from 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm on Wednesday, October 30, 2019 and on Thursday at the funeral home from 9:30 am until 10:45 am.  A vigil service will take place at the funeral home Wednesday evening at the close of visitation.  

A memorial fund has been established in the name of Robert C. "Bob" Mueller.

Bob’s family would like to thank the entire staff of the Calumet County Home Care and Hospice for all of the loving care that was provided  to both him and his entire family.  
My thoughts are with Rick and all of the family. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Remember the good times and appreciate the time you had together.

My deepest sympathy to Marie and family. I have many memories of Robert when we were growing up. Playing games on the farms, water fights, the circus at the Miller Farm, swimming in Lake Winnebago. After high school we took different paths but our visits were always filled with great conversation. Rest in peace dear cousin.

Rick and family - you are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Our sympathy to Marie and Family. I so enjoyed working the years with Marie. Blessings on her during this difficult time. Hugs and prayers.

To the entire Mueller family, what a legacy Bob left behind. He and Marie raised an “awesome “ family. Always a smile on his face maybe even a “ smart” comment. May the twinkle in his eye live on in all of you. Continue your gatherings and laughs in your tight knit family and remember he is always in your heart. You are all in our prayers.

My Dad worked at the County, sometimes with Bob. I never heard Pop say a bad word about Bob. In fact he was always nice to me, even though he didn't know me form Adam. Never forget that smile,neither. Cherish the memories
