Obituary for Dennis Mueller

Dennis Mueller of Richland Center, WI, passed away in his sleep at home on Sunday, November 17th, 2019. He was born on April 4, 1951, to Alice and Bernard Mueller, the eldest of nine children.

Dennis had one daughter, Melanie Kay Mueller-Ceballos, who was the love of his life. Melanie was instrumental in giving Dennis his beloved dog China, when her dog, Emma Bell had a litter, and no one wanted her because she was blind in one eye.

Dennis had a dream of becoming a rock & roll star and was fortunate enough to play with a local band on the keyboard his Uncle Gene, (Fuzz Mueller) gave him. He moved to Naples, Florida and worked as pole cat building condo's on the beach in the early '70's. He worked at Gruber Brother's Dairy and spent most of his life as a mechanic. First at his father's company, Mueller Wrecking Co Inc. Later he went on to have his own repair shop Mill Street Auto where his customers were his friends.

Dennis was very gifted and creative from his beautiful left-handed cursive writing to his meticulously cared for and decorated home. He built a tin man lawn ornament and his mom convinced him to enter it at the fair where he won a blue ribbon. He loved cars and had an antique 1961 Chrysler Imperial Convertible he restored.

Dennis always had a cheerful demeanor and was nicknamed Mr Moose! He loved his two grandchildren Isabella and Juan Jr. Dressing up like a pirate on Halloween with his grandson he became a kid again reveling in childlike wonderment. His love of music is carried on by his grandchildren who are gifted musicians. His smile will forever be in our memories. He was a devoted and caring son, always assisting his mother.

Dennis is survived by his daughter, Melanie Kay Mueller-Ceballos, her husband, Juan and his two grandchildren, Juan Jr and Isabella of Orange City, FL.

He is further survived by his siblings, Cheryl (Joe Burdick) of Williston FL, Ellen (LaVerne) Hess of Neenah, WI, Donald, Gale, Joel and Jade of Richland Center, Heidi (Brian) Tessmann of Ocala, FL, Leah (Christopher) McFarlin of Morriston, FL.

He was preceded in death by his mother Alice Mueller, his father Bernard (Pug) Mueller and his beloved dog China.

A celebration of his life will be held on June 27th, 2020 @ Rockbridge from 1:00-4:00 p.m. The family would like to thank Denny's friends, relatives and health care providers for all the care, prayers and visits during his recent illness.
