Horst Mueller, 74, of Chicago, IL, and rural Hixton died Saturday, Nov. 1, 2008, at the Swedish Covenant Hospital in Chicago.

Horst was born April 5, 1934, in Bochum-Reimke, Germany, to parents Wilhelm and Elfriede (Dormann) Mueller. He graduated from high school and married Hildegard Loch in Bochum, Germany, Aug. 22, 1953. Following his marriage, he and his family moved to Chicago where he was employed as a mason and crew foreman in commercial construction for many years.

Thirty years ago, Horst and Hildegard purchased a hobby farm in Springfield Township, Jackson County, where their family enjoyed spending many happy hours.

Horst enjoyed participating in many outdoor activities, particularly hunting and fishing. He enjoyed a wide variety of other activities, including playing the guitar, oil painting and taxidermy.

Horst will also be remembered for his outgoing personality and helpful nature and also for his special ability to repair and refurbish a wide variety of items, a talent which he readily shared with friends and neighbors.

He is survived by his wife, Hildegard; one son, Frank Mueller of Chicago, and other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his son, Detlef, in 1982, and by his brother, Heinz Mueller, in Germany.

Funeral services for Horst Mueller were held at 1 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 6, 2008, at the Jensen-Modjeski Funeral Home, Hixton, with Reverend John Kaplinski officiating. Burial took place in the Sechlerville Cemetery, rural Hixton. Friends called one hour prior to services at the funeral home.
