Timothy Gerald Mueller was born on August 19, 1958 in Yankton, South Dakota to Francis and LaVonne (Thunker) Mueller. He grew up on a farm near Crofton and worked for various companies and farmers around the Yankton and Crofton areas. Tim was currently employed at the Gary Jessen Feedlots of Bloomfield, NE. He cherished his parents, children, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and his special friend, Lori Miller and her sons as well as his many, many friends. Tim was a man not afraid to work for a living, passionate about his loved ones, a man who lived without fear, lived on the edge, loved to ride his Harleys and be the first person to hold out his hand for a friendly shake and show that special smirky smile everyone knew as Tim.
Tim is survived by his three children: Chanda Mueller (Brett Zavadil) of Yankton, Chelsi Mueller (Corey Irwin) of Wagner, SD and Ashley Mueller (BJ Houston) of Memphis, TN; three grandchildren: Tennessee, Ruger and Tatiana; parents, Francis and LaVonne Mueller of Crofton; 10 siblings: Mike (Terry) of Crofton, Kenny (Dawn) of Crofton, Gord (Lori) of Crofton, Jeff (Jane) of Yankton, Pete (Lisa) of Crofton, Nancy (John) Himes of Yankton, Joe (Tina) of Yankton, Wanda (Tom) Allen of Crofton, Luann (Brett) Kennedy of Yankton and Lynn Mueller (Cody Richardson) of Yankton; many nieces and nephews; and special friend, Lori Miller and her children of Bloomfield.
Tim was preceded in death by his grandparents, Pete and Theresa Mueller and William and Leona Thunker; and a sister-in-law, Sheryl Mueller.
