Deacon Robert Mueller

 

Jesus is Lord! Bobby Mueller has gone home to continue his life in the Kingdom of Heaven.
 
The Rev. Dr. Robert P. Mueller passed into the arms of our Lord on January 10, 2019, with his love Joy Lynn at his bedside, surrounded by his children and family, after battling courageously in faith against a long illness. 
 
Bob and Joy’s life together began in 1957, marrying in 1960. Over 59 years their passionate and enduring love for each other produced 7 children; Bob Jr. (Joanna) Debbie (Alan), Don (Molly), Mike (Jennifer), Ray (Kristen), Chris (Christina), and Joe (Jodie); 26 grandchildren, and 30 great grandchildren, all of whom Bob loved so much, and for whom his greatest wish was always that they “stay close to the Lord.”
 
Born February 1, 1941 in Indiana to beloved parents Eugene and Margaret Mueller, raised in Chicago, Bob was a proud graduate of Fenwick High School and University of Illinois Dental School. He was a patriot and a veteran having served as a Captain in the US Army. He later settled in Vista, California, where he practiced family dentistry over the course of four decades. But above all things Bob was a loving and faithful husband, a devoted and caring father, and a proud evangelist of Christ’s love and mercy and defender of the Roman Catholic faith. Ordained a permanent Deacon in the Roman Catholic Church in 1981, clergy at the parishes of St Francis of Assisi in Vista, and Saint Peter in Fallbrook, Bob was known for his oratory prowess and passion to preach the Gospel of our Lord’s mercy and desire for loving relationship in the face of any obstacle whether it be from the Pulpit, or from any mountaintop or stoop. He performed countless number of baptisms and marriages, and continued his ministry even into failing health, preaching with his oxygen canister in tow. 
His life, love affair with Joy, and ministry were extended in 2012, with the unselfish gift of his daughter Debbie’s kidney. He is additionally survived by his siblings, whom he was always grateful for and whom he always loved dearly: Anne, Dottie, Mary, Ray, and Ellen.
 
Services will be held at St Francis Church with a vigil at 7 pm on Monday, 1/14, and Mass of Christian Burial at 11 am on Tuesday, 1/15.
