He was born in Graz, Austria December 25, 1931 the son of the late Johann and Franziska Mueller. John and his wife Rosa emigrated to the United States post World War II in 1952 working as sharecroppers in AL. They moved to Buffalo, NY in 1953. He moved his growing family to Virginia and then Maryland eventually settling in Lewisburg, TN, in 1986.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his wife Rosa who died 1/31/2015.
He is survived by 6 children. 4 sons Tom (Terri) Johns Island, SC, David (Debbie) La Habra CA, James (Juanita) Hagerstown MD, and Daniel (Debbie) Gray Court SC, 2 Daughters Frannie Turrell (Charlie) Damascus MD, Hannah Floyd (Jim) Lewisburg TN. He has 13 grand children and 5 great-grand children. Also surviving are 2 brothers and 2 sisters, their spouses, a sister-in-law and a number of nieces and nephews in Austria.
John and his wife were baptized as Jehovah’s Witnesses in May 1957 and they both served loyally to the best of their ability until their deaths. He enjoyed sharing his life experiences with anyone who would listen, and over the years kept an 'open door policy' to his home . . . resulting in numerous “additions” to his family. He never wavered in his love for Jehovah or his conviction that should he fall asleep in death before the end of this system, he would wake up in Paradise to greet all of us along with his wife, Rosa and others who had fallen asleep before him.
Bills-McGaugh & Hamilton Funeral Home is honored to assist the family with cremation arrangements. Condolences may be offered online at www.billsmcgaugh.com.
