REGINA LEADER POST:
May 3, 1932 - September 30, 2013 It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Peter Bernard Muller, on Monday, September 30, 2013, after a long three-year battle with cancer.
Peter was born on May 9, 1932, the youngest son of John and Mary Muller and grew up on the family farm near St. Benedict. He attended Belmont School until grade 7, finishing his schooling at St. Peterís College in Muenster.
On August 3, 1955, Peter married Helen Fleishhacker. (They recently celebrated their 58th wedding anniversary, a milestone that was celebrated with family.) After they married, Pete and Helen resided on and continued to run the family farm.
In 1966, Pete also took on a sales manager position with a fertilizer company and was in charge of the northern part of the province. In 1971, the family moved to Wadena where Pete took a full-time position as area sales manager for Watkins products.
In 1974, he quit travelling and worked full-time for Hampas Hardware in Wadena as the assistant manager. Pete also worked for several years at the GM dealership in Wadena, where he thoroughly enjoyed dealing with people ñ never forgetting anyone to whom he sold a vehicle. Pete enjoyed the past 16 years of retirement and enjoying his time camping and fishing, two of his favourite pastimes.
Friends, new and old, were always welcomed with lots of food and laughter at the Muller campsite. Pete was predeceased by his parents and his son Meldan.
He leaves to mourn his loss, his wife Helen; son Kevin (Deb [nÈe Van Dorpe]), granddaughters, Sarah and Kerry Mueller; son Braden (Noel [nÈe Wihak]), grandsons, Michael and Mathew Mueller; brother Eugene Muller; brother Philip Mueller; nieces, one nephew, as well as many cousins.
Prayer service was held on Thursday, October 3 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Maryís Roman Catholic Church in Wadena. Funeral service will follow on Friday, also at St. Maryís, with Fr. Fred Caylan officiating.
Interment will be at Wadena Cemetery with Tompkins Funeral Home in care of arrangements. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Peterís name may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society (www.cancer.ca).
