Juergen Mueller

November 4, 1945 — May 10, 2024

Juergen Klaus Mueller passed away unexpectedly on May 10, 2024. Born November 4, 1945 in Mannheim, Germany to Karl-Heinz Mueller and Erna Ericka Ihrig. Born prematurely, weighing just 4 pounds, his mother stuggled to keep him alive and fed in a war-torn city when everything was in short supply. They had no bread, no milk, no baby bottles, no diapers, no heat and not even wood for a fire. As everyone began rebuilding the cities, Juergen worked hard even as a child, and developed a fierce work ethic that continued throughout his life. At age 12, he journeyed with his mother to begin a new life in America. Eventually, he attended Salt Lake Trade Technical Institute (SLTTI) and began his career as a tool and die machinist. He worked at Eimco for many years, and then started his own shop, Wasatch Tool & Die, which he grew into a thriving enterprise. Juergen met the love of his life Julia Lynne Forsberg and they were married on November 20, 1964. They moved into a new home in Woods Cross, Utah and there he built his family and legacy for over 50 years. A dedicated member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Juergen served in many callings, including branch president, overseeing and serving the needs of an entire congregation. He loved attending and working in the Bountiful, Utah temple. An avid adventurer, Juergen enjoyed skiing, golf, racquetball, squash, fishing, hunting and boating. He had a heart of service and served countless people throughout his years. After the passing of Julia, he married Becky Schooley on July 7, 2022. Juergen was preceded in death by his wife, Julia Lynne (Forsberg) Mueller and father, Karl-Heinz Mueller. His surviving family includes: his mother, Erna (Ihrig) Vogel; brother, Mike Vogel; son, John Mueller; daughters, Heidi Rosenberg and Megan Muhlestein; 9 grandchildren, and wife Becky.
