Obituary

James Everett Mueller, 62, of Pine Island, MN died unexpectedly on September 1, while trimming trees - a job he loved to do. Jim was born on May 20, 1958 in Winona to Everett and Shirley (Golish) Mueller.
He was a graduate of Winona Senior High School Class of 1976. He had a successful career as a business owner and tree trimmer and took great pride in his work. But he was never as happy as when he was in his boat, probably catching a bigger fish than you. He was a truly talented angler. He loved his family fiercely and if you knew him, you never left a visit without seeing the latest photos of his loved ones. He had a soft spot for chocolate labs, especially Charlie and Chelsey. He never said no to an opportunity to take out the 4-wheeler. He lived for his yearly trip to Pincherry Resort on Bass Lake, making memories with family. His last pride and joy was his 1941 Chevy pickup - the toy he never got to enjoy.
Jim will be sadly missed by his parents, his children Kristi (Kelly) Pogatchnik and David Mueller, his life companion Judy Kunz, his brother Dennis (Sally) Mueller, and sisters Nancee Kukowski and her fiancée Buzz Rolbiecki, Jolene (Mike) Bundy, and Judy's children Scott (Beth) Kunz, Wayne (Meghan) Kunz, Rick Kunz. He is also survived by 8 grandchildren - the little ones who brought so much joy to his life. Jim will also be forever remembered by his numerous aunts and uncles, nieces, nephews and extended family and dear friends. Jim was preceded in death by his grandparents Donald and Margaret Golish, Clarence and Laura Mueller, uncle Robert Mueller, uncle Donald Golish, and brother-in-law Steve Kukowski.
