Sterling LeRoy Mueller
Of Des Plaines 

Sterling LeRoy Mueller was born May 26, 1927, in Lytton, Iowa to Everett L. and Ruby M. (nee Goodwin) Mueller.  He died July 19, 2019, at The Moorings in Arlington Heights.   

During his junior year of high school, Sterling enlisted in the US Navy and was stationed on a ship bound for Japan. After the war was over, he returned and earned his GED and went on to attend John Brown University to study engineering.  His engineering studies led him to work in the construction industry, where he became a supervisor for many companies, building many churches and buildings throughout the Chicago area. His greatest achievement was building a 48 -story high rise in downtown Chicago. Sterling was a member of the Carpenter’s Union for 40 years. Sterling was a strong believer in Jesus Christ and was strongly involved in mission opportunities through his church. He served as Missions coordinator on the church board and took many trips to work on hurricane relief help in Florida.  His favorite trips were to Covenant Mountain Mission Camp in Virginia.
