In loving memory of

Brandon Mueller
December 7, 1983 - January 15, 2022

Brandon Joseph Mueller, 38, of Eyota, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, January 15, 2022.

Brandon was born in Rochester on December 7, 1983, the son of Kevin Mueller and Pamela Krueger. Brandon was a graduate of Elgin High School. After high school, he helped work on numerous local farms and various construction jobs before joining the Carpenters Union. In his spare time, Brandon enjoyed going hunting, fishing, going to auctions or running. He loved spending time with his friends but above all he loved spending his time with his nieces and nephews. Brandon had an infectious smirk, a hearty chuckle and a heart of gold. He was always hardworking and there to help others, whenever they needed his help. He will be missed.

Brandon is survived by his mother, Pamela (Kyle) Krueger; father, Kevin (Julie) Mueller; siblings, Melissa (Ben) Scheerer, Michael (Sarah) Mueller, Dustin (Jen) Mueller, Katrina (Dan) Priest, Adam (Meredith) Mueller; maternal grandfather, Donald Ebling; 21 nieces and nephews; numerous aunts, uncles and a host of other family and friends. Brandon was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, Lorraine Ebling and by his paternal grandparents, Joe and Elinor Mueller.

"Pam, Kevin and families, I have no words to express my sorrow over your loss of Brandon. What a handsome young man he is. I know your hearts are breaking and there is nothing that I could say that will help with the pain. I do know from experience that you must be in shock and disbelief. Sometimes it is hard to just take a breath. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers and we understand your deep pain. It isn't right for a parent to outlive their children but know that he is now at peace and in the best place possible. You will need to be very strong to get thru the days, weeks, months ahead and I pray that your faith will sustain you. May God bless all of you at this time and always. Janell and Orv Dahl"

"You showed me how to change oil on a car (like I would ever be able to do it myself) but that honestly led me to believe I could do anything. You were true, honest and sincere. Unfortunately, you didn?t get to hear all these things when you were here. Rest peacefully, Brandon. You will be missed by many. "
