Robert Muller Sr.
Robert Muller Sr, 85, passed away peacefully at home on September 21, 2020 after a long and courageous battle with pulmonary fibrosis.
Bob was born in Queens NY, moved upstate and married the love of his life, Anna Rosenquist Muller, on July 10, 1954. Bob and Anna lived and raised their five children in Coxsackie, NY before moving to North Port, FL 15 years ago. Bob worked for the NYS Department of Corrections for over 35 years prior to retiring. Bob formed many strong friendships with the people he worked with in Corrections. Bob was a hard-working man often taking on carpentry jobs as this was one of many skills that came naturally to him. There never seemed to be anything he couldn’t build or fix. In addition to carpentry, Bob was an amazing gardener sharing the fruits of his labor with friends and neighbors in both Coxsackie and North Port. Bob was an avid sportsman enjoying hunting and fishing. Boating was a favorite pastime with many hours spent on the Hudson River, St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario. Bob was active in the Coxsackie Yacht Club for several years and even served as Commodore.
Bob was predeceased by his parents, Charles and Edna Muller and his wife Anna. Bob is survived by his brother Chuck Muller (Linda), children Alice Jenkins, Robert Alan Muller Jr, Kathleen Swengros (Richard), John Muller (Nora), Susan Lasher (Perry). Bob is also survived by grandchildren Alison Potter (John), Chester Jenkins III, Richard Swengros Jr (Jenna), Lynn Harner (Keith), Catherine France, Nikki Muller, John Muller Jr (Nadia), Brittany Pebler, Sara Lasher, Kaylee Lasher (Leo) and great-grandchildren Elizabeth Potter, Addison Swengros, Riley Swengros, Christopher Harner, Emily Harner, Wyatt France, Hayden France, Madeline Muller, Anya Muller and Rosalie Muller. Bob will be remembered by his family as Big Bobby Muller, Bob the Builder, the family chef, for his guidance and wisdom, and his many stories.
The family would like to give special thanks to their friends Harry & Nancy Kelble and Bonnie O’Brien for their continued support through this difficult time.
