From the office of Pastor Chuck Mueller, Jr:
It is with a heavy heart, that I tell you Pastor Charlie Mueller, Sr., my father and Trinity’s Pastor Emeritus “Pastor Senior” was welcomed into heaven to be with Jesus on Wednesday, October 30, 2019 at the age of 90 years after a battle with esophageal cancer. He was the oldest living male in his family’s history.
My family and I are grieved to have lost him here on earth. Nevertheless, we are celebrating the impact his life had on all of us and the great joy he is experiencing as he beholds his precious Savior face-to-face. We can anticipate the day that we will be reunited with him in glory!
