Steve was born on July 8, 1952 in Davenport, a son of the late Wesley and Verna (Petersen) Muller. He graduated from Durant Community High School in 1970 and attended Iowa State University.

Steve suffered a traumatic brain injury as the result of an automobile accident, which left him with severely limited physical capabilities. He lived at home with his parents for more than 30 years before he moved to Bettendorf Health Care Center in 2006.

Even with his many limitations, Steve never lost his sense of humor and was known to be mischievous with his family, friends and caregivers. He enjoyed listening to music, looking at pretty girls, and was an unwavering fan of Mickey Mantle and the New York Yankees.

Steve leaves fond memories to be cherished by his brothers, Ronald (Bernice) Muller of Camas, Washington; Brian (Sandy) Muller of Moline, Illinois; Jeff (Dawn) Muller of East Rochester, New York; and sister, Linda (Jeff) Stengel of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; four nieces and one nephew, and three great-nieces and three great-nephews; his aunt, Darlene Mays of Wilton, and uncle Lee (Mary Ann) Muller of Walcott.

“Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. O LORD, truly I am your servant; I am your servant, the son of your maidservant; you have freed me from my chains.” Psalm 116:15.
