Ryan Paul Mueller

Hawarden, IA: Ryan Paul Mueller, 19, of Hawarden, Iowa, died unexpectedly Sunday, May 1, 2022, at his home. A Celebration of Ryan’s Life will be held Friday, May 6, at 11:00 AM at the Hawarden Community Center with Pastor Cy McMahon officiating. Visitation, with the family present, will be held Thursday, May 5, from 5:00-7:00 PM with a prayer service to follow at 7:00 PM at the Hawarden Community Center.


   In lieu of flowers, the family prefers memorials which will go towards a fund to support Ryan’s siblings. Porter Funeral Home of Hawarden is assisting the family with arrangements.


   Ryan Paul Mueller, son of Jeffery and Bobbie (Ackerman) Mueller, was born February 10, 2003, at Sioux City, Iowa. Ryan spent the first 10 years of his life growing up in Sioux City where he attended Longfellow Elementary School and later Spalding Elementary School. In 2013, Ryan and his family moved to Hawarden, Iowa where he attended West Sioux Community Schools, graduating in 2021. Ryan was currently attending Southeast Tech in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Ryan had been working for his parents at Downtown Grille in Orange City, Iowa where he was taking on more responsibilities as a catering manager. Ryan previously worked at Pizza Ranch and Casey’s General Store in Hawarden.


   Ryan had an infectious smile that made it hard for others not to smile back. He loved hanging out with his family and friends. He had a contagious personality and was a friend to all. Ryan enjoyed soccer, basketball, and playing video games.


   Ryan is survived by his parents, Jeff and Bobbie Mueller of Hawarden; siblings, Adam and Allison Mueller of Hawarden; paternal grandmother, Lynda Mueller of Sioux City; maternal grandparents, Paul and Pam Ackerman of Sioux City; special friend, Mckenzie Barr; four uncles; three aunts; and several cousins.

Bobbie, Jeff and family,
Our hearts break for you all. I remember when you were at your moms and I came by with gifts for Ryan. Seems like it was yesterday and he should still be that little baby.
It was fun to watch him grow and to see his accomplishments made over the years.
He has gone far too soon but I have faith he will continue to watch over you all and he is celebrating with our family that went before us. May you find comfort and peace in the days ahead and know how loved you are.
Love you all,
Cousin Shannon
