January 29, 1964 – March 2, 2021
On Tuesday, March 2, 2021, Mike (Mule) Muhlhauser, loving son, father and friend to many, entered into rest at the age of 57.
Mike was born the second of two children to James C. and Joyce Muhlhauser in St. Louis, Missouri. He was a 1982 graduate of Lutheran High School South and a 2000 graduate of Ranken Technical College as an apprentice plumber.
Mike started his work-life as a fueler at both The Spirit of St. Louis and Lambert International Airport until he opted for a career change. He maintained a successful career as a journeyman plumber for several area plumbing companies, lastly working for Tony LaMartina Plumbing. Through his knowledge and willingness, he aided friends, families, and those in need with a plumbing emergency or question.
Mike served his faith and others as a member of the Lutheran Church of Webster Gardens, participating in children’s ministry and as a leader/participant on Christian Missions. Mike travelled both locally and internationally delivering the good news of Jesus Christ by serving others.
With a jovial laugh or a wicked chuckle, Mike could easily debate a myriad of subjects. He had an opinion and was always willing to engage in a debate or discussion, especially when it came to brewing a good beer or knowing what consisted of one. His passion was having fun, enjoying a good beer, and going on adventures.
Mike was preceded in death by his grandparents, his father Jim, and his brother Mark C. Muhlhauser. He leaves to grieve, his son Evan Muhlhauser, mother Joyce, his former spouse Julie Muhlhauser, extended family and a multitude of friends.
