Warren Albert Muelling, 94, a longtime resident of Brookfield, died May 18, 2020, two days shy of what would have been his 95th birthday at the Illinois Veterans Home in Manteno. 

Mr. Muelling was born May 20, 1925 in Chicago. He was a proud U.S. Navy veteran who served in World War II as a Pharmacist's Mate 3rd Class.  

He was retired from his job as a bookkeeper for the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe Railroad and enjoyed many years of retirement activities. He loved to golf, was active in the AMVETS and Loyal Order of the Moose. 

He loved the old YMCA in LaGrange and was known by his nickname "CUP" or "WAM" and by the wave in his hair. He and wife, Muriel, took many cruises together along with their many local friends. If anyone saw a man hitting golf balls in Ehlert Park the past 40 years, it was Warren.

Mr. Muelling was the husband of the late Muriel (nee Klein), who preceded him in death only 14 days earlier; the father of Tom (Sharon) and Jay; and an uncle and friend to many.  

Services and interment were held May 27 at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery, Elwood. 

Johnson-Nosek Funeral Home, Brookfield, handled arrangements. 

Online condolences may be offered to the family at JohnsonNosek.com.
