Douglas Alan Mueller, son of Richard and Rose Mary (Blanchard) Mueller was born on April 22, 1959, in Anamosa, Iowa. Doug attended Stratford Community Schools and graduated from Webster City Senior High School.

Doug returned to Electrolux where he continued to work for over 33 years until the plant closed.
