John (Jack) Joseph Muller, 94, of New Port Richey, Florida, passed away on February 3, 2021. Born June 21, 1926 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he was the son of Joseph and Louise Miller and devoted husband to the late Elizabeth Harkins Muller.
He graduated from Northeast Catholic High School and Villanova University (1949) with a degree in Economics. He was a WWII veteran and served as a Navy Lieutenant in the South Pacific Campaign. John worked most of his life as a real estate broker in northeast Philadelphia and loved his local church, St John Vianney in Gladwyne, Pennsylvania, where he sang in the choir and assisted with many parish functions. He loved his family and friends, golf, and music. When asked what his golf handicap was he would reply that it was the fact that he had a set of clubs.
John is survived by six children, Sean and wife Susan, Brian and wife Linda, Joy Moore and husband Stephen, Maureen Deegan and husband Michael, Kevin and wife Jennifer, and Shea and wife Pamela. He was also loving grandfather, and known as Papajack, to Nate, J Gabe, Andrew, Jonathan, Jennifer and husband Perry, Loren and husband Scott, Kevin and wife Anne, Michael and fiance Carly, Fiona, Liam, Abbey, Patrick, and Nolan. John is also survived by four great grandchildren, Samantha, Sydney, Lainey, and Harrison. He was also very close to his late loving friend, Doris May, of New Port Richey who passed away two years prior.
John will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all who knew him. A celebration of life and interment will be held in Pennsylvania, at a future time. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you please make a donation to the American Cancer Society. Arrangements for a mass intention will be held at St Michael the Archangel in Bayonet Point in March.
