Karl Ludwig Mueller of Medicine Hat, Alberta passed away on August 8th, 2020 at the age of 67 years. He leaves to cherish his memory his two sons, Lu (Ludwig) Mueller and Karl-William Mueller; his sister MaryAnn Mueller (Toby Weisgerber); and nephew, Matthew Weisgerber. Karl was born in Heidelberg, Germany on December 11, 1952 to Fritz and Anne Mueller. They immigrated to Canada in 1954 and settled in Medicine Hat. In 1957, Karl’s sister MaryAnn was born. Karl graduated from Medicine Hat High School before attending Medicine Hat College. He attended the University of Calgary, graduating in 1975 (B.Sc. Hon.). Karl then moved to Victoria, British Columbia to study Psychology at the University of Victoria on a full scholarship. There, he met and married his first partner Cheryl Mallette. After graduating from the University of Victoria (M.A., Ph.D.) he began his career as a Registered Psychologist, providing Counselling and Educational Psychology services in Victoria. With the birth of his son Lu, in 1985, Karl packed up the family and moved to Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan where he worked as a School Psychologist for many rural schools in the north-central region. A few years later the family decided to return to BC, settling in Castlegar where his son William was born in 1991. With a new addition to the family, Karl accepted a position as a Child Psychologist at the Trail Children's Development Centre and also had a successful private practice. In 2004 Karl returned to his beloved hometown of Medicine Hat to begin a new chapter in his life. He accepted a position as a Statistics Instructor in the Division of Science & Health Studies at Medicine Hat College (his Alma Mater). For his dedication and outstanding work at Medicine Hat College, Karl was recognized with a Service Achievement Award in 2012 and a 15 Year Service Award in 2019. In his work for the college, Karl was known for being an enthusiastic and innovative instructor who always had great consideration for his students and colleagues. Outside of his work as an instructor, Karl often volunteered his time and participated in many college and community activities. Karl worked passionately and tirelessly as an Instructor at the college from 2004 until his retirement in 2020. Karl’s dedication and passion for helping others extended far beyond his work. For over 20 years, Karl was a distinguished member and often acting President of Jest Toastmasters. Karl was also a significant member of the Archaeological Society of Alberta - Southeastern Centre, where he has served as Director, President, and Past President. Karl was a devoted and fun-loving father who always encouraged his sons to expand their horizons. He was adventurous and enjoyed trying new things, going to new places, and sharing what he discovered with his children. As a child himself, affectionately nicknamed “Loots” by his sister MaryAnn, he learned carpentry from his father. He enjoyed making puzzles from wood and built a birdhouse which was used by many sparrows. Even as an adult, Karl had a fantastic sense of humour and never lost his appreciation for fun novelties like magic tricks, illusions, and brain teasers. He loved watching old movies and listening to music such as The Beatles, Burton Cummings, and Leonard Cohen. He approached everyday problems with unconventional and brilliant solutions. Karl was very proud of his German heritage and greatly enjoyed visiting his birthplace of Heidelberg. Karl’s presence will be greatly missed by his family, friends, colleagues, students, and countless others who have had the pleasure of meeting him. We give our heartfelt thanks to the doctors, nurses, and staff of the Medicine Hat Hospital for their care and support of Karl and his family. A private time of remembrance will be held at a later date. Condolences may be sent through or to subject heading Karl Mueller.

I was honestly shocked and saddened when I read the obituary about Karl in the Trail Times today. I worked with Karl in Trail, BC at the Children's Development Centre. A small (but mighty!) team of us ran a children's program at the centre. i have very happy memories of that time and of Karl - we were able to support young families and children in need and Karl's approach was always positive, supportive and creative. Even though our work was sometimes stressful we always managed to still have a lot of fun and I have fond memories of the laughter we all shared!
Over the years we kept in touch by email and I always loved to hear from him and what was going on in his life. I am sure he is very much missed especially by those closest to him. My heartfelt condolences go out to his family. Rest in peace Karl.
