Obituary

The family of Ron Muehlhausen is saddened to announce Ron’s passing on March 17, 2023 in The Villages FL, under the care of the Cornerstone Hospice House for his challenges with Parkinson’s Disease.

Ron was born July 12, 1941 in St Peter, MN to Warren and Lila (Sohm) Muehlhausen. He grew up on the family farm in Rush River, MN and attended country day school until the 6th grade. He graduated from Le Sueur High School in 1959 having lettered in football, basketball and baseball. He attended St Cloud State University and graduated from Mankato State University in 1964 with a degree in Political Science.

Ron married Nancy (Easterlund) in 1963 in Le Sueur, MN. They raised 3 boys, Matthew (1964), Mark (1967) and Michael (1971) born in Minnesota, Indiana, and Wisconsin respectively.  Ron was hard working and fun loving, never forgetting his upbringing on the family farm. Holidays and events were always spent with the extended families of Ron and Nancy.

A summer job at age 16 with the Green Giant Company of Le Sueur, MN led Ron into a 25 year career raising, harvesting, canning and managing green bean production facilities in Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois, with the majority of time in Beaver Dam Wisconsin. 

This background led to a long association with Nicklaus Enterprises, Inc of Irma, Wisconsin again in green bean production.  Ron then went back to Green Giant/Pillsbury in Minneapolis, Minnesota for 4 years before retiring from the green bean business.

His association with Nicklaus Enterprises led him to become a founding member and President of Dealers Credit Inc.  A unique and premier finance company serving the outdoor power equipment industry across the United States in only 5 years.  Ron capped his career at Sheffield Financial as Executive VP until his retirement. This was a great challenge which Ron loved and enjoyed every day.

Ron is survived by his loving wife Nancy (Easterlund) Muehlhausen, his sons Matthew (Theresa) Muehlhausen, Mark Muehlhausen and Michael (Jenny) Muehlhausen; his 5 grandchildren William Muehlhausen, Wesley Muehlhausen, August Muehlhausen, Jace Muehlhausen and Hannah Muehlhausen as well as his brother Allan and Char (Horn) Muehlhausen along with many nieces nephews relatives and friends.

Ron was preceded in death by his parents Warren Muehlhausen and Lila (Sohm) Muehlhausen, and his brother Eldred and sister-in-law Janell (nee Eastvold) Muehlhausen.
