Roger Wayne Muller, age 76, of Levan, Utah, passed peacefully at home, surrounded by family on August 20th, 2023. He was dearly loved and admired by family and friends. He was born January 20, 1947, in Cedar Falls, Iowa to Andrew and Lois Peters Muller.

He graduated from Cedar Falls High School in 1965. While in high school he worked at the Cedar Falls Daily Record newspaper office. He then graduated from United Electronics Laboratory Institute in West Des Moines, Iowa with an Electronics Technology diploma in 1967.

As a result of this education, he went to work for General Dynamics (GD) in Fort Worth, Texas as an Electronics Technician. Two years later he was promoted to an engineering position and offered the opportunity to go back to school to get a degree in Electrical Engineering. His work moved him to Ogden Air Logistics Center based at Hill Air Force Base, where he met the love of his life, Janean Blanchard. They were married November 5th, 1977. Roger went on to graduate from Weber State College in 1980, Magna Cum Laude, with degrees in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics.

He joined the Hewlett Packard (HP) team in 1980 as a Staff and Sales Engineer. He spent 23 ½ years at HP in a variety of roles, retiring as Division Operations Manager, and Manufacturing Operations Manager. During this time, he attended the Wharton School of Business Executive Programs focusing on Leadership and Business Planning.

He enjoyed playing racquetball, golf, woodworking, wood carving, coin collecting, hunting, fishing, riding ATV’s and exploring the mountains.

Roger loved seeing what others created, learning from them, sharing what he knew, but mostly he just loved talking with all people.

Of all his accomplishments, the greatest by far was the amazing job he did raising his 4 sons. He was a supportive, loving father and grandfather and was always available and eager to help them work things out. He advised and counseled them and supported their projects their sports and special occasions. He loved spending time with his family.
