Quinn Joseph Mueller , Age 19


March 03, 2003 --June 25, 2022

Quinn Joseph Mueller was born March 3, 2003, and passed away June 25, 2022 in a tragic car accident. Quinn was a 2021 graduate of Baraboo High School. Quinn is survived by his mother, Margaret Banker, his father and stepmother, Mark and Lori Mueller, his sister, Sydney Mueller, his large extended family which includes many aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents whom he held dear, and a group of young men who were more like brothers than friends.

Quinn attended the University of Kentucky school of Engineering and was a member of the Kentucky Army National Guard. While there, Quinn joined the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity. He planned to enter the skilled trades and was inspired by his work and life working this summer with concrete.

A visitation for Quinn will be held on Thursday, June 30, 2022 from 1-4 p.m., with a memorial service starting at 4, in the gym at Baraboo High School, 1201 Draper St, Baraboo, WI 53913. While at Army Basic training Quinn found his faith.

Quinn was a lifelong and avid outdoorsman, having learned to shoot from his grandfather, Scott Mueller, in the wilds of northern Wisconsin and Michigan. He loved to be on his home lakes of Gilmore Lake in Minong, WI and Chaney Lake in Wakefield, MI. Fishing, swimming and huntingit didnt matter what he was doing, he took every opportunity to spend time outdoors. Most of the pictures he would send his friends and family were after landing a fish on a frozen lake or sitting in a turkey blind, seeing no birds but having the time of his life. Quinn was never alone in these pictures, and could be seen always surrounded by the people he loved, laughing and enjoying true brotherhood.

Quinn was also a talented athlete, and played football, hockey, and baseball for Baraboo High School as well as pitched for the University of Kentucky Baseball Team and the Baraboo Home Talent League.

Quinn had a passion for working with his hands, and was trained as a welder in high school. He often spoke with pride about the home building projects he completed, and he approached even the most menial of tasks with the attitude of a craftsman.

He was known for his quick wit, his salty language, his amazing sense of humor, and his ability to inspire friendship, respect and love in just about every person he met. His life was one of great and true loving relationships, and he poured his soul into his friendship and family. He wanted to come home to Baraboo this summer because he felt the kinship of a community where he deeply felt he belonged, in tune with the nature of Wisconsins woods and streams. Quinn loved his dogs, and spent many hours enjoying his four-legged family members.

Finally, Quinn was a soldier, having enlisted in the Kentucky Army National Guard as an Indirect Fire Mortarman. Quinn completed his training last December and had been actively participating in the guard while attending school.

Quinn will be cremated and his remains placed at some of the spots he held sacred in life.

A scholarship will be set up in his name for students at Baraboo High School who have a desire to enter the skilled trades. Please send donations for the scholarship to the Community Foundation of South Central Wisconsin, PO Box 544, Baraboo, WI 53913, attn: Robyn White, in lieu of flowers or gifts.

From the Infantrymans Creed:

"For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight.

I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty.

I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever.

I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME"

Quinn and I went to highschool together and were in many classes together. He always had something nice to say and I could tell how much he loved making others laugh. There was such a glow to him and he always lit up a room. I’m so sorry for the loss of such a beautiful soul, and I know his life will be celebrated with the love and joy that he instilled with all of those he met.

Cousin Seattle , Washington

I am so very sorry to hear of your terrible loss, which is also our loss in the Linehan family. I met Quinn in Baraboo a few years ago at a tournament baseball game in which his team played against my grand nephew, Adam Feyereisen's River Falls, Wisconsin baseball team. I think he was a freshman at the time. He was such a nice and polite young man who appeared very happy to talk to us older family members. I cannot imagine what you are going through and I wish there was something I could do to help you through your grief and sorrow. I know words do not help much, but I want you to know that I am praying for you and remembering Quinn from that day. May Quinn rest in peace. I know he will always be remembered and loved.

I’ll never forget the first time I met Quinn, the summer before freshman year I was one of the first people to introduce Quinn to some of us Baraboo kids after Clayton Teasdale begged me to have him over. That decision ended up being one of the greatest I’ll ever make as I look back on the amazing memories we’ve created. Quinn has always been a shining light for our friend group, always making everyone feel welcomed and loved and I’ll never forget the big-brother love he had for my younger brother Drake. He’ll live in our hearts forever and I know he’ll be watching out for us in everything we do.

My most sincere sympathies, he will be missed! Words cannot express how much love I’m sending your family.

Our hearts go out to your family. I always worry about the impacts I have as a teacher, but I’m feeling now the impacts of great students on me. Quinn will be greatly missed!

I’m so sorry for your loss. It hurts to even write this, but each and every one of these shows how loved he was. I had known quinn through school, but soon we ended up being at the same events or hangouts as each other and got closer. He has always had a smart mouth but behind that was still so much love he gave his friends and family. Him and I would always pick on each other but we knew it was alright.
