Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Phyllis and Family,
Alan & I send you our sincere sympathy. We respected & enjoyed Gene a great deal, as did our parents, and pretty much everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. I thoroughly enjoyed some chats with Gene while he coffeed at HyVee, but not nearly as often as I wish I had! Such a genuine & sincere & friendly man. He loved people & they could feel it. His interest in people was confirmed when I read that he personally reached out to people with hand written cards...so many...so consistently. What a credit & reflection of who he was. I pray that God will give you strength & peace in the days ahead. This Christmas may you focus on our savior & Gene's return home in glory, rather than his absence from your home & our town.

To all the Muehlenthaler family,
I am so sad to here of Gene's passing. He was a wonderful man that was respected in Ankeny for many years. I also have memories of younger years when Gene, Jack and myself would travel to car shows!!! Always a class act!!!! He will be dearly missed!!!

So sorry to hear of your father passing away. I always remember him as a kind and soft spoken man. I always enjoyed visiting with him at church. May God give you peace in this time of sorrow
