To whom much is given, much is expected; a local man has lived by that adage his entire life.
Joseph P. Mueller, 90, a veteran of the Vietnam War and Director and corporate member of the Marie Stella Kenedy Memorial Foundation, has dedicated his life to public service. He got a "thank you" from the community, Tuesday afternoon.
That's when a placard bearing his name was unveiled outside the Mother Teresa Shelter's Multi-Purpose Activity & Therapeutic Center.
His daughter, Michelle Moffitt, told KRIS 6 News although her dad was unable to attend the unveiling, he loves working for the community.
"He's very humbled...that they want to recognize him in this way, but at the same time he's very delighted because of his passion for working and helping the Mother Teresa Shelter," explained Moffit.
The building that bears Mueller's name will be used to provide homeless people with services like exercise classes, counseling and other forms of therapy.
