Dillon Mueller

Dillon was only 16 years old when he made the decision to become an organ donor. “We didn’t know he registered,” said his mother, Angel. Dillon provided the Gift of Sight to two recipients, along with being a tissue donor.

Angel stated, “…he was a stunt man in the making. He started riding a four-wheeler at the ripe old age of three. Dillon raced dirt bikes from the time he was only six years old; in motor-cross and “hare scrambles.” He was a daredevil with an awesome personality.”

Dillon was the youngest of three boys, raised on a sesquicentennial farm. He would have been the seventh generation working on the dairy farm. Dillon was an Eagle Scout and an officer of the FFA. Dillon was a beloved member of his community in Mishicot, and as a tribute to him, his bikes, trophies, and paintings were displayed at the high school where his wake was held with over 1,054 people in attendance.

The Mueller Family expresses a very special thank you to the entire staff of the Aurora Bay Care Medical Center for the love and special care extended to Dillon and his family before his death from an allergic reaction to a bee sting. The family advocates for organ, tissue, and eye donation.
