John George Muckle Jr., age 86, passed away on December 8, 2018. He was the husband of the late Marilyn (McCarthy) Muckle. They were married on May 19, 1956 and welcomed seven children into their family which they raised in Prospect.

I can not imagine the shock you all must feel over the passing of your father. Mike and I have wonderful memories of teasing your father and playing many rounds of golf with him. Michael, our son, was treated like a superstar every Halloween when your father knew who he was. All the years he took or dragged people to AA, how many people and families did he give an opportunity for them to have a better life. I had my own special relationship with your father which I will cherish. Please accept our condolences and know he will be missed. With Love and Hugs, Mike, Julie and Michael.
