George Muller was born and raised in Prague, Czechoslovakia, to Margaret Estin Muller and Ernest Muller.
George was the oldest of two sons. His brother Frank, who predeased him, was two years his junior.
George spent his first 7 years living in Prague. His family moved to London before Hitler invaded Czechoslovakia and stayed there until his teens when his family immigrated to New York.
George attended Tabor Academy boarding school in Massachusetts and then went on to graduate from Williams College. He thrived in many sports but tennis was his passion as he played for the Williams tennis team. Growing up in Europe he could speak six languages although he only spoke English to his children.
Basic training in the Army — driving a tank was the impetus for George moving from the East to the West Coast.
In 1954 he met the love of his life, Virginia Madeliene de Surville, on a double date. He knew immediately she was the one and courted and married her in 4 months. They spent 67 years together and had 3 daughters. Ginny passed just six months ago and a broken heart was very evident over this time for him.
George worked in the computer industry. Starting out at IBM selling mainframes. He sold computers for companies such as Friden, Vydek and Xerox. He owned Shamrock Computer Supply in his later years.
George’s love of all sports was with him all his life. He played tennis from a young age until his 80s and was a member of the Junior Davis Cup team.
If he was not on the tennis court, he was playing golf, cricket or squash. He loved the races and had a box at Santa Anita for many years. Loved to watch football and soccer or any team sport for that matter!
George is survived by his daughters and sons-in-law, Victoria Muller and Jon Howe, Robin Muller Banks and the late Bill Banks, and Mary Muller Wagner and John Wagner, as well as 6 grandchildren (Parker, Mallory, Alexander, Thomas, Madeleine and Graham). He loved watching his grandchildren grow up and become adults. He definitely left many memories and funny moments we all will keep with us.
