All of whom still believe he is Santa Claus. Most importantly an amazing husband. In an era where women stayed at home, this man empowered his wife to go to school, work a full time job, and most importantly just go for it. His life is proof that good guys do finish first. So raise a glass to Chic. He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Martha Jane (McKinney) Muetzel, sons, Michael Rex (Alice Ann) Muetzel of Atlanta, GA and Douglas Wayne (Linda Ann) Muetzel of Mars, daughter, Susan Jane Elsass of White Oak, grandchildren, Melissa (Patrick) Harper, Abbey (Jared) Bain, Amanda (Brad) Beggs, Matthew (Mallory) Muetzel, Joshua (Anastasia) Elsass and Jeremiah Elsass, great-grandchildren, Zac and Quinn Harper, Myla, Seth, Judah, and Shilot Beggs, Matteo and Marco Muetzel and Lucy Bain, and nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his son-in-law, Jan Elsass. There is no visitation. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at a later date. Arrangements are by Gilbert Funeral Home and Crematory, Inc., 1638 Lincoln Way, White Oak. (412) 672-6322 Troy J. Gilbert, Director. Condolences may be made at Gilbertfuneralhomeandcrematory.com
