Memories Timeline


  1. Doyle was a wonderful friend and colleague at SCSC back in the 1960s and 70s I kept in touch with him until several years ago and we were always very good friends my blessings to the family – Kent Holliday

  2. Mr. Muller was one of the best and sincerely great people that I had the pleasure to be around! An amazing teacher and gentle soul! Blessings and condolences to his family!

  3. I am deeply sorry to hear of Mr. Muller’s passing. He was my Vocal teacher at the college and he always had a smile on his face. He will be missed by his family and those that were close to him. When I did my recital he sat there and just smiled, when I sang The National Anthem at my graduation….once again he sat there and smiled. He came to the party after and realized he knew the Rosales side of the family and he felt quite at home. I’ll treasure the picture we took together after my recital and I will miss him dearly. Prayers to his family✝️

  4. Sincerest condolences to the Muller family.
    Sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
    God Bless!

  5. A delightful and gentle man with a song or a musical story. I can still see him smiling and chatting in the corridors of the Art/Music Building at CSU Pueblo. He occasionally broke into song—followed by a smile and a laugh. A good man and wonderful musician.

  6. At USC in 1975, Prof Muller started the Estudiantina, a group that performed Mexican songs and dances. Songs such as “Sabor a mí” and “Obsesión”. Mr Muller transcribed the melody and chords of these songs as performed by a visiting musical group from Puebla, Mexico, Pueblo’s sister city. I will miss this kind and generous teacher.

  7. Doyle truly touched so many lives in the very best way through his gifted vocal/musical career. To his beloved family, may you find peace and comfort in his memory. I am very sorry for your loss and send you my deepest condolences.

  8. Doyle was my teacher, colleague & friend. I have never met a more considerate, compassionate & loving person. We shared many beautiful moments making music together. I have the highest respect & appreciation for his talents & blessings in my life. I feel so blessed & grateful to have known him.

    • I can only agree with Michael’s sentiments regarding Doyle. I knew him at FUMC and subsequently at SCSC. He was a warm, intelligent, gentle and wise man who freely shared his love and knowledge of music. My deep condolences to his family and friends.

  9. My sincere condolences to the family. Many memories of wonderful times of dinners, music, deep conversations. Doyle’s contribution to the musical genre is to be deeply appreciated. May happy memories lessen the grief.
