John was a positive person who made his country, his community and his family better. He viewed the world with broad perspective, seeing answers and angles others never considered. He was not intimidated by challenges and always thought big. His motto was to “deal in solutions and not problems.”

John attended St. Peter’s Lutheran School and Webb High School. He graduated from Stout State University in 1967 with a bachelor’s degree in industrial technology. He later did graduate work in secondary school administration through the University of Southern California.

John entered the U.S. Army in July 1967. After initial training, he was posted to the 7th Infantry Division in South Korea during the Pueblo incident.

John joined the Wisconsin National Guard in 1976 and in the ensuing years served in many leadership and command positions. He completed U.S. Army War College in 1997 and retired at the rank of colonel after 31 years of military service.

As owner of Muchow Builders for more than 35 years, John designed, built and remodeled many homes and light commercial properties. His first design-and-build project was Reedsburg Cleaners. Muchow Builders transformed the former Huntley Hotel in Reedsburg into Cornerstone, a residential and retail mixed-use project that helped revive downtown Reedsburg. He also designed and built his family’s home in the Frank Lloyd Wright style. After retirement, John continued to follow his passion for creativity by completing several unique and ambitious woodworking projects despite the challenges of his illness.

John was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church; the VFW; the U.S. Army War College Foundation and a past member of Reedsburg Jaycees. He served as a board member of the Reedsburg Area Medical Center, Seth Peterson Cottage Foundation, and Reedsburg School Board, serving seven years as board president.
