Obituary of Joseph Miller

Miller, Joseph E.

Joseph E. Miller, 92, Saturday, 9/15/2018.   He fought the good fight and now heaven has gained a very special angel.   Joseph is survived by his wife of 72 years, Gloria; four children: Barbara, Becki, Tom and Mary Jo; twelve grandchildren, ten great grandchildren and cousins, nieces and nephews.  He is predeceased by his parents, his brother and sister and his son Peter.

The patriarch of our family, he has left us with a lasting legacy of love, laughter and values.   Joseph was a journalist, educator, counselor, avid bicycle rider, tennis player and Broadway musical enthusiast extraordinaire ! His laugh was unmistakable, his love for his family unconditional.   We have all gained something wonderful from being part of his world and now our world will feel a bit more empty without his larger than life presence but his energy and spirit will live on in all of us.

The family will not be having a memorial service at this time.  His wishes were to make Cape Cod his resting place and we will honor that in the future.  We want to thank the wonderful people at Lifetime Care Hospice and our loving extended family of caregivers in Friendship West One at Monroe Community Hospital for all of their dedication and love bestowed on our father.  In lieu of flowers the family would welcome donations to these organizations.
