GIRARD, Ohio – Michael K. Miller, 54, passed away Thursday, December 29, 2016, at UPMC Presbyterian in Pittsburgh.
Michael was born January 18, 1962, in Suffolk County, New York, a son of George Miller and Susan Guadalupe and moved to this area three years ago.
Mike was a graduate of Division Avenue High School in New York and served in the U.S. Marine Corps.
A sandblaster by trade, Mike worked several jobs throughout his adult life.
An admitted “adrenaline junkie”, he loved to skydive and he liked to live life on the edge. A man who’s motto was “don’t sweat the small stuff”, Mike loved life and was a very funny guy who loved to make others laugh and he enjoyed his family very much.
Mike leaves his daughter, Erica (Jonathan) Gilbert of Girard; his son, Christopher Miller of Tallahassee, Florida; three grandchildren, Xavier, Hunter and Lucy; his mother, Susan; a brother, Christopher (Joanna) Miller of California; two sisters, Kathy Miller of Oklahoma and Susie Miller of New York and several nieces and nephews.
Per Mike’s request, there will be no calling hours. A private memorial service will be held at a later date.
Mike’s family requests that anyone wishing to make a memorial contribution, do so in Mike’s name to the Wounded Warrior Project through the “donate” page at woundedwarriorproject.org.
