Charles Leonard Miller, of Noblesville, passed away peacefully at home on February 12, 2021. Chuck was born in Akron, Ohio on May 22, 1935 to the late Charles and Elsie (Ladner) Miller. Elsie died of TB six months after his birth and his father married his new mother, the late Cecilmae (Gilligan), a few years later. He graduated from Spencer High School in 1953 and joined the Marine Corp. After an honorable discharge, Chuck used the G.I. Bill to obtain his bachelor’s degree from Akron University.

While in college, Chuck met and married the love of his life Katherine (Barr). Together for nearly 60 years, they raised three children: Michele (Mike), Craig (Brenda), and Sharon. Chuck is also survived by four grandchildren (Danielle, Logan, Charles, and Austin) and four siblings (Bruce, Dick, Kathy, and Debbie.) His brother Jay predeceased him. As the oldest, Chuck looked out for his siblings and they affectionately called him “Buzz” – the sound that came out when one tried to say brother. After a long career as the financial manager, he retired from Firestone/Bridgestone in the late 90’s. Chuck loved sports (Go Bucks! O H I O) and could often be heard yelling encouragement to his children, random players, and the officials from the stands or at the tv when at home. He was a golf enthusiast and played many prestigious golf courses highlighted by playing Pebble Beach with his son Craig in a father/son tournament. Always, Chuck maintained his sense of humor and great love for his friends, family, and wife – using his iPad to order her two dozen Valentine’s roses that were delivered the day before his passing.

A memorial service will be held in the spring at Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery.

Kathy I just wanted tell how sorry I am about Chuck’s passing I knew Chuck for some 35 years working with him and playing many rounds of golf. It’s was also fun just hanging out with Chuck.
I can honestly say he was one of two of my very best friends that I cared for deeply. He was kind, respectful and always thinking of others. Their is no better friend that I could ask for. We had many talks while working on how to solve all the coming problems.
I know he gone, I will never forget him and I look forward playing another round of golf with him and I know when that day come we’ll have no aches and pain and we will both break par
Rest In Peace Chuck.
Your dear friend Gary.

Alot of my childhood memories are in that home on walnut way.When Craig,Sharon,and I were getting in trouble by Mrs.Miller he had a way of solving the problems.
My parents worked alot at the time.Mr.Miller took the time to teach me the basics of sports and how to dive at the clubhouse in south harbor.
He is the reason I did track, basketball, and cheerleading when we moved to kentucky.
I was Left handed he made me feel special to use his golf putter.Which I know now works with either hand.
To me as a child he was a giant.
A giant walk
A giant voice
A giant smile
A giant life
He will always be Mr.Miller to me.A man I highly respected, and he did make a giant impact .
