Mr. George Frank Miller, age 95 of Salisbury, peacefully passed away in the early hours of Thursday, May 16, 2019 at Novant/Kaiser Hospice House in Salisbury after a brief illness. Frank was born in Rowan County on December 21, 1923 to the last Albert Mathias Miller and Sophie Graham Miller. He was also preceded in death by his wife of 60 years, Rachel Propst Miller in 2010, by his siblings, Albert, Jack and James Miller, Catherine Miller Hedrick and four great-grandchildren. Mr. Miller served his country in World War II as a Corporal in the United States Army where his service carried him through the “European Theatre”.
After his service, he spent his career in the China Grove Roller Mills, but most importantly as both a dairy and cattle farmer. He truly loved farming and was a hardworking and God loving man who lived his life to serve. Frank was a lifetime member of Grace Lutheran Church where over many years he served in many capacities and until his illness; he had never missed more than on Sunday in a row from attending Church. He had a love for gardening and you could find him at the end of his driveway offering his produce for sale in the community. Frank also had a great love for baseball, especially the New York Yankees. He was well known amongst his family for his love of homemade ice cream….he could be found making a batch almost weekly to enjoy either for himself or with the family during the summer months. He was truly a family man and loved them dearly.
Those left to cherish his memory are his sons, David Miller (Brenda) and Danny Ray Miller of Salisbury and daughter, Becky Miller Gorman (Ronnie) of China Grove and his brother, Joe Miller of Salisbury. He also leaves behind his grandchildren, Cody Miller, Tara Sams (Ron), Michael Miller (Kristi), Ashley Hornbeak (Trey) and Bradley Gorman (Kim) along with seven great-grandchildren.
