Terrance "Terry" F. Miller, 71, of East Peoria, passed away peacefully April 10, 2019 at OSF St. Francis Medical Center, surrounded by family and friends.

He was born July 8, 1947 in Peoria to Edward and Edith (Bierman) Miller. He married the love of his life, Carolin Eyer, wife of 49 years, on January 18, 1969 in Washington, IL. She preceded him in death on September 9, 2017. His parents; one brother, Benny; one son, Joey and a granddaughter Jenny also preceded him in death.

Terry served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War, where he received two purple hearts. He worked for Caterpillar Inc., Neal Auto Parts for 11 years and was an avid Truck Driver. His favorite past time was going to Car Shows with his most prized possession, a 1969 Dodge Cornet Superbee. His second favorite thing was spending time with his family and his beloved pets, Angel and Sasha.
