He was born on November 4, 1928, to Albert and Zola Miller. Cecil grew up in Gary, Indiana.

He was also an insurance agent with Aid Association for Lutheran’s for many years.

Mr. Miller was a proud veteran of the US Air Force. Cecil was a longtime active member of Fairlawn Lutheran Church.

Cecil also enjoyed gardening and watching Purdue football and the Cleveland Indians.

Cecil is survived by his son Peter (Lisa) Miller, his grandchildren: Jesse and Dylan Kostecka, Abby (Erik) Ellis, Joshua and Nicole Miller, as well as his great-granddaughter Laurel Ellis.

A special thanks to the staff of Concordia at Sumner. There are too many of you who touched our lives to list. We thank you for the loving care you showed our parents.
