I met Dan 20 years ago when we helped coach our sons football team and attended church together. He rarely wasn't smiling and always had kind words of encouragement. No job was to big and no problem unsolvable. His can do attitude always showed by doing for others first. His love for Christ showed in his servant heart. He will be missed until we see him again but loved always.

My brother Dan was a family man. Family meant everything to Dan. But first and foremost he loved his wife Kelly (it’s hard to remember when they were not a couple), his sons Tony and Tyler, his daughters-in-law Brook and Ashley and those grand babies and his God. Whenever we talked he would always brag about what a blessed man he was to have such a wonderful wonderful family. Not once complaining about his health. He was such a caring, kindhearted, loving, thoughtful, giving and understanding man. He always wanted everyone to be happy. He was always thoughtful of others. Dan was truly a very, very special man. I cannot think of anyone who met him who didn’t like him, he was just that type of person. I cannot put into words how much I wish we could have had more time together and how very, very sorry I am we didn’t. Dan I love you and will miss you more than anyone knows.

I’m sure like most, you all have family that lives fairly far away that you get to rarely see. That was certainly true for my Uncle Daniel Miller.
However even with the gaps in time we saw him Aunt Kelly Schneider Miller, Tony Miller, and Tyler they were always such positive experiences that I don’t think I’ll ever forget them.
From big breakfasts, homemade candy, and trips to North Platte, Kansas City, And Shreveport Uncle Danny always was the most kind and thoughtful Uncle.
I appreciate all the time we got to spend together and you’ll never know how much I appreciated you and Aunt Kelly consoling and supporting my brother and I at Mom’s funeral.
I love you and you will be sorely missed.
Rest In Peace

Uncle Danny was one of the kindest, funniest people around. You never saw him when he didn’t have a smile or laugh. So many memories include laughter like driving off from a gas station and him running after the car and jumping on the hood. If you were ever in need of cinnamon bears or jolly ranchers- Dan was your guy! He loved his family so very much. I will miss him dearly but boy am I glad God placed him in our lives. Now he can be with Jesus and look out over all of us and be a guiding angel. Dan give my dad a hug and ask Grandma D to make you up an enchilada. Love to you Kel, Tony and Tyler and families. He was truly a great great man. Love Brad and Shell and families.

Danny was a great role model as a father and husband. Other than his faith his family was everything to him and will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace Danny with all the loved ones who preceded you. You was a great brother-in-law.

Danny was one of a kind who lived his life to the fullest. I have too many memories to share but they all involved fun and many laughs. I’m comforted that he is at peace now and picture him reconnecting with his hunting buddies (like my dad) who went before him. Love and hugs to his family and friends.
