December 28, 1948 – August 11, 2019
Roger Morris Miller of Birmingham passed away on Sunday morning, the 11th of August 2019, at the age of 70. He was born in Rising Fawn, Georgia the first of three sons to Morris and Viola Ione Miller. Roger spent an active childhood on Lookout Mountain, where he played quarterback for his high school, and was even voted "Mr. Chattanooga Valley High School." He was a naval veteran who served in Vietnam as aviation boatsman's mate on the USS Kitty Hawk. Roger became a hardworking business executive & entrepreneur, leading several companies across the country as both a CFO and CEO. His proudest accomplishment, however, was his family. He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Kay Miller; son, Colten Miller (Dana); daughter, McKenzie Johnson (Carlo); brother, Steve Miller (Judy); and by the lights of his life, his two grandchildren, Charlotte Miller and Ethan Johnson. He worked to give them the world, and he will be deeply missed. Friends are cordially invited to a gathering and reception with the family from five o'clock in the evening until seven o'clock in the evening on Thursday, the 15th of August, at Ridout's Valley Chapel located at 1800 Oxmoor Road in Homewood.

I have known Roger and Kay for about 47 years. I could tell so many stories about Roger but the main thing is he loved his family. He always provided for his family and loved and supported, encouraged and directed them. He was always welcoming to Kay's parents who visited them often. It was obvious how much he cared for them; which we know is not always the case with in-laws. I know he made me feel welcome when I visited; and at times offered brotherly advise. Kay, Colten and McKenzie, you have so many wonderful memories to hold on to; and my prayer is that God will give you peace during this time. I Love All of You, Denise Hughes
