Ronald Curtis Miller

March 16, 1959January 2, 2021

To our wonderful Kingsport friends and family,

We regret to inform you today of the passing of an incredible member of our community, Ron Miller, owner of CompuWorld Systems, known for his dedication to his church and his family and, most especially, his loving service to everyone he met.

Ron was born on March 16, 1959 in Louisiana to the late Earley M. and Rosalie Walker Miller. He grew up in Richmond, VA and attended Virginia Tech where he met his wife Cheryl at the Wesley Foundation. Ron loved to travel with his family and had a special fondness for national parks as well as for mission trips with Mafair UMC.

Ron was a wonderful husband and proud father, brother, uncle, and, most recently, grandpa. His passing leaves behind his wife Cheryl Cuskey Miller, daughters Beth Miller Ball and her husband Jonathan; Rachel Tisdale, her husband Justin, and their daughters Anna and Chloe; and Emily Miller, his brother Carl Miller and wife Debbie, his sister Chris Trent and husband George, and almost too many nieces and nephews to count.

In lieu of flowers, please make a memorial contribution to Mafair United Methodist Church, 1409 E Center Street, Kingsport, TN 37664.

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” Matthew 25:40

I am so sorry to hear of Ron’s passing. I fondly remember our days and nights working together to get CompuWorld Systems started. Ron did a great job of building the business and building respect in the community. I will pray for you and your family.

Cheryl, Beth, Rachel and Emily -
I so wish I could have been there physically with you today, but you are all in my mind and heart. Ron is one of the best men I have ever known and we are so lucky to have been able to call him family. The legacy he leaves is all of you, and Jonathan and Justin and those beautiful little girls. Cuskey Northwest is here for you and sending love and prayers across the country. Distance means nothing to the heart - whether physical or spiritual, we are all still together.
Love to all of you, Carrie

Cheryl, Beth, Rachel and Emily - Doris and I want to offer our sincere condolences to each of you on Ron's untimely passing. He was a true saint of God as evidenced by his many contributions to the Kingdom. When we first learned of Ron's illness, we began praying fervently for your family. We will continue to do so during the difficult days ahead.

Cheryl, Michele and I were so shocked and saddened to hear about Ron. He was such a great guy who loved and served the Lord. He patiently spent so much time training me to be Treasurer those many years ago. Michele remembers scrubbing taters and chopping onions with him for Missions’ fundraisers. You and the family are in our prayers.

The Carl Miller family in Richmond has lost a dear brother and uncle. We are at a loss for words to say how much he will be missed. Being a fellow Hokie was great but being a brother in Christ was the greatest. Our prayers for grace, mercy, and peace are with you Cheryl, Beth, Rachel and Emily.

I was able to meet Ron professionally and through our mutual involvement with a tight-knit bicycling group. Ron's computer business came to my rescue several times when our i-pad and laptop needed fixing. He had been referred to me by church friends who claimed he had the skill and know-how to fix anything. He was able to resurrect my technical items!
Ron was focused on benefitting others. It was also clear how deeply he valued Cheryl and their daughters. He will be missed and always highly regarded as a man of integrity whose commitment to making life better for those in his circle of influence never wavered.
When reading this bible verse, Ron comes to mind:
Proverbs 10:7
"The memory of the righteous is a blessing..."
