Tony Kamburis Millerakis left this world and his loved ones too soon on Thursday, January 7th. He was a beloved father, nephew, cousin and friend. He is preceded in death by his Grandparents, Tony and Irene Kamburis; mother, Anna; father, Peter Miller and Uncles John and Charlie. He is survived by his loving daughters Nicole and Sarah Taylor, Aunt Maria Kamburis, his beloved cat, Willy and aunts, uncles and cousins from the Kamburis family and Miller family from VA and PA. Tony was a graduate from Lee High class of ’82 and Auburn University where he earned a degree in Building Science. As a life-long resident of Montgomery, AL, he started his career at CH2M Hill and moved to Montgomery Water Works completing over 25 years as Sr. Construction Utility Inspector. He was a man of character, integrity and faith, a life-long member of the Greek Orthodox Church and member of AHEPA organization. Tony had an insatiable curiosity to understand and master his interests which varied in everything from building model airplanes, riding motor bikes, refurbishing antique cars and playing all-star baseball  in his youth. He continued with hunting, fishing, boating and photography as he aged. He was interested in most any outdoor activity and shared his passion with his daughters, family and friends but time spent with them was what mattered most.  He poured time and love into his relationships, always stopped to speak and share a kind word and let people know how much they meant to him. He had an infectious smile and was kind, thoughtful, gentle, loving, witty, and engaging. I imagine if Tony were asked one word that described himself it would be “grateful.”  He never let an opportunity pass to tell you how appreciative he was for a loving family, friendships, mentors, kindness shared and any home-cooked meal(and sweet tea) .... nothing was too small a gesture for him. However, we who had the good fortune to know Tony are the ones who will be forever grateful! Arrangements feature: visitation at Leak Memory Chapel, Friday, Jan. 15 from 4-6 p.m., Family Only funeral service at 11:30 a.m.on Saturday, Jan 16 (Livestreamed through Leak Memory Chapel's Facebook page) followed by a Public Graveside at Greenwood Cemetery.

There are people who make this world a better place for having lived and for being here among us all. Tony was such a person, always with a smile and a firm handshake. He was a person who was always concerned about your problems and would never mention his own troubles. I also know he was a hard worker and was conscientious about doing things right, no matter what the task. Tony, thank you for being a friend, there will be so many who will miss you.

Our world has lost another one of the truly great guys. My condolences go out to Tony's daughters and family. I never saw him without a smile on his face and either a humorous quip or a word of encouragement to those around him! We will miss you Tony, Rest in Peace, Brother..

Tony was the sweetest , most kindest person and never met a stranger . I have known Tony since he was a little boy I worked with his mother Anna at the State and we became good friends . Anna adored Tony and he seemed to have adopted the same feelings he had for his girls they were everything to him . Tony will be missed by so many of his friends, family and children he certainly left a positive impression on everybody he came in contact with . Tony cherished his Greek family most all his Uncle Charlie . Prayers and condolences sent to his family and his girls.

I already miss our conversations everyday buddy. I parked across from Publix and just watched deer with binoculars and thought about all of our good times. I remember as a young teenager watching for that champagne Chevrolet Z-71 to come rolling down the road so I could ride to the river with you at the hunting club. Scoot and I love you buddy. Heaven definitely gained one of my childhood heroes.

tony was one of my very best friends who i met when we both were very young i was working at an old school automotive shop which he took a liking because of love for cars & trucks he was very picky about his vehicles I had to remind him when I was working on his vehicle to step aside while I repaired his vehicle he constantly cleaned wherever I was making a repair i will miss him dearly we talked on a weekly basis he was one of my biggest fans when I came to the water works there is a place in heaven for a man of his caliber I offer my sympathy for his family

This was a man of deep compassion, loved by everyone who met him. For me many years ago cant remember exactly when. I could tell, my first impression wow this is a truly genuine man and the sad thing is there is not enough people like him who holds that trait!! Can't say enough about just how wonderful of a person he actually was. I am so happy that God put him in my life!!
