John was a life-long friend of my family and we came to think of & love him as another brother. He would do anything for a friend in need, including giving you the shirt off his back or his last dollar! I have so many fond memories of John that I can't choose just one. He has helped me or my family out numerous times & I could spend hours talking about him but for the best stories and memories, Buck is the one to tell those as they were close as kids & became closer throughout the years, spending hours on end together.
From what I've seen, he was a great dad, grandpa, husband, brother, son, uncle, friend, etc. He loved his family very deeply.
John you will be greatly missed by all who knew you.
To Natalie, Ashlie & Mandy:
I am very sorry for your loss as there is none greater than losing a parent. Y'all are in my thoughts and prayers. Stay strong.

Alisa & families: Oh my, I’m so sorry to hear about your brother’s recent passing, what a shock as he was so young! I’ve not seen y’all for many years but I pray Jesus comforts you & yours & gives each of you ‘peace within’.🙏 I’ve always respected & loved your dear grandma, your sweet mother, as well as you & your brother all these years. May God continue to bless you always. ✝️
With sincere deepest sympathy,

I worked with John Miller. He was a kind hearted man that would give you the shirt off his back. He was a good co worker and a good friend. Rest easy buddy.
