Douglas Dwight Miller, 78 years old, passed away peacefully at 4:00 am, Saturday, June 17, 2023, in his residence.
On July 9, 1944, he was born in Plymouth, Indiana to Kenneth Robert Miller and Wilmetta (Vance) Miller. Doug went to the 8th grade only to get a job delivering newspapers to help his family. Doug found the love of his life, or rather she found him when she saw him for the first time walking down the street saying, “I’m gonna marry that guy”. Doug and Betty Sears were married on May 26, 1962, and went on to have five girls.
Doug worked for Bendix for four years and Delmonte for twenty-four years as a Supervisor and Safety Coordinator, where he retired early.
Doug took his family on many vacations, short trips to Brown County and lots of camping and weekend trips to Center Lake in Warsaw with Betty and his girls and with his favorite 70’s music blaring on the radio! Doug also enjoyed trips on his motorcycle with his wife and with his buddies from work. He loved working on cars, always had one in the garage!
Doug’s life was so full of many adventures and quite a few obstacles that he and his family overcame with Gods love and guidance. Doug was a man of God who read his Bible every morning until he couldn’t anymore.
He is survived by his wife, Betty Miller, and his daughters; Christine Renee (Peter) Popp, Plymouth Christina Ann Miller, Plymouth, Sheila Jo (Mark) Warner, Argos and Sarah Jean Miller, Plymouth; several grandchildren and great grandchildren.
