He had many enjoyments but some of his favorites were spending time with his family/friends, hunting, fishing, or relaxing with Sarah Reed & Linda Steward at their Ranch Bar A in Pleasonton, Texas.  

He is survived by his loving wife Debra Miller of 47 years, son Michael and Jennifer Miller and daughter Shay and Chris Rhame and special friend Mary Welch.  But most importantly his Greatest Blessings that called him Papaw were his 2 grand-daughters Mindy Shay Miller and Ashley Rhame.  He loved them dearly and lived every moment for them.  They were his world, his everything!

Pallbearers will be Randy Dickson, Tony Lott, Donnie Powers, Vernon Lee, David Tarrant, Jared Weakley, Mike Richardson.

The overabundance of love he had for his grand-daughters was so known and he wanted nothing more than to support them in all they did so in lieu of flowers he would want you to help support their passions.  Contributions can be made to Infinity Volleyball Club 823 Willingham Rd, Whitehouse, TX 75791 or ETCA Archery Club ATTN: Mike Richardson 2448 Roy Rd, Tyler, TX 75707.
