Robert (Bob) Lee Miller, 65 - August 24, 2011
Robert “Bob” Lee Miller, 65, of North Carolina, a former Nebraska native, died Wednesday, Aug. 24, 2011.
A memorial service will take place at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 31, at Sedge Garden United Methodist Church at Kernersville, NC.
A native of Nebraska, Miller served with the U.S. Navy where he met his wife, Mickey Miller, in San Diego, CA, and there began their family. Twenty-two years later the couple moved to North Carolina with USAirways.
He possessed many passions in life including God, his family, charity, traveling, skiing, canoeing, and especially helping youth, according to family members.
Miller was an active member of the Kernersville community as an adult leader with Boy Scout Troop 944 and initiated the Venture Crew at Sedge Garden United Methodist Church. He also served as a youth counselor at SGUMC for seven years.
He loved the youth of the church and participated in many mission trips, earning the nickname “Chainsaw Bob,” as he had to make sure everyone knew how to use a chainsaw safely. He also volunteered with the Kids Cafe program at the First Baptist Church, transporting young children to tutoring services and meals. He truly loved kids and did his best to show them that love and share his knowledge with all of them, said family members.
Survivors include: his wife of 42 years, Mickey Miller; three sons and a daughter—Colby, Cameron (Stephanie), Reed and Leslie; a grandson, Paul; a sister and brother—Jean (Robert) Flint of Arnold and Tim (Kerri) Miller of Gothenburg; numerous other relatives and friends.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to SGUMC Youth at: 794 Sedge Garden Rd., Kernersville, NC 27284.
