  • Helen and family, so sorry for your loss. May God ease your pain and help you through your sorrow. Spent many fun week ends on outings (canoe trips), fond memories. Ed & Kathy Mawhorr

  • Charlie was one of the finest men I have ever met….personally and professionally. He was, without a doubt, one of the reasons Pepsi-Cola, in central Ohio, dominated the soft drink market. He never missed work and he treated the company as if he owned it….he was an excellent employee and an outstanding leader. His leadership qualities went well beyond what I see in our country today. People followed Charlie because they wanted to…. not because he wanted them to follow him. He was a very hard worker and a very fair man. Outside of work was no different….his family was his # 1 priority and he was the type of man you wanted to know and say you knew. I was very fortunate to have met Charlie and I know he will be greatly missed by all….but his time here was well spent and your family should be very proud to be part of the Charlie Miller family….

    Earth lost a great man but heaven just gained one…..
