Cyrillus “Cy” Edmund Miller
July 04, 1927 ‒ April 17, 2018
Cyrillus (Cy) Edmund Miller, 90, of Mansfield, passed away peacefully with family in his home on April 17, 2018. He was born in Fremont, Ohio on July 4th, 1927. He was the son of Charlie and Anna Miller.
Cy was married to Rita Ann (Schoen) Miller for 58 years until her passing in 2008. He believed strongly in the Catholic Church and proclaimed his faith by supporting his church, helping people in need and his gentlemanly way of living his life.
As a proud veteran, Cy served in the military in WWII and was truly one of the members of the Greatest Generation of Americans. Most of his working years, he was a maintenance foreman at MTD Corporation in Willard, OH and Brownsville, TN. In retirement, he worked with his hands to repair and build things in his home and gained a liking for refinishing furniture and building Adirondack chairs.
Cy and Rita, as a team would always have a home that was warm and loving for friends and family. As his family closes this generational book on a wonderful father, grandfather, and great-grandfather we can only say that this man has brought joy into the world of family and friends and represented the meaning of a true patriot & gentleman. If only we could follow in his footsteps, life would be grand.
He is survived by three children, Bill (Judy) Miller, Mary Ann (Randy) Jacobs and Greg (Amanda) Miller; Grandchildren Jeff (Heather) Miller, Jeremy (Malika) Jacobs, Holli Jacobs, Janelle (Don) Barnhart, Joshua (Christine) Miller; and 11 great-grandchildren and another on the way.
He was preceded in death by his wife Rita; parents Charlie and Anna Miller; and 4 sisters.
