Donald R. Miller

May 15, 1928 ‒ September 16, 2016

Delaware, Ohio


Donald R. Miller, 88, of Delaware, passed away at Grady Memorial Hospital on Friday, September 16, 2016.

He was born May 15, 1928 in Park Ridge, Illinois to the late Gustave and Sylvia (Claussen) Miller. Don proudly served his Country prior to the Korean Conflict as a veteran of the US Army.

Don worked at Allstate Insurance Company in their computer and electronic engineering departments, and as a representative in services at GE.

He married the former Margaret (Claussen) in 1960, whom he met while at Allstate.  To Margaret he was “My Don” and together they shared a true romance caring for each other’s needs.  They made a home, traveled, and lived many places together with Florida being their favorite.  After 55 years Margaret passed away earlier this year on April 4th, triumphantly they are together once again.

Don was an avid ham radio operator with countless hours with the microphone in hand under the call letters: KB8SIA.  He spent many years volunteering at the Delaware County 911 Center and serving as a communication safety liaison at numerous community events.  He was also a stickler for proper radio protocol.

Handy in every way, he could fix anything and did so without asking.  Although set in his ways of the old school, in addition to his happy and loving characteristics, Don will be remembered as a wonderful husband.

He is survived by his daughters Judith Greenwald of Phoenix, AZ, Jo Ann (Larry) Wickline of Sunbury, and Jeanne (Robert) Losacco of Parkridge, IL; four grandchildren: Michael, Christy, Laurie, and Stevie; four great grandchildren: Cody, Billy, Madison, and Zoey; and one great-great grandchild:Eden; brother: Ken Miller, and many nieces and nephews.

He was also preceded in death by a great-grandchild McKenzie and brothers Glen and Russell.

Services will be held at a later date and friends may contact the family directly for those details. Arrangements entrusted to the Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center.

Memorial contributions can be made to the American Cancer Society.

  • Sorry for your loss. I would like to share Jesus promise of John 5:28,29 “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.”
