Felix “Frank” Miller, a devoted father, husband, proud grandfather and friend to many, died unexpectedly on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 at Marion General Hospital at the age of 73.

Frank was born on May 7, 1943 in Columbus to the late Felix Miller and Alice (Kinney) Martin. A graduate of Marion Franklin High School in 1961, he served in the US Air Force where he learned to work on C133 aircraft. He continued his passion for fixing things after his service and furthered his education at DeVry Institute.  Frank retired from Anheuser Busch after 27 years as an electrician with the maintenance department.

He loved to tinker and help others with their home projects. Frank had the gift of gab as an extreme conversationalist and was a wonderful teller of stories. He loved spending time with his family and bragging on his grand kids. He enjoyed scenic drives and traveling with his wife Edna of 46 years. Frank could always be found listening to classic country music and at Wednesday night bingo at the VFW Post 2505. He played a mean game of corn hole and in his younger years bowled and played horse shoes.

Frank never met a stranger and was always willing to lend a helping hand, he was also known for his hard working ways and love of family.

He is survived by his wife, Edna (Stepp); his children, Frank Dwayne (Beth) Miller, Owen David (Amanda) Miller, Tammy (Jock) Williams, his 3 grandchildren: Reese, Blake, and Piper, half-brother Terry Martin, and half-sister Pam Martin.

  • Frank was such a great guy, probably the friendliest person you could ever meet. He had a heart of gold and did anything for anyone. My deepest sympathies to the Millers during this unimaginable time. My heart and prayers are with you all.

  • I’m so sorry Edny, Dwayne , Owen and Tammy and family. It’s awful hard I know I been there. Frank isn’t around to greet you every day but he’s still there. Take all the best you can from all that you’ve lived, learned from, love and happiness and keep that close to your heart and he will remain with you until you meet again. I am sad that I did not have the chance to get to know him better than I did.

  • Uncle Frank was one of the finest men I have ever had the privilege to know. There was NEVER a time that I called and said Uncle Frank I need help, that he said no.he would say when do you need me there. But he did that for anyone. The only thing I know to say is today the world lost a good,good man. He will be missed.

  • I have so many memories of Uncle Frank. Where do I start? Aunt Edna and Uncle Frank used to live right beside us in Mann’s Trailer Park when I was in elementary school. I was over there constantly. It was like a second home to me. When mom and dad were working, Elisa and got off the school bus and went to their house. Later on in life, I babysat their kids. I played cards with Aunt Edna while Uncle Frank was at work. I went camping and he was there. I went to bingo and he was there. I had get togethers at my house and he was there. We went camping and he was there. These everyday things, I took for granted. I will miss you Uncle Frank and I will keep you in my heart forever.

  • I met Frank when I delivered barley malt to the Budweiser brewery in Columbus. Frank gave me a private tour of the brewery that few people were able to get. Frank was a very friendly man.
    My condolences to all of Frank’s family.
