James W. Miller
February 02, 1937 ‒ February 06, 2018
Mount Gilead, Ohio
James W. Miller went to be with the Lord Tuesday morning, February 6, 2018 in his home. He was 81.
Born February 2, 1937 in Bethlehem, West Virginia to parents James & Julia (Rose) Miller. After his family moved to Ohio he attended Crestline High School and joined the workforce, by working for the Railroad, then the Buick Garage, and then GM for 34 years until retiring.
The best way to describe Jim is always with a cup coffee, food buffet on holidays, stories to tell and a hug to give. The love he carried for his family and grandchildren is indescribable; he cherished time with each and every one and was so proud of them all.
In spare time, he took pleasure in traveling all over the US and Ukraine and was always planning the next trip. Jim also enjoyed mowing, loved his tractors and maintaining his country farm, of which he was very proud. He was a long time member and very active in Woodville Grace Brethren Church.
He is survived by his loving wife of 34 years Evelyn Miller; children James Michael (Kathleen) Miller, Laura (Jim) Duckworth, Tawnya (Michael) Smith, Cindy (Jeff) Leedy, and Julie (Gregory) Miller Antoon; grandchildren Sandra (Craig) Pelfrey, Nathan (Amy) Miller, James (Cody) Miller, Andrew James (Jacqueline) Smith, Kristen Leedy, Daniel Leedy, and Michaela Antoon; 10 great grandchildren; brother Frank Miller; and many nieces, nephews, and dear friends.
In addition to his parents, Jim was preceded in death by second wife Sharon McDevitt Miller.
A memorial service in Jim’s honor will take place at a later date in Woodville Grace Brethren Church. His family hopes that you will hold him in your heart as you remember him in your own special way.
Contributions in Jim’s memory may be made to Woodville Grace Brethren Church, 580 Woodville Rd, Mansfield, Ohio.
