Dear Gail and Larry's Family:
I was a young 24 year old man in 1976 and a player with Denver Broncos when I decided to call Stevenson Toyota in Denver to see if they were interested in establishing a relationship where they would give me a Toyota car to drive during the season in exchage for appearances and use of some of my game tickets, an arrangement many players had with area dealers. They transfered my call to their young GM and he was open to the idea and asked me to come in and talk with him. The young GM was Larry Miller. We became good friends over the next 2 years. In 1977-78, our team became known as the Denver Crush, we were the AFC Champions, and we played in Superbowl XII. Larry loved the exciment as much as the players did. One day he called and told me to bring my temporary car and he exchanged it with an burnt orange Toyota sports car (just for the fun of being part of the orange mania). I remember Larry being very energetic, hard working and we enjoyed our relationship. After we met, he entered into the same relationship with another player or two. I remember Larry inviting me to his home to have dinner with Gail and his young family. When he learned that I had an interest in commercial real estate, he introduced me to a few people he knew to help me learn about the business. In 1979, I left professional football and moved away from Denver to start the next phase of my life and we lost touch with each other over time.

One day in approximately 1995, while driving to lunch near my office in Morro Bay, CA, I noticed a license plate with the dealer label - "Larry Miller, Salt Lake City..." I smiled and wondered if that could be the same Larry Miller that I knew in Denver 18 years earlier. For the fun of it, I decided to call that dealership in Salt Lake City. I believe they transferred my telephone call to something like "Larry Miller Productions" and I smiled, wondering what new worlds he had ventured into. I left a message and later recieved a call from Larry. I smiled, laughed and congratulated him as our conversation revealed that he went on to acquire and own numerous auto dealerships and he was also the owner of the Utah Jazz. I should have known.

Today is Easter Sunday, April 8, 2012 and I woke up with the thought of going on line to find and read Larry's obituary and I'm glad that I found this "Guest Book" - I hope that Gail or her children someday read my story of Larry. I knew him when he was a young GM for a single dealership and he was tirelessly working his way up. He enriched my life. Larry, this morning, I'm thinking of you and your family. You were some kind of man - hard working and passionate. You certainly did your part to make this world a better place. Thank you.

I want to thank the Miller family for allowing me to know such a great and generous man. I felt very privileged to know Larry and his family for the time I did. I will never forget the opportunities he gave me to learn new things and further my education.

To the family of Larry Miller,
Larry has a great legacy he's left behind to his family and the community. He brought many things to our community that may not otherwise have come to pass if Larry hadn't lived out his ideas and dreams. Although he was a man of great wealth, he never flaunted it particularly by the way he dressed. It just wasn't his style to stand out in a crowd but to blend in with everyone. I respect him greatly for that. It was refreshing to see a person in his position use his talents and money to invest in the community he lived in as well as mankind in general.
I admired him greatly for the interst he had in furthering education in our state by providing educational opportunities for teachers and students. My daughter was a recipient of The Foundation of Liberty Seminar and she raves about her experience to this day and is very grateful that he would do this for the teachers.
Larry, thank you for not only showing Utah but the world what an exemplary man you were and for making this world a better place to live in and providing the different types of entertainment for all to enjoy by making dreams come true.
