Joseph Miller Obituary

Joseph Miller died of injuries sustained in a March 2014 mudslide in Oso, Wash. He was 47.

Joe Miller lived for many years with his dad, Reed Miller, on Steelhead Drive, where they fished together for steelhead trout in the Stillaguamish River.

Joe was a photographer who sold nature pictures at local fairs, and he worked at several other jobs, his family said. "He was a nature person. If he saw some paper on the ground, he picked it up," said his mother, Maralee Hall of Everett. "He was a very gentle, caring person. He mountain biked."

He was planning to move out soon, into an apartment in Darrington. Reed Miller was buying groceries in Arlington and thinks Joe was probably drinking coffee when mud buried the house.
