Robert Lee Miller
Robert Lee Miller (Bob) lived life joyously for 74 years and after a long and courageous battle with numerous health challenges, he passed from this life. He went to meet his Lord on November 21, 2013 at UF Shands Hospital in Jacksonville with his devoted wife Joyce and daughter Missy by his side. Born December 1, 1939 in Spencer, West Virginia, he lived in his beloved home state until 1967 when he moved to Melbourne to begin a 25 year career with RCA as a Computer Operator. After retiring from RCA he began a second career in civil service at Patrick Air Force Base. He then started a part-time job that turned into a 22 year labor of love at Sam's Club in West Melbourne. His warm smile and willing way were the perfect characteristics for his job as a Greeter. Bob also proudly served in the U.S. Army National Guard for eight years. Playing golf was his favorite pastime but his true outdoor passion was his Goldwing Trike motorcycle.
He is survived by his loving wife of 20 years, Joyce Ann Miller, his children; Allan Miller (Gina), Melissa (Missy) Miller, Robert (Bobby) Miller, grandchildren; Ryan, Bryan, Amber Miller, his precious great grandson, Andrew Phillip Harris and his sister Jane.
Bob knew no strangers and never had an unkind word for anyone. Warm, kind and sensitive, he maintained an incredibly positive attitude and displayed remarkable strength and perseverance while facing countless physical trials. He was an inspiration to many. His contagious laugh and heartwarming smile will be deeply missed.
A Celebration of Life will be held Sunday, December 1, 2013 at the
Front Street Civic Center, 4pm.
