Harrison "Dub" MILLER Obituary
MILLER, Harrison "Dub"

Harrison "Dub" Miller, age 96, of Floral City, FL, died July 4, 2014 under the loving care of his family and HPH Hospice. Dub was born September 25, 1917, in Clarksburg, WV, to the late Guy and Ona (Riley) Miller. He moved to West Palm Beach with his family in 1920 and lived there until 1990, graduating from Palm Beach High School in 1939. Dub proudly served our country in the U.S. Navy during World War II and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for heroism and extraordinary achievement in aerial flight while landing a plane that was hit with enemy fire when the pilot had been wounded and was unconscious, even though as an aviation radioman second class, he had no prior experience in piloting planes. He then dove into gasoline-covered waters and tried to remove the injured pilot, persisting in his efforts until he was exhausted. After World War II, he became a letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service in West Palm Beach, FL. Dub was a lifetime member of VFW Post 2007, a 60-year member of Masonic Lodge #138; a member of the National Association of Letter Carriers for over 60 years; West Palm Beach Police Department Auxiliary Captain and was affiliated with Boy Scout Troop 13 as a Scoutmaster in West Palm Beach. Left to cherish his memory are his sons Andrew (wife Judi) Miller, West Palm Beach and James R. (wife Carol) Miller, Tallahassee, seven grandchildren; and 13 great-grandchildren. He was pre-deceased in death by his wife, Henrietta "Tots" Miller. A celebration and tribute to Dub's life will be at 3:00PM Saturday, July 19, 2014 at Chas. E. Davis Funeral Home in Inverness, FL. The family will greet friends in visitation from 2:00PM until the hour of service. Inurnment will be private at Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell. If friends so desire, memorial donations in Dub's memory are requested to HPH Hospice, Lecanto, FL in lieu of flowers.
