Raymond "Kirk" Miller Obituary

Raymond "Kirk" Miller passed away Friday, Feb. 14, 2014, at his home in Eagle River, Alaska, after an all-too-short battle with cancer.

Kirk was born Oct. 13, 1964, in San Jose, Calif. His family moved to Billings, Mont., when he was a toddler, and he grew up in Montana and Idaho, where he first developed a love of the outdoors.

He graduated from Skyline High School in 1982 and enlisted in the Air Force in 1984. He served in the Air Force for 20 years in the area of computer system operations. He was stationed in Idaho, Germany, Montana and Alaska, which was the perfect place for a man who loved the outdoors.

He retired from the Air Force in 2004 and started his second career with the Department of Transportation Federal Aviation Administration. He was still employed by the Federal Aviation Administration at the time of his death.

Kirk loved living in Alaska and seeing all that it had to offer. He enjoyed fishing and catching salmon on the Kenai River. He also played darts and rugby and enjoyed cooking, woodworking and fly rod building.

He had a gift of telling stories and a razor-sharp wit that kept his friends and family laughing. Anyone who met Kirk would remember him, not only because he stood out among a crowd at 6 feet 10 inches tall, but because he befriended everyone he met. His heart was as big as he was tall and he will be missed by many.

He is survived by his mother, Linda (Bill) Echo; sister, Rene Miller; and nephew, Kyle Miller of Idaho Falls; father, Ralph (Sharon) Miller of Billings, Mont.; five stepbrothers; and a stepsister.

A celebration of life will be held later this year with friends and family in Idaho Falls.

Condolences may be sent to Bill and Linda Echo, 862 Raymond Drive, Idaho Falls, ID 83402.
