ALLEGANY - John L. Miller, 66, of 4960 Route 417, passed away Tuesday (July 10, 2018) at Olean General Hospital, after a lengthy illness.

Born Sept. 15, 1951, in Olean, he was the son of Walter F. and Mildred Milgate Miller. In 1989, he met Paula Robertson, and on Aug. 21, 1993, they were married in Allegany.

John joined the U.S. Navy in 1969, and served in the Vietnam War, until his honorable discharge in 1970.

He worked for the former Marra Bros. Motor Co. Inc., in Olean, as a mechanic for 17 years.

He was an avid collector of items, especially smoking pipes and unique watches. He had a model car collection and he enjoyed fishing.

Recently he became a member of the Allegany American Legion Post 892.

His family was a priority with him and he treasured the company of his wife, children and grandchildren. He lovingly referred to his son John's wife, Miranda, as his "favorite daughter-in-law."

In addition to his wife Paula, he is survived by five sons, John L. (Miranda) Miller II, Joshua L. Miller and Jessy L. Miller, all of Medina, Shane A. Miller of Olean and Aaron R. (Ashley) Robertson of Biloxi, Miss.; 13 grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; two sisters, Midge (Tim) Works of Warren, Pa. and Barbie (Nate) Starling of Apopka, Fla.; one brother, Walt E. Miller of Sanford, Fla.; three step-siblings, Frank McAdoo, Brenda McAdoo and Charlotte McAdoo; and many nieces and nephews.
