Vernon Ray Miller Obituary
Vernon Ray Miller
Was born in Cloudy, OK on November 21, 1931 to Fletcher and Grace Miller. He was raised by his Aunt and Uncle on their farm in Portales, New Mexico. He moved to San Bernardino, Ca. when he was a teenager and served in the National Guard while in high school. Vernon was drafted into the U.S. Army at the age of 18 and proudly served our country for 2 years in Japan and Korea during the Korean War. When his military service was complete, he came home to San Bernardino where he met the love of his life, Joan Brown. They were happily married for 61 years. They were blessed with three children, Carolyn (Paul), Sharon (Buddy), and Chris (Melissa). 12 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren. Vernon is also survived by his sister Doris, half-brothers Fletcher Jr., L.D., Lester, and many nieces and nephews. Vernon worked for the Sun Telegram for 41 years. He was a member of Sterling Ave. Baptist Church, where he served as a Deacon. Later he attended and became a member of Bryant St. Baptist and then Immanuel Baptist. Our Savior and Lord took him home on April 22, 2014 at his home in Calimesa, where he lived for 46 years. We will all miss his kindness, generosity, perseverance, and endless hope and love. But we have the assurance in Jesus Christ that we will be with him again one day.
Graveside services will be at Riverside National Cemetery May 5, 2014 at 9:45 am.
A Celebration of his life immediately following at Immanuel Baptist Church in Highland, CA.
