Miller Jr., Henry - Somerville  
Henry Stuckert (Rusty) Miller, Jr., Somerville, MA, and Ft. Washington, PA, died suddenly in Presbyterian Hospital, Philadelphia, on June 7th, 2016, of acute cardiac arrest, at age 64. Born in Anaheim, CA, on February 29, 1952, while his father, Colonel Henry Miller, Sr. was on assignment as a Marine pilot in the Korean War, Rusty grew up in Ambler and Ft. Washington, PA. He attended Chestnut Hill Academy and spent his junior year in Rennes, France, in a program known as School Year Abroad. He then spent his senior year at Exeter Academy. He graduated as a member of the Harvard class of 1973, magna cum laude, majoring in religion and literature. He worked in publishing for many years, culminating in a positon as a manuscript editor at the New England Journal of Medicine. Throughout his life he embraced several interests and causes, many of which were inspired by his mother, Martha S. Miller. As an AIDS activist in the 80s and 90s, he worked tirelessly to help address the spiritual needs of people infected and affected with HIV with his partner at the time Phil Nightingale in a program they developed with the Episcopal Diocese of MA known as the Ecumenical Task Force on AIDS. This involvement in turn inspired his mother to support AIDS research programs at the Wistar Institute in Philadelphia. Following in his mothers footsteps, he embraced a great love for the Morris Arboretum in Philadelphia; and he was instrumental in assisting his mother in creating the Summerhill Preserve at the family farm in Chester County, PA, with Natural Lands Trust. An avid gardener and people person, he brought life and love to all he met and zealously worked to create and inspire a love of gardens and nature in all he knew. Rusty was also a devotee of classical music and spent many summers attending the Marlboro Music Festival in VT along with other classical venues in the Boston area throughout the year. He is survived by his partner and devoted and loving husband of 19 years Ken Nimblett, his beloved mother in law Barbara Nimblett of Winthrop, his loving aunt Louise Stengel, and many cousins in both the Miller and Stengel families. Dear friends abound in both Massachusetts and Pennsylvania. Memorial gatherings will take place in the Boston area and at the Morris Arboretum in Philadelphia sometime in the fall. Contributions in Rustys memory may be made to the New England Wild Flower Society, Garden in the Woods, 180 Hemenway Road, Framingham, MA 01701 or Marlboro Music, PO Box K, Marlboro, VT 05344. The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul. Alfred Austin, The Garden That I Love 1894. English Poet. 1835-1913. Rest in peace in the gardens you loved, my dear Rusty.
