Larry Miller Obituary

Larry Miller, 58, died of injuries sustained in a March 2014 mudslide in Oso, Wash.

Larry and Sandy Miller were slowly moving into a grand home they had been building near a bend in the Stillaguamish River. They had added a guest house along the water for friends and family. The couple ran their own roofing company, Seattle Roof Advisor, where Larry Miller, 58, was a broker and Sandy, 64, did the bookkeeping. Active members of Northshore Christian Church, they counseled engaged couples and married couples struggling to hold it together.

Larry Miller has been confirmed dead. Sandy Miller is still missing.

On the morning of the mudslide, Ron DeQuillettes, an electrical contractor who also did blacktop installation work, was to come to the house to give an estimate for a new driveway. Greg Gorsuch, a friend of all three, introduced them to one another at the Seattle Home Show in February.

He wrote in an email: "I imagine the three of them, Ron, Larry and Sandy all standing out in the front of the house facing the river and the beautiful mountains on the other side while reviewing the possibilities."
