E. Paul Miller Obituary
E. Paul Miller, 68, of Inkom passed away unexpectedly on Jan. 23, 2018.  
Born Aug. 5, 1949 in Pocatello, Idaho to Steve Miller and Mable Mae Miller, Paul spent his life living and working on the Miller family ranch in the Buckskin area north of Inkom, where his grandfather A.P. Norris homesteaded.
He developed a lifelong love of horses, cattle and hard work at an early age beside his father, mother, and siblings.  
Paul attended school in Marsh Valley and graduated in 1967. During his time there he excelled in FFA and was an accomplished Varsity wrestler.
He had a reputation of being dirty rotten tough and was one of the most talented wrestlers in the State. These were lifelong passions that he passed down to his children and grandchildren.  
Following graduation Paul joined the Army National Guard and continued to build his legacy on the family ranch. In 1981, he married Paula Rosa and together they raised three children.  
He didn't say much … but when he did, you made sure to listen! His wealth of knowledge, gained from his vast life experiences, made him a respected member of the agricultural community. He especially enjoyed sharing his ideas and wisdom, and we cherish what we learned from him.  
He was very passionate about horses and cattle but nothing warmed his heart like his family. Paul was so proud of each of his children and grandchildren, and he loved supporting them in their many activities.  
Paul was preceded in death by his parents and his older brother Pete (Chris). 
Paul is survived by his children: Cody (Danielle), Adam (Jamie), Stephanie (Zack); their mother Paula; close family friend and favorite ranch hand Allie Bohus; his grandchildren: Macarty Lynn, McKinley Mae, Riggin Adam, and Kolter Martill; his sisters: Ana Marie (Barry) Sorensen, and Tacia (Nick) Tsakrios; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.  
He was our vet, farrier, trainer, mechanic, food critic, coach, mentor, and most importantly our hero. He is deeply loved and greatly missed.  
Funeral services will be conducted at Downard Funeral Home, 241 North Garfield Street Pocatello on Tuesday, Jan. 30 at 11 a.m. Immediately following the funeral Paul will be buried in a private ceremony that will be conducted at the Buckskin Cemetery.
Following the graveside service the family will greet friends and tell stories at a Celebration of Life, which will be held at Guthrie's Arena in Inkom.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made at the Bank of Commerce under Cody Miller/Donation savings account, or by viewing the obituary online at http://www.downardfuneralhome.com with proceeds going toward local youth groups in which Paul was involved.
