Robert J. Miller Obituary
Robert J. Miller

Belford - On the morning of December 10th, 2017, Robert J Miller, 87, passed away peacefully in Reading, Massachusetts. Robert, who mainly went by "Bob," was born in Jersey City, NJ where he met the love of his life, Patricia Ann Mangan. After a three year odyssey around America as staff sergeant in the Air Force, Bob and Pat, and their son Bobby, settled in Jersey City. For the next seven years, Bob worked by day as a clerk at Mallinkrodts, attended St. Peters at night while Pat multitasked as mother, homemaker, "Bob's life coach" and the editor for all of his papers. The next stop in the Miller voyage was Belford, New Jersey, a cornerstone of their life where they raised Michelle, Karen and Bobby, lived life to the fullest with wonderful friends, spent many hours playing golf and spending weekends at the Jersey Shore. Bob was the life of the party and could put a smile on anyone's face. He was a devout catholic, who attended church regularly and even braved a snowstorm on the eve of his death to attend his final mass and receive communion. While Bob will be missed by many, everyone should be comforted by a reassuring Irish blessing: Death leaves a heartache no one can heal; Love leaves a memory no one can steal. Surviving are his daughter Karen J Timmons; son, Robert Miller and his wife Kathy Reinold; daughter Michelle Sieminski and her husband Harald Sieminski, and grandchildren: Melissa Timmons, Allison Timmons, Paul Sieminski, Emily Sieminski and Danielle DeNufrio. Robert was preceded in death by his wife, Patricia Miller, sister, Helen Kretz, and brother Harold Miller. Private services will be held.
