Raymond Julius Miller (Bud), age 80 passed away in The Woodlands on February 18th, 2015. Bud passed away peacefully surrounded by family, knowing he was loved and deeply appreciated. At the time of his passing, Bud and his wife Geri had been married for 57 years.

Bud was born June 3, 1934, in Grand Rapids, MI. Growing up, he enjoyed sports and scouting. He became a decorated Eagle Scout and lettered in baseball, basketball and football. Bud's athletic passion was basketball and was recruited to play at Alma College, where he was affectionately known as "Captain Bud". It was at Alma College where he met the love of his life, Geraldine Detloff, as he slyly took her contact information and from there, the romance bloomed. Bud graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Business and immediately began a successful career with Westinghouse. He was drafted into the Army where he served in a classified role located in Germany. Returning to the states after his Military service, Bud was recruited by his college coach to serve as an administrator and basketball coach at Northwood University in Midland, MI. Northwood University moved the family around the country, but they ultimately landed in TX. Bud left Northwood University to build a successful Real Estate firm.

After moving to FL with Geri, Bud's hobbies included working as a Marshall at the golf course as well as restoring golf carts. This hobby continued when he moved back to TX. You could catch him daily taking their dog Misty on golf cart rides as he greeted friends and neighbors.

Bud is survived by his wife, Geri; son Mike Miller his wife, Jennifer and their two children Shawn and Cody; son Randy Miller his wife, Martha and their two children Erin and Kali; daughter Cindy Jury her husband Gavin and their two children Ian and Emma.

The family would like to thank everyone for their prayers, love and care as we grieve for our deep loss, yet rejoice for Bud and his homecoming with the Lord. We are thankful that Jesus has brought victory over death and offers the promise eternal life in Him. Jesus is indeed the Resurrection and the Life, and all who put their trust in Him will live forever. At his last breath his wife Geri said "Go on ahead and we will catch up with you." We know that because of what Jesus has done we will eventually catch up with Bud and have one big family reunion!
