Pastor Bryan Anderson recalled a church skit in which Clinton J. Miller played God, dressed in a black robe and deciding people''s fate at the pound of a gavel. He said Miller played the role with compassion. It was how he lived his life, Anderson said. "He was selfless, optimistic and filled with a sense of duty to both God and his country," he said. Miller, 23, of Greenfield, Iowa, was killed by a roadside bomb Dec. 11 in Anbar province. He was assigned to Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. A 2001 high school graduate, Miller played football and wrestled. "C.J. willingly chose to put others ahead of himself," Anderson said. Before joining the Marines, Miller was an assistant wrestling coach. He showed respect for others, referring to those older than himself as "mister." Fellow coaches said students looked up to him. Anderson said Miller''s wife, Jackie, remembered her husband as patient and loving _ her best friend. They enjoyed singing karaoke and riding carousels together. Anderson said Miller''s father, Kerby J. Miller, thought of him as "the ultimate son."
