David H. Miller passed away Nov. 19, 2020. David was born on May 31, 1944, in Wellsville, NY, moving to Shawnee, OK when he was 10 years old. He graduated Shawnee High School in 1962 after meeting the love of his life, Sandy. David and Sandy married Aug. 28, 1964, and were happily married for 56 years. David graduated from The University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Business Administration in 1966 and began a 30-year career in telecommunications. David spent 26 years with Southwestern Bell Corporation.
Following his retirement from Bell, he served as the chief officer of Sure-Tel in Oklahoma City. His later years were filled with a cattle operation, owning a liquor store, and several other business ventures. David was an active member of many civic organizations and served a five-year term on the Deer Creek School Board, and most recently, on the Deer Creek Water Board. David's military service included a four-year term in the Army National Guard. David's retirement years were filled with the excitement of farm life, feeding and chasing animals and quality time with family and friends.

I am so sorry for your loss. As you know, I worked with Dave at SWBT for several years and very much enjoyed our friendship. He was a great boss and taught me a great deal. I still remember our trip to NARUC in San Francisco over Halloween one year. We saw a lot of sites on that trip! I am sorry I will not be able to attend the services today. Our family is joining us for Thanksgiving and I do not want to do anything that may jeopardize their health due to COVID. But Jackie and I will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.
