Obituary Condolences

William (Wally) MILLER Beloved father passed away at home on April 17, 2011, at the age of 92. Born on February 19, 1919, Wally grew up and attended school in Tacoma, Washington. A World War II veteran, Wally later co-founded with his wife, Eva Jeanne, Miller's Interiors Inc., one of the leading floor covering dealerships in Seattle. He spent his career building the family business and was very proud that the company continues to operate today under the supervision of his grandchildren. Wally enjoyed success as a Scoutmaster during the early fifties with troop 325 in Richmond Beach, Washington, where he was also instrumental in developing various athletic teams that participated throughout the Seattle area. In this way, he became known in the community as one who was committed to helping kids develop the ability to strive for excellence in all their endeavors. He continued this commitment on to eventually coach baseball at the semi-pro level through the early 1960s. Later in life, Wally and Eva Jeanne enjoyed playing golf while living in Palm Springs during the last twenty-five years until they moved back to Seattle full time, where his wife passed away in 2004. Wally was known for his personable spirit, his commitment, and friendliness to all he came in contact with. He is survived by his brother, Dr. Maynard Miller of Moscow, Idaho; son, Joe Miller and wife Judy, son Gary Miller and wife Joanne, daughter Virginia Cagle and husband Randy, fourteen grandchildren, and sixteen great-grandchildren. A private burial was held for the immediate family.
