Floyd Edward Miller

Mansfield - Floyd Edward Miller passed away on April 9, 2021 - his birthday. "Ed" wanted to make it to 94 years old and he did! Ed never met an enemy. Kind and friendly he was always smiling and happy to meet new people and see old friends. He was ready to meet Jesus face-to-face.

Ed was a lifelong resident of Mansfield and graduated from Mansfield Senior High School with the class of 1945.

Ed didn't let anything keep him from attending his three daughters, Margo H. White, Marlene K. Hamill, Karen S. Miller (husband, Gary Pritchard), or his six grandchildren; Scott (Kelly) Purvis, Michael (Lisa) Keehley, David (Ashley) Hines, Melissa (Josh) Dodge, Marcey Keehley, and Justin White (Linda Chen) events. Ed loved seeing or hearing about what activities his 11 great-grandchildren were involved in too. In addition, Ed has nieces and nephews that he loved dearly along with and his "girls" at the Mansfield Restaurant on Cook Rd. that waited on him over the years.

Ed loved playing poker and euchre with his great group of friends every week for over 50 years. He enjoyed attending several euchre groups as a member of the Sons of Herman and at Senior Centers in Mansfield and Galion, and other places around the area. In addition, Ed loved sports and coached a few softball teams over the years plus, he never gave up cheering for the Cleveland Browns.

Ed was proud to be a member of the Grand Lodge of the Free and Accepted Masons of Ohio for over 70 years. He attended Main Street United Methodist Church for many years. His work included being a milkman for Islay's and Smith Dairy for 30 years. Yes, he heard every milkman joke! He was a member of the Teamster Union 40 through his work.

Ed was preceded in death by his first wife of 48 years, Norma (Touby) Miller and his second wife of 9 years, Shirlee (Metz) Miller, and his twin sister Rose Elaine Johns.

The family would like to thank all those through Southern Care Hospice and others who lovingly cared for our father in his final weeks. You are truly appreciated.

Ed will be laid to rest in a private ceremony at the Oak Grove Memorial Park in Lexington, Ohio next to his first wife Norma. Cremation arrangements are being handled by Snyder Funeral Home in Lexington, OH.

Margo, so sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. I’ve known him since I was a little girl. He was my milkman at one time. I would run into him at V&M and we would talk. My thoughts are with you and your sisters at this sad time.

Ed was so kind. Never heard him say anything about anyone. We were happy to have been part of his Euchre family. Played cards with him for many years. Happy Heavenly birthday Ed. Happy you hit that 94 mark. You will be missed by many.
