Cliff Miller was a colleague of my wife, Dr. Adelle W Ziemer at LCCC, and a faithful attendee at the monthly retirement breakfasts held in the Allentown area. Saddened to learn of his passing only 1 1/2 months after Adelle died here in Florida. Rev. Dr. Richard Ziemer.

I worked with Cliff back in the 70 - 80's. He was by far one of my favorite co-workers. He had the biggest smile and friendly personality. And was always dressed in a nice suit and tie. He told me one time that his wife picked out his suits for him! RIP Cliff ❤

To the Miller family. I was a student of Mr Millers at Allen High School black in the 60s. He was a great teacher and always knew how to get the best out of his students. Thanks to him I moved on to a career in engineering. You have my deepest sympathy
