William Fredrick Miller, Jr.

Mar. 21, 1926 - Feb. 20, 2021

GLEN LAKE - William Fredrick Miller, Jr., 94, of Glen Lake, slipped the grasp of Earth and entered Heaven on February 20, 2021. Born March 21, 1926, Bill was the only child of William and Mary (Gearhart) Miller of Albany.

Bill was drafted into the US Navy from Vincentian Institute in 1944, during World

War II. He was assigned to the Armed Cargo Attack Vessel USS Oglethorpe as Radioman Petty Officer Second Class, where he served honorably in the Pacific Theatre. Bill remains part of THE Greatest Generation and was proud to have served his Country.

He married Marie Luther in June 1949 and has remained happily married for nearly 72 years.

After purchasing property on Glen Lake in 1951 from his father, they raised their five children and continued to reside there until his passing. Many great memories were made there and each of us smile broadly, as we reminisce of our time together on Glen Lake.

Bill enjoyed golfing, fishing, and spent decades serving on the Board of Directors for the Glen Lake Protective Association and was affectionately referred to as the Dam Mayor for keeping the lake at the proper level.

He is survived by his loving wife Marie; and their children: Donald and Helen (Austin) and their children, Dustin Miller and Jenna Miller; Michael and Jeanette (Stepowski) Miller and their daughter and husband, Kristina (Miller) and Kyle Perkins and their son, Wyatt Perkins; Peter and Ann (Kempski) Miller; Kenneth Miller and daughter, Magnolia Miller; Kathleen (Miller) and Duane Gowen and their children Eric Gowen, Jamie Gowen, Isaiah Gowen and Elias Gowen. In addition to nieces, nephews, and cousins all cherish the memories of their father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle and cousin.

Please join us at noon on Wednesday, February 24, 2021 for his celebration of life and Mass of Christian burial at St. Michael the Archangel Church, 80 Saratoga Ave, South Glens Falls.

Family and friends may call on the family at church starting at 11 a.m. until the time of mass. Due to restrictions, facemasks are mandatory.

Burial will be in the spring in St. Mary's Cemetery, South Glens Falls.

Please send a remembrance in Bill's name to Bay Ridge Rescue Squad, 1109 Ridge Road, Queensbury.

Childhood memories are the best memories of all and all of us Tuohey´s have plenty of great memories of Uncle Bill. Memories from Edgewood Drive and memories from summers at the camp. Uncle Bill´s motto was "the door is always open" and he made sure everyone felt welcome. Rest In Peace Uncle Bill.

Bill was many things but gentleman would be at the top of his list. We worked together for a while. He could make you smile from morning to night on attitude alone. Condolances to the family.

Dear Marie and family, please accept our deepest sympathies. Bill was a wonderful neighbor and always was willing to lend a hand, along with a joke and a smile. The community of Glen Lake will sorely miss him, us included.....

To Aunt Rea and all of the family I am so sorry to hear about uncle Bill. All I can say is he was the best godfather to me that anyone could ask for. I have the fondest memories from Edgewood Drive and Glen Lake that I will cherish forever. He is now in a great place back together with my parents. I´m sure they are causing havoc Just like they all did on Edgewood. Again My thoughts and prayers goes out to all of you.
