Richard Earl MillerJune 7, 1951 ~ July 1, 2019 (age 68)
Richard Earl Miller, 68 of Willow Springs went to be with the Lord on Monday, July 1, 2019 with his family by his side. He was the hardest working man on any crew he ever led. He was gentle, and kind hearted. He would do anything for someone in need even if it meant he had to go without. We will miss those beautiful blue eyes and that hug that was always waiting when you had not seen him in a while. He was the best brother to his two sisters even if they were 600 miles apart.
Richard was born June 7, 1951 in Wellsville, New York to Gordon and Isabel Miller. He graduated from Wellsville High School in 1969. On July 22, 1972 he married Mary Louise Stuck. He was a heavy equipment operator and crew leader most of his career installing natural gas lines. He loved Nascar racing, midget dirt track racing, was an avid sports fan, bowling on leagues with his wife and friends, going camping, but most of all he loved to eat good food. He enjoyed spending quality time with each of his kids and grandkids.
