David Miller loved golf and “played golf every day that ends in Y!” He was an outdoorsman, a pilot, and a wonderful dancer. But most importantly, he loved his family! He loved his friends! He loved his pets! Those around him, always knew how much he cared for them. He lived a straight forward and authentic life. One marked with generosity and truth. His life has touched us deeply and his memory will always be treasured.
