Obituary of Paul L. Miller

Paul L. Miller, 94, of Apple Valley Drive, Peru, passed away peacefully on Friday, November 22, 2019, at the UVM-Health Network, CVPH, Plattsburgh, with his loving family by his side.

Paul was born in Upstate NY on April 4, 1925, the son of the late Jacob and Adina (Werner) Miller.

He married Paula Pust in 1951, and together they raised three children. Paula died in 1990. In 1993, Paul married Evelyn Jackman. They spent 26 years in love and devotion, until Paul's passing.

Paul spent many of his years as a farmer, first growing up on his parents' farm in Warren, NY, which he and his brother Warner later operated. Subsequently, he lived in Cherry Valley, NY, farmed again along with other occupations, including operating a greenhouse, and selling and installing wood stoves and boilers. For the last 25 years, Paul spent many fulfilling days in the Foster Grandparent program - most recently at Momot Elementary School in Plattsburgh.

Paul, or "Bob" as he was known by family members, was a devoted and loving husband and father, creating lasting childhood memories for his children, especially during their time on their Cherry Valley farm. He was a kind, caring man who easily made friends. He possessed a strong faith in God.

Left to cherish the memory of Paul is his wife Evelyn Miller, his three children and their spouses: Mary Tefft (Richard), Christopher Miller (Penny), and Mark Miller (Karen). He leaves behind several grand and great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

In addition to his parents and first wife, Paul was predeceased by his nine siblings: five brothers, Jacob, John, William, Edward, and Martin "Warner" Miller, and four sisters, Leslie Stone, Adina Gill, Myrtle VanSchaick, and Elizabeth Chapman.

Relatives and friends are invited to call on Saturday, December 7, 2019, from 2 to 4 PM at the Hamilton Funeral Home, 294 Mannix Road, Peru. A brief service will be held at 3:30 PM in the Hamilton Funeral Home Chapel with son-in-law, Rick Tefft, officiating.

A heartfelt thank you is given to the ICU staff at UVM/CVPH, who, with sensitivity, helped Paul and his family with his exit from mortality.
