Default Obituary/service info

This is David's son Dixon again. We've finalized funeral arrangements and I wanted to share here as several people have asked.

There will be two services. The first will be on Monday, Dec 30th in Oneida, NY at Campbell-Dean Funeral Home (2-4PM visitation, 5PM service). The second will be a graveside service on Saturday, Jan 4th at 12PM in Americus, GA. Additional details are posted at the online obituary links provided below, which also include options for leaving remarks, sending flowers or donating to one of two charities in Dad's name (Disabled American Veterans or V Foundation for Cancer Research).


Feel free to contact me at [email protected] or 425-919-4970.

BLOSSVALE >> David L. Miller, 69, of Herder Road, passed away peacefully in the comfort of his home on Christmas day, after a long illness.
Born in Rome, N.Y. on Jan. 2, 1944, he was a son of Leo A. and Mary Mullroney Miller. A resident of the area since 2007, moving from Ellicott City, Md. after his wife's death and formerly of Americus, Ga., David was a graduate of Vernon-Verona-Sherrill Central School, Class of 1962. He married Elizabeth Dixon at Fort Benning, Ga. on March 27, 1971. His beloved Beth passed away on March 31, 2006.
David was a small business owner in Columbia, Md. prior to his retirement. He was a veteran of the United States Army, serving from 1966-1973 including two tours in Vietnam as an armored cavalry commander. David earned the rank of Captain and was awarded two Purple Hearts, three Bronze Stars and one Silver Star. He was an admired combat leader, and in recent years reconnected with his band of brother comrades and received great joy in sharing stories with them and attending reunions throughout the country. David leaves a great military service legacy, even for those who serve after him.
He was a member of the Fish Creek Atlantic Salmon Club, was a state certified bow hunting instructor in Maryland and belonged to several hunting and fishing clubs in the area. David was an avid outdoorsman and was active on several hunting and fishing informational websites where he formed many friendships and mentored the next generation. He was inspirational to others and had a wide influence. David was a humble and caring man.
Surviving are one son and daughter-in-law, Dixon and Vanessa Miller of Kirkland, Wash.; two brothers and sisters-in-law, Arnold and Carol Miller of Boonville and Paul and Diane Miller of Blossvale; brother-in-law, Don VanVliet of Ohio; his wife Beth's family, Sheila and James Grubbs of Tennessee and Janis and Ray Baldwin of Georgia; several nieces and nephews and his much loved granddogs, Suzie and Tanner. He was predeceased by a brother, Bernard Miller and a sister, Mildred VanVliet, both in 2011.
Funeral services will be held 5 p.m. Monday, Dec. 30 at the Campbell-Dean Funeral Home, Inc., 260 Main St., Oneida. Friends may call at the funeral home on Monday from 3-5 p.m., prior to the funeral service. Interment will be made in Sunset Memorial Gardens in Americus, Ga. Contributions, in David's memory, may be made to The V Foundation for Cancer Research, 106 Towerview Court, Cary, N.C. 27513 or to the Disabled American Veterans, 344 W. Genesee St., Syracuse, N.Y. 13200. Envelopes may be obtained at the funeral home.

I can't add much more to what others have said. Just an incredible human being. A true legend and will be greatly missed by many. He was truly one of a kind. We've never met, but spoke several times. We developed a strong bond through these forums. I'll miss talking sports with him (even Duke vs. UNC). If I could be a tenth of what david was and stood for I would consider my life a great success. There will never be another non-moderator. RIP Mr. Miller

I will miss David a whole lot.
When I found out, all I could do is get choked up.
He is one of my favorites.
He is a good friend.
