Richard “Dick” Joseph Miller, 96, left this life to be with Jesus, his Savior and Lord on February 21, 2019. Born on March 31, 1922 to Clyde and Mary Miller of Fort Wayne, he graduated from Central Catholic High School in 1940. He served in the U.S. Navy from 1942 to 1946, until the end of WWII. During his service he became a certified electrician and also met his future wife, Charlene Hauber, whom he faithfully loved for 71 years until her death in July, 2017.

Dick worked in Fort Wayne as an electrical contractor, always an entrepreneur and was the owner of L & M Electric until he was 80, after which he volunteered for 12 years at St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store. He did electrical work in many buildings throughout Fort Wayne. Golf and bowling were his favorite pastimes, having shot several hole-in-ones and bowled a 300! Dick loved to “jimmy-rig” anything, as well as being a creative inventor.

Dick’s remaining family are his 4 children, Diane Law of Elkhart, IN; Rick Miller of Anaheim, CA; Cheryl (Paul) Offerle; Janet (Eldon) Claassen of Fort Wayne; 8 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. Everyone in his family knew he loved them deeply. He was preceded in death by his parents and 8 siblings: Don, Earl, Glen, Bob, Ed and Gene Miller, and sisters, Bernice Fenker and Virginia Sealover.
