Glenn David Miller Obituary

Nov 21, 2017 in Obituaries | 4 comments

Glenn David Miller, 65, passed away suddenly on November 11th, 2017 at his home in Mesa, Arizona. Glenn was truly a remarkable man, loved by many who called him son, dad, grandpa, brother, and friend.

Glenn born on August 7th 1952 in Mullens, West VA to James and Athleen Miller. His parents instilled values of honesty, loyalty, and hard-work. He spent much of his childhood in Flagstaff, AZ, fishing, hunting, and exploring the country on his motor cycle.

Shortly after high school, Glenn moved to Page, AZ where he took an apprenticeship and began his career with SRP. There he set down roots, was married, and had two boys. Glenn took every opportunity to enjoy the outdoors with his friends and family. Their outings included camping on the Kaibab, fishing on the Colorado, boating on Lake Powell, and 3-wheeling at the Corel Pink Sand Dunes.

Glenn moved to Mesa, AZ to be closer to family and finished his 42 year career with SRP. In retirement, he reignited his childhood love for hot rods with his ‘67 Stingray, competing against some of the best classic cars in the southwest.

Glenn’s true love was his grandkids, and the treasured adventures they shared at the cabin. These outings ranged from 4-wheeling to catching crawdads from snow sledding to the occasional coyote calling.

He often curled up on the couch with the kids to watch a movie where he earned his nickname “Popcorn”.

Glenn also loved his country, its history, and traditions. We have lost a true patriot. Although he will be deeply missed, we can find peace in the knowledge that life does not end with death; till we meet again.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, December 1 at 10:30 a.m. at the LDS Chapel located at 22035 E. Ocotillo Road, Queen Creek , AZ 85142. The family will greet guests at 9:30 and services will begin at 10:30 a.m.

  2. To the family of Glenn, my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. As you cope with your loss, may you find comfort in knowing that God promises to put an end to all the things that have plagued mankind for centuries including death (Revelation 21:3,4). May you find peace in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about them and bring them back again (Job 14:13,15). May these words from God’s word, the Bible give you comfort now and strong hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.

  3. We were saddened to see that Glenn had passed. We were neighbors in Happy Jack and talked to Glenn quite often over this past summer. Glenn was a joy to be around and will be sorely missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Glenn’s family in this time of grief. Jacki and Brian Feldhahn
