Roger William Miller

September 30, 1935 — July 10, 2021

Roger W. Miller of Neenah passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on July 10, 2021. Roger was born on September 30, 1935 in Neenah to Albert and Linda (Eake) Miller.

 

Roger graduated from Shattuck High School in 1954. Upon graduation, he entered the Navy and served during the Korean war. Upon completing his service in 1959, he married the love of his life, Nancy J. Crooks on September 7, 1960. Together they enjoyed 60 wonderful years and had 3 children, Pam (Robert) Weiss, Greendale WI, David Miller, Green Bay WI and Polly Ebben, Neenah WI.

Roger was a deeply religious man who was a devoted husband and father, grandfather and great grandfather, son, uncle and friend. In his free time he loved to read the newspaper, history books and articles, car magazines and the Bible.  Sports of all kinds were on Roger’s radar and he loved to watch the Packers on TV with remote in hand!  Family camping trips, getaways at a cottage in Shawano, and in later years, 11 winters spent in Gulf Shores, AL were special times for Roger & Nancy. He was employed at Sonoco/US Mills for 39 years as a tow motor driver.

 

Roger’s wife and children survive him as do 6 grandchildren: Amanda (Jered) Kamin, Jason (Cherity) Hooyman, Cassie (Mike) DeMars, Emily and Hannah Ebben and Nicholas Miller. Further surviving him are 10 great grandchildren, his sister Ruby (Roy) Mehl, brothers-in-law Tom (Ann) Crooks and Bob (Ruth) Crooks.  Many nieces, nephews and good friends complete the circle of those who loved and will miss Roger.

 

Preceding Roger in death are his parents, parents in law Vincent & Dorothy Crooks, and brothers Charles, Albert and David Miller.

 

A memorial service will be held on Saturday August 7, 2021 at 11:00 am at Peace Lutheran Church, 1228 S Park Avenue, Neenah WI 54956.  Friends may greet the family from 10:00am until the service time.

Roger, we were blessed with a wonderful life together. Until we meet again. -Nancy
