He was born April 6, 1947 in New Kensington to Roy D Miller, Sr. and Isabella (Walmsley) Miller Cunningham. He was a life-long resident of Springdale and 1965 graduate of Springdale High School. Mr. Miller was a retired 25-year employee of PPG Coating & Resins of Springdale and worked in the paint department. He was of Presbyterian faith, enjoyed bowling and spending time with his family. He loved playing Santa each year for the past 5+ year for Springdale Borough holiday celebrations. He colored daily (as his family called it) and was a perfectionist when it came to using his sharpies and stencils. Seeing his Dynamo Country signs in the neighbor windows brought huge smiles to his face. He also loved spoiling his grand-dogs with treats as many times per day as he could sneak them in. He was a life member of the Springdale VFW. Mr. Miller served in the US Navy from 1965 to 1971. He served with Navy Seal Team 2 as a River Patrol Boat captain as a First-Class Petty Officer Gunnersmate during the Vietnam war.
