Wayne Miller

May 15, 1929 - October 3, 2018

Wayne Otis Miller passed away on Wednesday, October 3, 2018 in Stockton, CA. He was 89. Mr. Miller was born on May 15, 1929 in Williamsport, PA to his parents, Charles Otis and Nellie Mae Miller. He graduated from Stockton High School in 1947 before serving in the Army where he was stationed in Georgia during the Korean War and made lifelong friends. After the war, he continued his education and obtained his CPA license. He married Juneve Zoe Miller in 1954. They lived in Stockton and shared a love of travel, often visiting Canada for the weekend to enjoy the sights and food. After beginning his career at accounting firm, Lyman & Keister, Wayne spent most of his career as an independent CPA. After his retirement, he dedicated his remaining time to traveling, spending time with his family and keeping up with the stock market. Always an avid sports fan, he also loved watching sports, especially college baseball and football. He especially loved cheering for his grandkids' games in person when possible.

Mr. Miller was a patient man and his easy going nature made him easy to talk with. He was well respected and well loved by all who met him. Mr. Miller's adventurous spirit meant he was always up for visiting new places and trying new foods, especially with his family or friends to accompany him.

Mr. Miller is survived by his children, Victoria Kamm, Pamela Harris and Bradley Miller; his brother, Lynn Miller; and his six grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his wife, Juneve and his daughter, Kerryn J.Z. Miller.
