Robert Leo Miller was born to Anton and Katherine (Wald) Miller on July 28, 1929. He grew up on a farm in Hague, ND. Bob’s first language was German and he did not learn English until he went to school, but he never lost his strong German accent.
Bob moved to Aberdeen, where he met his wife, Theresa Fischer. The couple married and made Aberdeen their home, where they raised their two children.
Bob worked many years at Dakota Sash and Door and enjoyed ushering at St. Mary’s Church. Bob was always active, social, and in the know. He was a life-long gardener and enjoyed a good garage sale bargain. You often would hear him whistling while biking, driving his scooter around town, or taking his heated golf cart to the YMCA for a workout. He was very social and enjoyed cards, bingo, bowling, dancing, and a good conversation. He and Theresa wintered in Florida and Arizona for many wonderful years. In later years, they moved to Minnesota to be close to their family. Bob was a loving caretaker of his wife and was extremely proud of his grandchildren and great grandchildren. His love for his family will endure forever.
Bob is survived by his wife of 60 years, Theresa; son, Gary (Jane); daughter, Charlene Johnson (Ross); grandchildren: Brandon (Jenni), Justin (Mirella), Briana, Kayla (Brian) and Elsie; great-granddaughters: Sydney, Eden, and Morgan; brothers: Edmund, Conrad, and Dennis; and sisters: Mary Volk and Anna Braun.
Bob was preceded in death by his parents; his brothers, Chester and John and also two infant brothers; and his sister, Alice Heier.
