Wendell “Paul” Miller went to be with his Lord and Savior at 3:35pm on Sunday, August 22nd at Blanchard Valley Hospital after a short battle with Covid. Paul was born to John and Carrie (Boyer) Miller on April 30, 1948. He married the love of his life, Beverly RIsner, on June 21, 1969, she survives in Kenton. Their marriage of 52 years was a great example to many.

Surviving are 3 children; Ryan (Robin) Miller, Eric (Melody) Miller of Kenton and Carrie Miller of McGuffey, 7 grandchildren; Ellie Miller, Delaney (Jace) McGue, Kaden Miller, Dawson Miller, Cambrey Miller, Eliannah Miller and Braylen Miller, 3 siblings; Danny (Rosie) Miller, Martha (Jim) King and Marla Keller.

He was preceded in death by 7 siblings; David Miller, Ruth Meeker, Dickie Miller, Coralie Guyton, John Miller, Tom Miller and Carla Rigsby.

Paul graduated from Upper Scioto Valley High School in 1966. He went on to work at Whirlpool, Rockwell and Durez before finally retiring from Rockwell (Meritor). He also started a lawn service that he had operated for 42 years.

Paul loved muscle cars, oldies music, listening to Gaither Gospel music, watching Gunsmoke and the Andy Griffith show, and trips to Holmes County with his wife. He would daily sit at his dining room table to read his Bible and spend time in prayer. He loved his church family at Abundant Life Assembly of God where he was an elder and always looked forward to spending time with the guys at his house on Mondays for men’s fellowship. His greatest desire was always to see his friends and family come to a relationship with Jesus. Paul’s favorite things to do were spending time with his family eating meals after church on Sunday, watching his grandkids play sports and sitting on his front porch in his rocking chair.

Paul was a father-figure to many and a great friend. He will be greatly missed!
