Roger Allen Miller

December 13, 1946 — February 21, 2024

Mocksville

Mr. Roger Allen Miller, 77, passed away Wednesday, February 21, 2024.  Mr. Miller was born in Kansas City, Missouri, December 13, 1946 to the late Clifton Jones “Chic” Miller and Wilma Marie Krogman Miller. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Danny Miller. Mr. Miller was a member of the last graduating class of Griffith High School in 1965. In his younger years, he excelled showing Arabian horses, especially his beloved Zilfin, and he found brief, local fame fox hunting with his friend, Larry Lambeth. Roger served in the United States Navy as a member of the Seabees for two tours in Vietnam. Returning from his tours of duty, Roger worked for McLean Trucking, after which he went to work with his father and eventually took the reins at CJ Miller and Son Painting and Decorating, which he owned and operated from 1980-2016. Mr. Miller was a member of Farmington Baptist Church, where he faithfully served as a teacher and deacon. In addition to devotedly serving the Lord, Roger was the faithful backbone of his family who always felt his love and support.  Outside of these central loves of his life, working his farm while tending his black angus cows was the great joy of his life. He is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Ellen Letchworth Miller; children: Jeff (Carmen) Miller, Allison (Aaron) Fender, Ben (Michelle) Miller; grandchildren:  Jordan (Jordan) Hendricks, Alex (Ethan) Sullivan, Owen Fender, Cole Fender, Audrey Miller, Ty Miller, Colt Miller; great-grandchildren: Gabriel Hendricks, Maggie Hendricks, Chase Hendricks, Jonah Sullivan, and a sweet Sullivan on the way; sister: Krista (Joe) Helton; daughter-in-law, Tracy Miller; and numerous nieces and nephews. The family will receive friends at Farmington Baptist Church, 1835 Farmington Road, Mocksville on Sunday, March 3, 2024 from 1:00 PM until 2:00 PM; a funeral service will follow the visitation at 2:00 PM with Pastor Phillip Brande officiating. Burial will follow in the Farmington Community Cemetery. The family would like to give a special thank you to Clemmons Village I Memory Care for the kindness and concern they showed each of us and especially to Roger. Memorial donations may be made to Farmington Baptist Church. Gentry Family Funeral Service of Yadkinville is serving the Miller family.
