Obituary for Eugene Miller

Eugene Miller

Mr. Eugene Miller, age 65, of Vermontville, MI passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, September 15th, 2018.
Eugene was born in Hale, MI on October 21, 1952, the son of the late Dale and Charlotte (Howell) Miller.
He attended Hastings High School, graduating in 1971. Eugene continued his education through an Apprenticeship/Journeyman program where he studied tool & die.

Eugene had a passion for building, designing, and engineering. In 1989, he founded Meritt Tool & Die in Vermontville, MI, which originally started in the attic of his home. Eugene's mind was always inventing a better way to perform a task, or a new piece of machinery to make a job more efficient for the user. Eugene's shop was an extension of his family; over the years all of his children spent time working with him. His legacy for innovation has been passed on to his two sons.

He was the husband of Rita (Taylor) Miller. The couple was married in the Nashville Church of the Nazarene on August 17, 1974. They began their lives together in the Nashville and Hastings areas, before moving to the Vermontville area where they raised their family. True to his innovative nature, Eugene not only built his own home, working countless nights and weekends, but at the request of his wife, he built it with no hallways, Eugene had an unwavering faith and he loved sharing the gospel any chance he could. Over the years he participated in several mission projects, including traveling to the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina to lend a hand wherever he was needed. He had begun writing a book documenting all of the miracles he himself had been blessed with, as well as miracles he had witnessed in those close to him.

Eugene is survived by his beloved wife Rita, his daughter Tina Williams, two sons: Tim (Kasey) Miller and Tom (Samantha) Miller, his sister Karen Miller, nine brothers: Gerald (Gloria) Miller, Lloyd (Edna) Miller, Keith (Sharon) Miller, Dean (Carrie) Miller, Harold (Connie) Miller, Ward Miller, Howard (Darlene) Miller, Paul (Rose) Miller, Bryan Miller, and grandchildren Gracie & Caleb Williams, Asher Miller, Morgan Miller, and another grandchild on the way.

He was preceded in death by his brothers Leon Miller and Earl Miller, sister Jeanette Miller, and infant sister Faith Miller
