Robert Donald Miller

Robert Donald Miller, age 79, passed away Saturday, July 25, 2020, at OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital. He was born March 5, 1941, in Ashland, Ohio, one of six children of the late Donald and Esther (McCrea) Miller.

He learned the value of teamwork and the rewards of hard work early in his life. He retired from Shelly & Sands (formerly Mansfield Asphalt) after many years of service. A quiet man, Robert enjoyed bird watching and was always tinkering with something. He was a member of Clay Memorial Lutheran Church.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Carol Ann (Maurer) Miller on January 26, 2009; a sister, Ann Miller; and two brothers, Mike and Jim Miller.
