Rolland Matthew Miller Jr. “JR,” age 56, of Glencoe, formerly of Mesquite, NV, was promoted to glory after a brief battle with kidney cancer Saturday, Aug. 22, 2015, surrounded by his family and loved ones.
He was born Aug. 23, 1958, in Minneapolis, the fourth of six children born to Rolland and Twila (Peterson) Miller.
Always known for his sense of humor, Rolland would help anyone who needed it. He raised three children alone, whom he adored and supported.
Anyone who ever met JR knew two things about him right away; that he was a proud father and grandfather, and that he was a good guy.
He will be missed dearly by his family and friends, but his spirit will live on in his children.
Rolland is survived by his three children, Rolland Matthew (Matt) Miller III, Caitlin Miller, and Karly Miller; his grandchildren, Allie Miller, Barrett Miller, Asher and Corbin Miller, and Paisley Miller; his loving companion, Caroline Gillingham; his sisters, Kathy Rumsey and Jeannine (Sadat Kamandy) Miller; brothers Bob (Peggy) Miller, and Eddie (Teresa) Miller; many nephews and nieces; and countless friends.
JR was preceded in death by his parents, Rolland and Twila Miller; brother John Miller; sister-in-law Virginia Miller; and his brother-in-law, Doug Rumsey.
Memorial services took place Saturday, Aug. 29 at 11:30 a.m. at River of Life Christian Church in Winsted.
Urn bearers were Rolland Matthew Miller III, William Matthew Miller, John Ross Miller, and Daniel Merlin Rumsey.
The Chilson Funeral Home in Winsted served the family. Condolences may be sent to www.chilsonfuneralhome.com.
