Harold Edward Miller, 92, passed away on January 6, 2021. He was born May 14, 1928, in Mathis, Texas, to Mae and Theo Miller. After proudly serving his country in the U.S, Army, where he traveled abroad, he returned to work for Champlin Petroleum Company for over 30 years until his retirement while ranching with his brother, Preston, for over 10 years.
Harold had a big heart, a hardy laugh, and was a generous man, liked and loved by all he came across. His knowledge of current events always kept him and everyone else engaged in a good conversation. Texas history was his favorite. He was also an avid hunter that took him on many trips to Colorado. This gentle, loving, caring, and wonderful man has left a permanent mark etched on our hearts. He will be forever remembered and supremely missed.
Thank you to all the family, friends, and health care professionals for their care and comfort in the last couple of months of his life. We are sincerely grateful. In grief, there is comfort in the lessons and gifts he gave us throughout his time on earth. "Joyous is the celebration in the Lords' house when one so loved is welcomed home."
He is preceded in death by his parents, one brother Preston Miller and his first wife, Gladys Miller.
He is survived by his sister, Faye McKaughn (Dub); two brothers, Eddie Miller (Evelyn) and Al Miller (Jackie); his loving wife Maria C. Miller; his daughter Diana Colwell; her children, Kimberly Mowery (Jim), their children Claire, Gavin, Elizabeth, and Ryan; Jim Colwell (Julie), their children Nakia and Lily, and Maria’s children; Cynthia Gatica, Lavon Grantham Jr. (Helen), Daniel Grantham (Kelly), and Julie Colwell, as well as numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.
