In the serene town of Coatesville, we are enveloped by a somber atmosphere as we come to terms with the passing of a luminary figure, Mr. John Franklin “Truck” Miller, who took his final bow on August 31, 2023, at Paoli Hospital. Born in the very heart of Coatesville, he was the cherished son of the late Blanche (Preston) Miller and John Miller.
John’s life was a testament to enduring love, having celebrated 63 golden years with his adored wife, Linda (Brownback) Miller. He was a proud alumnus of the Coatesville Area High School, Class of 1957, and post that, he wore the esteemed uniform of the United States Marine Corps, exemplifying courage and duty. His professional journey saw him contributing significantly to Lukens Steel of Coatesville.
With a leadership spirit, John held pivotal roles as the Vice President of Clearfield Valley View Hunt Club and was a trusted trustee at the West End Fire Company. Besides these commendable pursuits, he was an ace on the basketball court and graced many an adult softball league. Notably, he pitched a game that remains etched in perfection.
His legacy thrives through his beloved wife, his devoted son Daniel Miller, accompanied by his wife Kim from Honey Brook. His lineage proudly extends with two caring siblings: Verna Hurley, partnered with Pat from Atglen, and Ella Davis with her spouse Jack. The subsequent generations are enriched by his three grandchildren: Tad, Laura, and Tate Miller, further blossoming with four great-grandchildren: Jaxton, Waylon, Valerie, and Cameron.
The heavens welcomed him alongside his son, John Christopher Miller (2021), and two siblings: William and Joseph Miller.
In paying respect to the family’s wishes, funeral services will remain intimate and private. The responsibility of ensuring a dignified farewell has been graciously undertaken by the Wilde Funeral Home of Parkesburg. As we remember John, let’s embrace his legacy of love, service, and commitment, ensuring his memory remains eternal.
