Carleton G. Miller 97, Cubs farm team player, manufacturer’s representative
Carleton G. Miller, 97, of Lancaster, passed away peacefully Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2012 in the Glen at Willow Valley Retirement Community, where he resided for the past 20 years.
Born in Chicago and living the majority of his life in the Philadelphia area, he was the son of the late Carleton H. and Violet (Gusterine) Mueller, and the husband of the late Mary (Johnston) Miller, to whom he was married 71 years. She passed away in February 2011. The family was originally from from the Lancaster area and had friends in Lititz.
Carleton was employed for 43 years as a manufacturer’s representative for the Warren Featherbone Company, retiring in 1983. He was a minor league ball player, playing shortstop for the Chicago Cubs farm team in the Triple I League and a chess master who especially loved to play chess by mail. He was a gifted magician who loved to entertain his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren with his numerous sleight-of-hand tricks. Carleton attended the Chicago Art Institute, utilizing his talents at the Warren Featherbone Co. He spent much of his free time volunteering for different organizations but also devoted time to being a baseball coach. Though he himself had poor eyesight, he spent many hours assisting blind golfers with their game on the golf course. Of the Quaker faith, he was a member of the Society of Friends at Gwynedd Meeting in Montgomery County.
He is survived by a son: James C., husband of Susan Miller, of Sumneytown; two daughters: Carolyn Bell, of Thousand Oaks, Calif.; and Louise A. Miller, of Albuquerque, N.M.; seven grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.
A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
Memorial contributions in Carleton’s memory may be made to Gwynedd Friends Meeting, P.O. Box 142, Gwynedd, PA 19436.
