By on October 17, 2012

Paul D. Miller, 71, of Lititz, passed away peacefully Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2012, surrounded by his loved ones.

He was the husband of Judith M. Jones Miller, with whom he celebrated 47 years of marriage this past Feb. 13.

Born in Philadelphia, he was the son of Paul B. Miller of Harleysville and the late Anne M. Adams Miller. He was also the stepson of Dorothy Miller.

During his 37-year teaching career in Warwick School District, Paul taught all grade levels and retired in 2000. A veteran of the U.S. Air Force, Paul served in the Philippines where he acquired a love of travel that continued through the rest of his life. Known best for his gentle guidance, quick wit, dry sense of humor and "favorite teacher" status, Paul loved talking with friends and strangers alike. Other interests included reading, crossword puzzles, kayaking, losing himself in his watercolors, walking on the beach and lending a helping hand to neighbors and friends. Paul was an active member of Redeemer Lutheran Church for over 40 years, having served on church council, in the senior choir, as a youth leader and co-founder of the Puppet Ministry program.

In addition to his wife, Judy, he is survived by his children: Todd D., husband of Jennifer Miller, of Locust Grove, Va.; Megan E., wife of Benjamin R. Snell, of Lancaster; his four cherished grandchildren: Sean, Lauren, Liam and Julian; and by his sister: Judith A., wife of Alan Stefano, of Elverson.

Friends will be received at Redeemer, 500 Pearl St., Lancaster, Oct. 20 from 10 to 11 a.m., with his celebration of life service to follow at 11 a.m.

The family would like to thank the staff of 8 Lime at LGH for their exceptional care and friendship.

In lieu of flowers, make contributions in Paul’s memory to the Paul D. Miller Memorial Fund at Redeemer Lutheran Church, 500 Pearl St., Lancaster, PA 17603, or to the Leukemia-Lymphoma Society of Central PA, 2405 Park Drive, Suite 100, Harrisburg, PA 17110.
