Kenneth ‘Ken’ Miller, 73


Kenneth “Ken” Miller, 73, of Millsboro, Del., and formerly of Overlea, Md., passed away on Tuesday Aug. 20, 2019. He was a loving husband and father of two children. He was born March 16, 1946, in Baltimore, Md., to Leon and Bertha Miller.

Miller graduated from City College in Baltimore and worked for Hauswald Bakery for many years, but worked for himself the majority of his career, as a home painter for Ken Miller’s Painting. On May 11, 1966, he and Judy Miller were married. They raised two children, Denise and Steve.

All who knew Miller knew that he worked most of the time, but he very much enjoyed his work as a painter and being self-employed. When not working at his career, he loved to work in the back yard in his vegetable garden. He also enjoyed sitting on the front porch with friends and neighbors, drinking a few beers and listing to his favorite music on those warm summer nights. He enjoyed traveling with Judy driving up and down the coast, spending many weeks on Sanibel Island, Fla., and, later in life, many weeks in Provincetown on Cape Cod.

Miller was preceded in death by his father, Leon; his mother, Bertha; and his sister, Audrey. He is survived by his wife Judy; two children, Denise and her spouse, Chuck, and Steve and his spouse, David; his brothers, Mike, Charlie and his spouse, Karen, and David and his spouse, Linda; and his grandchildren, Amanda and Justin.

A celebration of life will be held in the near future, and the details will be announced. In lieu of flowers, the family said memorial donations would be appreciated at an organization that supported Miller throughout his illness: Tunnell Cancer Center; 18947 John J. Williams Hwy., Ste. 101; Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971.
