Seeing his obituary makes it all true real now.

I’m extending condolences to Billie Jo, Buck, & all of Bill’s friends.

During the years I lived in AZ I enjoyed going to sports bars to watch NFL football. Bill & Laurel were one of the couples in our group. Bill would be rooting for the Packers, Laurel & I would be cheering on the Vikings, & three more people in our group were die-hard Bears fans! Needless to say we had alot of fun times!

Since moving back to MN I have taken four vacations down in Phoenix. The last time I saw Bill was in January of last year. (2018)

Bill was so skilled at renovating/remodeling houses including the landscaping. Also his plants, & trees were so well taken care of. He took pride in keeping the properties immaculate.

After my parents sold their winter home in Mesa, Bill helped me pack up their belongings. I could never have done it without him!

I will always remember all the dog tricks that Bill taught Dexter ❤… I will remember that I preferred not having to be a passenger when Bill was driving! … I will remember how smart he was at answering the Jeopardy questions correctly … & if I ever hear someone say “AND STUFF LIKE THAT” I will think of Bill Miller.

RIP Bill, & have fun being together again with Dexter, & Saydee, & all your salt-water fish.

Prayers to the family and close friends. I met Bill years ago and he was a very genuine and hard working man. I am truly sorry for the loss… much too soon.

Bill was a good man and his death came way too soon. We had some nice times at his home for Thanksgiving and at our home for Christmas Eve parties. One time we served kombucha and Bill referred to it as “bug pee”. We all got a big laugh out of that. And we still do whenever we think about it. Our condolences to the friends and family of Bill. May he rest in peace.
