Keith Miller

Private services for immediate family will be held for Keith William Miller.

Mr. Miller was born Feb. 25, 1923 to Albert and Melba Miller, in Minneapolis, Kan. He served in United States Army during World War II, in Europe and the Pacific, and, in June 1947, married Mary Truitt. He and his wife raised three daughters.

Mr. Miller was born to be a carpenter. Childhood photos show him at the age of 3 holding a huge hammer. He went on to build many beautiful homes in Marin County during his career.

Mr. Miller retired at an early age, 27 years ago, and he and his wife relocated to Grass Valley. Mr. Miller then began working at the Milhous School for Boys as a counselor. He retired from Milhous at the age of 80, having experienced two careers that he loved. Mr. and Mrs. Miller recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary, surrounded by close family members.

Mr. Miller is survived by his beloved wife Mary; daughters Linda Esparza and her husband Al, Marilyn Miller, and Jeanine Krygsman and her husband Parris; grandchildren Saundra, Scott, Michele, Megan, Michael and Kaya; great-granddaughters Laurel and Aspen; two sisters; one brother; many nieces and nephews; and numerous friends. He was preceded in death by his grandson, Jon Keith Nobles.

The family requests no floral contributions. Monetary contributions may be made to Hospice of the Foothills, 2399 Nevada City Highway, Grass Valley, CA 95945, to honor the loving, compassionate care they provided Mr. Miller in his last months.

Arrangements are under the direction of Chapel of the Angels Mortuary.
