Michael's parents raised them with all the love and affection a parent could have, and Michael and his father had a connection like no other. After graduating high school, Michael worked for his father's company for a time, before he left and started a job as a milkman. It was around this time that Michael met the love of his life, Bernadette. The pair were married in 1979 and raised four wonderful children together. Michael inherited his father's big heart, and he loved his children so very much. His wife remarks that, "Michael's joy was his children. " He continued on to love all of the 8 grandchildren, and even 2 great grandchildren that he was blessed with. In his free time, Michael had a passion for all things cars. He had a Cadillac DTS Platinum that he treated like his baby. He was always cleaning and fixing it, making sure it ran just right. This car was so dear to him that he wouldn't even drive it in the rain. This passion for cars also brought Michael to another hobby; racing. He spent many days at an air strip in Montague, NY, with friends where they would bring their cars and show off their top speeds. He enjoyed drag racing anywhere he could find it, and even received the Stock Car Racing Experience at Pocono Raceway as a gift from Bernadette for his 65 th birthday. Through these hobbies Michael made lifelong friends that will always remember him dearly. And though his passing brings us sorrow, we take comfort in knowing he is at peace. We take this time to remember those who passed before him; is parents, Ray and Marjorie Miller, and his sisters, Suzie, Cookie, and Kelly Miller.
