Obituary of Fr. Gregory P. Miller
ALEXANDER - The Reverend Father Gregory P. Miller of the Anglican Province of America passed from this life Thursday, September 16, 2021 at his home in Alexander.
Fr. Miller was born October 19, 1956 in Casper, Wyoming to the late Forrest Ogden and Vila Jane Miller, and grew up on the West Coast where he developed a profound love for “the great outdoors” and classical music, especially J.S. Bach.
Fr. Greg was a renaissance man, as he was a priest, registered nurse, teacher, chaplain, composer, and organist.
Through each of these careers, there was one constant: His love for Christ and his dedication to his Lord and Saviour. His servant leadership came from faithfully following Christ our Lord.
He served churches in California, Michigan, Oregon, New York, Virginia, and North Carolina.
He is survived by his loving wife, Shirley Ann Miller; his three children and their spouses, Sarah and Christopher Buehler, Stephen and Jennifer Miller, James and Christine Miller; his nine grandchildren, Timothy, Katherine, Ryan, Owen, Benjamin, Abigail, Evan, Joshua, and Emily; and his siblings, Forrest, Bradford, Keith, and Susan.
