Randall John Miller was born to John George Miller and Lois Arlene (O'Brien) Miller in Wauseon, Ohio. He attended school in Pike Township until high school. He helped his Dad farm. He loved the outdoors. We first met before high school in 1962. I knew at first glance that I would marry him someday. Many people don't believe in love at first sight, but it is real for some of us. It's not something that can be explained either.
We dated others until our senior year and then we got together and started going steady on our first date.
We married in October, 1965. He was a construction worker and, among other places, worked on the Fulton County Health Center, the Enrico Fermi power plant in Monroe, Michigan and Michigan International Speedway (MIS). At the time of his death, he was digging ponds and doing earth moving. We owned our own equipment and I ran the bulldozer when necessary. He died doing what he loved to do. He enjoyed working on cars, snowmobiling, animals and talking to anyone. One day he accidently drove over a rabbit's nest and killed the mother with the bulldozer. He brought the babies home and we tried to save them but they only lived a few days.
He was a gentle soul, friendly and very intelligent. He is still the love of my life and always will be.
As an interesting side note, while doing genealogy, I discovered that Randy is the 5th cousin of John Uhler (Jack) Lemmon III, the actor. Their g-g-g-grandparents were siblings. His g-g-grandfather, Daniel Miller married Marie Louisa Lemmon.
Here is a quote from cousin Jack: "Death ends a life, not a relationship".
It broke our hearts to lose you
but you did not go alone.
A part of us went with you
the day God took you home.
If tears could build a stairway
and heartaches make a lane,
We'd walk our way to heaven,
and bring you back again.
In life we loved you dearly
in death we love you still,
In our hearts you hold a place
no one could ever fill.
