Born in Sacramento, California in 1942, to the late Carl Miller and Helen Ries Miller, Carl graduated from Sacramento Senior High School in 1960 and was awarded a Bachelor of Science in Economics from the Wharton School of Finance and Commerce at the University of Pennsylvania in 1964. He obtained a Master of Business Administration from the University of Washington in 1970.
In his youth, Carl was active in the Sea Scouts and later in life was the Cub Master and Boy Scout Master of Amherst Troop 613, and enjoyed taking the boys on camping trips and to summer camp. An avid skier all his life, he enjoyed skiing with family and friends throughout the United States.

Carl had a successful career in the sale of industrial printing equipment and he served on the Board of Directors and was Chairman of the Government Affairs Committee of the National Printing Equipment and Supply Association. In 1992, Carl had a bone marrow transplant for chronic myelogenous leukemia and retired for medical reasons.
Active in his community, Carl was a Rotarian in the Milford Rotary Club for twelve years and was particularly proud and active in the Rotary Club's efforts to raise funds for Pure Water for the World. He had also previously been a member of the Bellevue Rotary Club in Washington. As a volunteer for Score he served as a counselor to small business for three years. He also greatly enjoyed his nine-year involvement on the Amherst Zoning Board of Adjustment, both as an elected member and an alternate. In addition, Carl served terms as Chairman and Treasurer of the Atherton Board and he was on the Board of Directors of the Loon Mountain Club in Lincoln, NH for six years.
Carl was a member of the Amherst Congregational Church and was an active member of the Men's Fellowship Group, along with serving as Church Treasurer last year. He was universally liked and appreciated for his intelligence, willingness to serve, good humor and leadership skills.

Miller, a banker in Hong Kong; his sister, Marjorie Muck of Wheatland, California; along with extended family and close friends. His sister, Carlene Miller Cline, predeceased him.
