Hubert E. Miller, 89, a longtime resident of Fort Worth, left this life Tuesday, July 26, 2005.

Hubert was a native of Ridgeland, S.C., and a graduate of Clemson University, where he played football to great acclaim and earned his nickname "Goon."

As a member of the Army Air Corps and the U.S. Army Air Force during World War II, he received many medals and commendations for his service, including the Distinguished Flying Cross and Bronze Star. In his first two tours of duty in Molesworth, England, he was a member of the 8th Air Force, 303rd Bomb Group, participating in the earliest daylight high-altitude bombing of the war.

Then Maj. Miller spent his third tour of duty in North Africa, involved in paratrooper and photographic missions. His roommate at this assignment was none other than Clark Gable. He retired from the military in 1964 at Carswell AFB with the rank of lieutenant colonel. After his service in the military, "Herb" worked at General Dynamics on the F-111 project and other endeavors in ecology and wilderness real estate.

Whether you knew him as "Goon," "Colonel" or "Herb," you know that he will be missed by his loving family.

He was preceded in death by only six weeks by his wife, Martha Jean Ackerman Miller.
