Lloyd Miller

Sheridan Lloyd Miller, 20 April 1942 - 23 October 2015.

"Bub" as he is affectionately known by siblings lead a full and remarkable life. He grew up in a single family home to mother Cora Miller along with his one brother Ronald "Buck" Miller and his four sisters Martha "Sis" Miller (Williams), Rosalie "Rosey" Miller, Donna Miller and Janet "Toot" Miller (Reidy).

Lloyd, as he preferred to be called by close friends and acquaintances, left his home in Fort Wayne, IN and joined the United States Army. Soon after enlistment he was given orders assigning him to South Korea where he spent three years.

Upon returning home to Indiana and marrying he was given the inspiration of moving his family of wife Suzanne Miller (Kreiger), daughter Lisa "Woo" Miller (Boykin) and two sons Robert and Bryan Miller. After arriving in Tingley IA, Lloyd and Suzanne opened the Old Fort Cafe which operated for 10 years. In that time, Lloyd was blessed with another son James Miller. Lloyd had served as the mayor of Tingley.

After closing the restaurant in Tingley, Lloyd went to work as the Kitchen Manager for Clearview Nursing Homes. Lloyd was adored by many residents and co-workers. He always went the extra mile to make something simple into something great. Lloyd will be sorely missed by everyone who had the pleasure of his company. He was not just a husband and father but a wonderful and remarkable man all around.

His memory will live on through his grandchildren: Corbin Allen Miller, Lindsey Michelle Fryback, Noah James Boykin, Brandon Michael Walls, Dustin Andrew Walls, Tristen Haze Miller, Madison Nichole Miller, Allyson Paige Miller, Emma Jayne Miller and one great grandchild Braylon Scott Fritz.

A memorial fund has been established in his name to be decided later.

To Janet, Bucky, and family.
So sorry to read about Lloyd''s Passing. What a great achievement his life became.
My memory was Janet and I and the neighbor girls making a box pizza in the early 60''s and Lloyd adding dandruff to the dough. We all had so much fun back then and the memories are still great to think about. The neighborhood has changed, but on occasion I drive by and smile about all the good times.
I hope this finds both bucky and janet doing very well. I would love to catch up with you Janet if at all possible. Much affection to you both and regrets on Lloyd leaving you so early.

I am so sorry for the loss of what sounds like a wonderful man. I never had the pleasure of meeting him, but he meant the world to Bryan. Praying for you all as you go through this rough journey.

I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Lloyd at Clearview nursing home! He made work fun and interesting. He loved planning the menus for the holidays! We always knew Lloyds family meant the world to him, he would have a twinkle in his eye whenever he would talk about his kids or grandkids. Spending time with family was very important to him. I will miss visiting with Lloyd he would always want to know how are girls were doing in school and even made sure to send them graduation cards when the graduated high school! Lloyd always had a sense of humor and a smile on his face. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family!

I will always remember the times when Lloyd, Suzanne and Cora and I worked in the Old Fort in Tingley. The kids were little and we just had one big happy family. I learned a lot from Suzanne and Lloyd in how to be a good waitress. And I will cherish those memories.
