Russell Miller, 65, passed away peacefully on Monday January 8, 2018.  He was born on July 29, 1952 in Jersey Shore a son of Paul D. Miller and Esther (Signor) Miller.  He graduated from Jersey Shore High School in 1972.  Russ worked for 36 years at the Jersey Shore Hospital as a cook and courier before retiring.

Anyone that knew Russ understood his love of music.  Over the years he played in 6 bands with his brothers and buddies.. When a great song came on the radio you would hear Russ say “Turn it Up!”   His love for music was only surpassed by his greater love for his family and friends.

Russ enjoyed being outside and taking care of his home and yard as well.  He even loved mowing!  He visited camp often and appreciated just being with his friends and family.  He also enjoyed hunting, fishing and was an avid sports fan. Russ was a faithful Pittsburgh fan who cheered on the Steelers, Pirates and the Penguins and also a USC Trojan fan. He would rarely missed a NASCAR race on TV.  Russ and his wife visited Pocono Raceway from time to time.

Russ lived for the holidays; he always had his house tastefully decorated for each celebration.  He was well known for his holiday attired “Three Stooges” figures that found a home on his porch each season.  He never missed a 4th of July parade or fireworks.  Russ loved life and lived it to the fullest.

Russ is survived by his wife of 31 years, Mary “Mick” (Marks) Miller of Jersey Shore, his children, Matthew Miller and Kathy Kistner, grandchildren, Cory, Jenna, Tyler, Mason, Courtney and Jena; his siblings, Paul “Bub” Miller, Kevin Miller (Toni), Charlene McCullum (Lewis), Karen Skalla and Susan (George) Norman and also many nieces and nephews.

“There’s a feeling I get when I look to the west,

And my spirit is crying for leaving.”

“In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees

And in the voices of those who stand looking”
