+ click to enlarge

William Frederick Miller, 77, born in Oakland, CA to Irwin D. and Dorothy (Sheller) Miller on January 11, 1937, died February 16, 2014 at Clare Bridge in Bend, with his family around him.

Bill grew up in Lafayette, CA as an only child and attended the University of Oregon, where he met his wife Marilou (Mimi) Goldsmith Miller. He launched himself into a career of marketing and sales, and along the way helped build the Oregon wine business and sold French fries internationally. Charismatic and fun-loving, he traveled extensively throughout his career and made many friends throughout Europe and Asia.

His family remembers his many different interests through the years including golf, genealogy, bonsai, fly tying and fly fishing, camping, wine tasting, trains, mountain climbing, music, and boating. He deeply loved Puget Sound and after retirement he and Mimi spent a lot of time on their boat the Lady M in the San Juan Islands and beyond.

He loved teasing and jokes, shopping at a discount, peanut butter and pickle sandwiches, Japanese electronics, hats, England, and planning trips. Even when limitations took away his ability to physically go places, he was cheerfully traveling in his mind. Always ready for the next adventure, we know he's enjoying the new experiences the next life brings.

Bill is survived by his wife of 55 years, Mimi; his daughter LeeAnne Hines (Bob) of Portland; his son Peter Miller (Sheri) of Tigard; his daughter Katie Miller (Tom Lyman) of Brooklyn, NY; and six grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held on March 15, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. at The Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration, 68825 Brooks Camp Road, Sisters, OR 97759. Remembrances would be welcomed by Parkinson's Resources of Oregon, 3975 Mercantile Dr., Lake Oswego, OR 97035. Sign the online guest book at www.niswonger-reynolds.com.
