Terry Glenn Miller

Former peninsula resident Terry Glenn Miller died Saturday, Jan. 5, 2008 at his home in Anchorage. He was 60.

At Mr. Miller's request, there will be no services. Family and friends will gather this summer for a private celebration of his life.

Mr. Miller was born Feb. 24, 1947, in Anchorage to Harris C. 'Sonny' and Virginia L. (Eide) Miller. He attended Kenai Central High School and served in the National Guard before working a variety of mechanical- and oil field-related jobs. He owned his own business, Sterling Engine Rebuild, in Sterling, for several years. He eventually settled in Anchorage where he spent the last 25 years of his life.

Mr. Miller enjoyed entertaining family and friends, working in his garden, boating, and fishing. He was noted for his creativity and skill with his hands, particularly with his woodworking and his ability to repair anything with a motor.

Mr. Miller will be remembered by his family and friends for his generous and giving nature, his sense of humor, and his love of the outdoors. He was always available to lend a helping hand to family, friends and strangers alike, and was never happier than when he was boating and fishing on the Kenai River.

Mr. Miller was preceded in death by his father, Sonny Miller of Soldotna; mother, Virginia Caro of Sequim, Wash.; stepmother, Dorothy Miller of Anchorage; stepfather, Luke Caro of Sequim, Wash.; sister, Merinda Gascon of Louisiana; brother-in-law Charles "Buck" Gascon of Louisiana; nephew Christopher Robinson of Fairbanks; partner John Andrews of Anchorage, and close friends Greg Klingel and John Murphy.

He is survived by his brother, Nick Miller of Kenai; sister Kathi Reynolds of Fairbanks; sister Beth Feller of Everett, Wash.; brother Andy Caro of Bainbridge Island, Wash.; uncle and aunt James and Lenore Clinton of Anchorage; numerous nieces and nephews, and his beloved dog, Smokey.

Friends may send condolences to 1101 25th Ave., Fairbanks 99701.

Arrangements were made by Kehl's Forest Lawn Funeral Home.
