Gary was born on December 24, 1948 to Marion Jefferson Miller and Mabel Louise Barron Miller in Evansville, Indiana and passed away on January 9, 2022 in Haughton, Louisiana.
Gary spent two years in the Air Force in Okinawa, Japan. After the Air Force, at the age of 23, his life was forever changed when he came to know the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Gary received his BA Degree in Sociology/Psychology from the University of Southern Indiana and his Master of Divinity from Louisville Presbyterian Seminary. He was a pastor in Rossville, Illinois, Connersville, Indiana, Canton, Ohio, and Minden, Louisiana. His hobbies included everything from drawing, painting, genealogy, reading, photography, billiards and travel.
He is preceded in death by his father, Marion Miller; and his infant daughter, Michelle Renee Miller. Left to cherish his memory is his wife of 47 years, Teresa "Terri" Miller; daughter, Amanda Borgelt (Dan), and their children, Caleb, Sophia, Levi, Noah, Judah, Robert and Eric, and daughter, Cassandra Almasy (Nicholas) and their children, Isabella, Hannah and Gianna; mother, Mabel Miller; sister, Donna Gaisser, sister-in-law, Lydia Balbach (Steve) and brother-in-law, Danny McCaffry; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
While his family grieves his loss, they do not despair because they are confident in their hope that he is forever in the presence of Jesus. They will see him again in glory.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial donations may be made to Broadmoor Baptist Church Lottie Moon Mission Fund.
