Jeffrey Charles Miller, 56, passed away in his home in Fort Collins, Colorado on September 24, 2018. He was adored by his family and friends, and admired deeply by everyone who knew him in his remarkable life.
Services will be held at 10:00 AM CDT on Monday, October 1, 2018 at the Barbot Funeral Home, Hazen, North Dakota with Pastor Dennis Ristvedt officiating. Burial will follow at Our Savior’s Lutheran Cemetery, rural Stanton.
Jeff was born April 8, 1962 in Pierre, South Dakota and grew up in Stanton, North Dakota and Wheatland, Wyoming, where he enjoyed playing sports and working on family farms. As a young adult, Jeff moved to Fort Collins, Colorado and soon began a successful, fulfilling career of 35 years at the Platte River Power Plant. Jeff enjoyed golfing, fishing, hunting with his cousins and his friends, and was passionate about anything involving University of Wyoming sports.
Jeff was an inspirational father, always striving to be the best version of himself and encouraging others to do the same. He had an incredible work ethic that extended well beyond his extraordinary career. He could fix anything and generously gave his time and talents to anyone who needed help. He loved taking on projects at home, especially in his beautiful yard. He spent special time with his Dad helping him to build his log home in Wyoming, and in recent years, cutting many cords of wood for the fireplace.
He is survived by his love of 19 years, Anita Miller and children, Jacob and Madeline Miller; his parents, Janice Miller of Austin, Texas and Dale (Cecelia) Miller of Bedford, Wyoming; his sister, Trish Miller of Austin, Texas; his sister, Coleen (Peter) Regan and nephew, Sean Regan and niece, Grace Regan, all of Jackson, Wyoming; and many, many other special relatives.
Donations in memory of Jeff may be made to the American Heart Association in lieu of flowers.
