Full Obituary

JOHN D. MILLER, age 64, of Greenwood, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Christmas day, December 25, 2014, at his home surrounded by his group home family. Funeral services will be held at Cuddie Funeral Home, in Greenwood, on Tuesday, December 30, 2014 at 11am. Rev. Brian Campbell will officiate and burial will follow at Church of the Brethren Cemetery, rural Stanley. Pallbearers will be: David Miller, Chad Miller, Mike Miller, Devon Weaver, Angie Weaver and Kris Charais. Visitation will be held on Tuesday, at the funeral home, from 10am until time of service.
John Dennis Miller was born on October 16, 1950 in Stanley, WI, the son of Donald and Mary (Krueger) Miller. In 1978, he moved to Pabich's Residential Facility in Greenwood, WI, where he has resided since. He had a full life and loved going to work at ADS. John had many interests, but especially enjoyed bowling, golfing, trips to see the Packers, and concerts. He was especially fond of the Packers and of Elvis Presley. He was able to take a number of long distance trips, overcoming his fear of flying. John belonged to Explorer Scouts and went on camping trips with them. He was a friendly, outgoing, and jolly person who loved music and singing, and seemed to know everyone. As the "man of the house" he also knew everything going on at home and where everything was. The men he lived with were like brothers to him.
John is survived by his siblings: Jeanne (Terry) Briggs of Janesville, Betty Melichar of New Franken, Sherry (Larry) Gerrits of Stanley, and Jerry (Connie) Miller of Stanley; many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, aunts and uncles, grandparents, and by a brother-in-law, Victor Melichar.
The family wishes to express deep gratitude to Bert Pabich and her staff from the group home for their years of loving care and commitment to the health and well-being of John. He is no longer a "special needs" child, he is now (and always was) a special child of God with no needs. And for this we are praising God.
