This was wrote in first person, so that our dad could tell one last story. This is just a fraction of what this man’s life really was. Tonight, we are proud to be MILLER’s. With great eternal love – Worm, Sis, Little Bear.

In Tommy’s own words: “I want you to know about me! My name is Tommy Lee Miller also known as Mountain Man. I was born on November 1, 1964 in the mountains of North Carolina. Growing up I learned the value of helping people. I am an Eagle Scout and Scout Master, an EMT, a Firefighter, welder and musician. I was also Santa, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy. Last but NOT least I am a son, brother, father, grandfather, and a friend. I am a man that you can joke and laugh with; but also, a man that is feared and respected. I love to teach by instilling my wisdom to everyone around me. I am always willing to help someone in need, that’s why it’s my honor to save a life after I am gone. Thank you, for giving a piece of me the opportunity to live on.”

He was preceded in death by his parents, Leroy and Iva Lee Miller.
