Sounds like a truly amazing man. I would have been an honor to have know him. A true Renaissance man.

I will miss Jake Miller, but I know that his character and stories will live on through the recollections and stories told by his kids and grandkids. My favorite memories of Jake Miller took place near Floyd Virginia, each time I visited my brother Mike Fisher and sister in law Jean Miller's log home. I spent a good bit of time there in the Spring and Summer of 1994, and it seemed like Jake was almost always there. He spent his time exploring the woods and making and gathering firewood, and I spent my time plinking with a .22 and exploring the area. I immediately liked that Jake Miller enjoyed time in the woods as much as I did. I was impressed with his sustained work ethic, clearing brush and trees from dawn to dusk; he had a vision of a pastoral area for horses and a garden. When I visited later that Summer, Mike, Jean and Jake had put in a large garden, and Jake continued to work on expanding the area for a pasture. I will always remember Jake Miller's authentic congratulations when I made a rather lucky shot, taking a rabbit that had been doing its best to eat the garden. He encouraged me and joked with me about my becoming a Marine. Jake Miller's military service was impressive, and I could tell that he was made of tough stuff, so I was impressed that he didn't get upset when I all too vigorously chucked a large log into his new truck, denting the fender- I bet my carelessness further affirmed that I was Marine material- always denting things and shooting stuff. He definitely made a big impression on me.

I will miss him dearly. I was one of the nurses who took care of him at the veterans nursing facility. I will always remember his stories he told me. Over the time I spent with him it was an Honor to known him and to care for him. He was indeed my hero and my friend.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
