We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend, Otis Ray "Pap" Miller, Sr., 88, on April 16, 2023, in Daytona Beach, Fl, after a brief illness.
Pap was born in Brownton, WV, on October 23, 1934, to John and Virginia Miller. He was one of 14 children.
He worked for Reliable Coal for many years until he retired. He loved his home state of West Virginia and spent several months out of the year there enjoying time with family and friends. He lived in Ormond Beach, FL, for the remainder of the year.
Anyone who knew Pap knew he loved and cherished his family more than anything in the world.

He is also survived by his brothers, Delmas Miller, Larry Miller and Jerry Miller and his sisters, Lena Buchanan and Laura Crites.
Pap was preceded in death by his parents, John and Virginia Miller; his brothers, John Miller, Earl "Bud" Miller, Charles Miller, Joe Miller and Hershel Miller and sisters, Atha Goff, Delilah Cool and Hattie Hungsinger.
