Our loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother and friend, John Joseph Miller, 66, of Billings, passed away Saturday, Nov. 16, 2013, at his home surrounded by his loved ones.

John was born June 6, 1947, in Dickinson, N.D., a son of Helen Wiesmann Miller and John M. Miller. He was raised in Mott, N.D., until his family moved to Billings in 1959. John graduated from West High in 1966. He attended Wyoming Vo-Tech and enlisted in the North Dakota/Montana National Guard from March 1967 to July 1976.

On Sept. 6, 1968, John married the love of his life, Helen Kamarath, in Mott, N.D., and the couple made their home in Billings. John thought the world of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchild, whom he loved to spoil.

His enjoyments in life were spending time with and visiting with his wife and other family and friends. He also enjoyed helping his four sons work on their cars and enjoyed visiting with his two daughters for hours on end. John was recognized by his many friends for his kind heart and great sense of humor.

His dad, John Miller, and his mom, Helen Wiesmann Miller, preceded John in death.

The family thanks Dr. Christensen at Frontier Cancer Center, Dr. Johnson at St. Vincent Internal Medicine and the nurses at St. Vincent third floor Fortin Center. Special thanks to our brother, Bryan Miller, for all his dedication to our dad and getting him to all his appointments.
