Obituaries » William R. Miller

William Richmond Miller, 92, of Warrenton, passed away peacefully Dec. 25, 2020, at Poet’s Walk in Warrenton.

He was born Jan. 23, 1928, in Rutherfordton County, N.C., to the late Samuel Harrison Miller and Bertha West Miller.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Izetta Sears “Bo” Miller; a daughter, Kathy Sue Patton; a son, William R. “Billy” Miller Jr., and five sisters and brothers.

Mr. Miller served in the United States Navy from 1946 to 1948. A salesman all his life, he met and married his wife in Charlotte, N.C., and his work brought the family to McLean in 1957. They in 1968 moved to Warrenton, where he soon opened Miller Carpets on West Shirley Avenue and worked there until retiring in 2015. He loved his work and always held the belief that “the customer is always first” and lived his life that way. He was an active member at Warrenton Baptist Church since moving to Warrenton and served in many ways including as a Deacon, Sunday School Teacher, Usher and various committees. He also enjoyed visiting as he operated the elevator.

He was a loyal husband and father and a great and responsible provider for his family. He encouraged his children in their faith, their work and building their character.

He is survived by a daughter, Dr. Barbara Sears Miller; a son, David Dwight “Ike” Miller and his wife Karla; a daughter-in-law, Joanne Campbell Miller; two grandsons, Travis Joseph Miller and William Matthew “Billy” Patton; three great grandchildren, Aiden and Joseph Miller and Charlie Patton; a sister, Pauline “Polly” Whitlock of Spindale, N.C., and dear nieces and nephews and other relatives.

A graveside service will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, December 30, at Bright View Cemetery, 8265 Lunsford Road, near Warrenton.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Fauquier SPCA, P.O. Box 733, Warrenton, Va. 20188 or to the Virginia Baptist Children’s Home, 860 Mt. Vernon Lane, Salem, Va. 24153.
