He will be dearly missed by his brother-in-law, best friend, and caretaker, David Miller of Racine; Aunt Ardys Larson of Tomahawk, cousins, other relatives and many dear friends.  In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his sister, Sharon “Sharry” Miller.

Robert’s family wishes to extend their sincere gratitude to Alpha Homes and their entire staff, especially Valerie and Betty for their excellent care.  The many trips to various events, including Brewer games, bowling, the zoo, parks and around the city always gave Bob something to look forward to, and improved his quality of life greatly.
