Steven Dee Miller of Huffman, TX (formerly of Palmyra, PA) passed away suddenly on Sunday, October 24, 2021, just 2 days before his 70th birthday.
He was a son to the late Ned H. and Dorothy I. (Carroll) Miller. He grew up in Palmyra, a town which he loved and was a member of the Palmyra High School class of 1969. Steve joined the U.S. Navy after high school where he was trained to work in air traffic control. He was a proud veteran. Steve was artistically talented and a true people person. He used these skills throughout his work career, working in graphic design and sales. After he found his life partner, Debbie Crapse, he worked with her for over 20 years in the antique furniture restoration and sales business.
In addition to Debbie, Steve is survived by his son, Scott Alan Miller, of Lebanon, PA and Debbie’s children, Kevin Crapse of San Antonio, TX, and Rachel (Donnie) Draeger of Eagle Pass, TX, and grandson Worth, with whom he had a special bond. He is also survived by his siblings, Marcia (Don) Herr, Edenton N.C., Todd (Ann) Miller, Palmyra, PA, and Timothy (Laurie) Miller, Palmyra, PA and many nieces and nephews.
Steve enjoyed fishing for many years; was the best fishing buddy to his nephews and Scott and taught them much about fishing on family vacations in Sullivan County. Over the years, Steve enjoyed watching sports, especially the Houston Astros. He shared his love of music with Scott, as they played for years in a bluegrass band; Steve on the guitar, and Scott on the banjo. His siblings and their children will always cherish the memories of those fun family vacations together and the music around the campfire. Another love Steve had was cooking. As a “master chef”, Steve could go on forever talking about food and how he made his favorite dishes. Family and friends reaped the benefits of his food ministry through delicious meals that he enjoyed preparing.
Most of all, Steve dearly loved Debbie and his family and he will forever be remembered by them as a warm big-hearted, well-loved partner, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle. He always stayed connected despite the miles that separated them. He enjoyed keeping ties with his Palmyra High School classmates and many Palmyra friends. He was often lovingly referred to as the “Palmyra historian”. His stories, witty comments, caring thoughts, and humor will be deeply missed by all his Facebook friends. A good and wonderful man who loved life, Steve will remain in our hearts forever.
