Miller, William

Dexter, MI

His Legacy… William Francis Miller, age 75, of Dexter, entered eternal life July 18, 2022. He was born on November 25, 1946, in Monroe, Michigan to George Miller and Gertrude (Chandler) Miller. William graduated from Dexter High School in 1964. On May 9, 1969, he married Dianna Coval at St. Joseph Catholic Parish in Dexter. William believed in hard work and providing for his family. If something needed to be repaired, William would research and learn how to fix it himself. He enjoyed country living and tended to the lawn, garden and upkeep of the house. William enjoyed coaching his daughter’s tee-ball and softball teams and supporting their interests over the course of their school years. When his wife returned to working full time, William took to making many of the weeknight meals. He believed family was important and would take time to visit his parents and siblings frequently. His grandchildren fondly recall him as always having fruit snacks for them, picking them up from school and making delicious Christmas meals.

His Family… William will be missed by his children, Michelle (Brad) Hochrein of Dexter, Shana (Pete) Barnum of Mason; siblings, George (Beth) Miller, Glenn (Char) Miller, Earl Miller, Rose (Glenn) Seleska; grandchildren Aidan, Brennan & Tyler Hochrein, Emma, William, Sophia, & Amelia Barnum; sister-in-law Sue Miller and many extended relatives. He is preceded in death by his wife, Dianna Miller, parents, George & Gertrude Miller, brother, Frank Miller, and sisters-in-law, Barbara Miller and Charlene Miller.

His Farewell… William’s family and friends will gather on Wednesday, July 27, 2022, from 4-7pm, with a Scripture Service at 7pm, at St. Joseph Country Church (6805 Mast Rd. Dexter, Michigan).
