Ricky Juon Miller, 61, of Hamilton, passed away on Friday, June 3, 2022, at his residence.
He was born on February 6, 1961, to Juon and Wilma Miller.
He attended Happy Hill Church and loved his church family.
He was a 1979 graduate of Hamilton High School and for most of his life was employed in the truck driving business.
He had much love for his family, friends and animals. He had a passion for riding horses and spent many hours in the saddle. Farming his cows and horses was what he loved and worked hard at. Anyone that knew him had a story to tell about him and he made an impact on everyone he met. He was a hard worker, always had a smile on his face and was willing to lend a helping and to anyone in need. Cancer never took these admirable qualities away from him, despite how bad he felt. He faced each new day with a smile and praised God every step of the way. He will also be remembered for his love of a good competition. Whether it be tournament fishing, racing go carts, or a horse race, he was up to the challenge. He will probably be remembered most for his faith throughout his journey with cancer. He was an inspiration to many, showing such strength while undergoing treatments and still being able to climb on a tractor and put out hay for his beloved animals. He loved and appreciated life and all God’s many blessings. He has had the healing we all prayed for. He has won the ultimate competition, and heard God say, “Well done thou good and faithful servant.”
He is survived by his daughter - Katelan (Ethan) Kilgore; his life partner - Tina Davidson Cochran; brothers - Harold (Janet) Miller, Donnie (Geraldine) Miller, and Hank (Belinda) Miller; and sister - Judy Dozier.
He was preceded in death by his parents - Juon and Wilma Childers Miller.
A memorial service for Mr. Miller was held on Sunday, June 5, 2022, at Happy Hill Church with burial following at the adjoining cemetery.
