Bruce A. Miller, 69, passed away on Sept. 13, 2020, at his home in Kerrville, TX. Bruce was born ‘lucky’ in Lawrence, KS on Friday Oct. 13, 1950 to parents Harry & Vivian Miller who farmed near Lawrence. Bruce is survived by his brother, Harry of Syracuse, NY and sister, Nancy Reiling of Lawrence, KS as well as nieces and nephews. Bruce graduated from Lawrence High School and Fort Hays State University.
Bruce was an affable person who was quick to make others laugh and smile. He had a quick wit that he loved using. Having grown up on a farm, he loved animals. They all had names and a history which he could readily recount. He nursed to health a number of distressed calves by feeding them with a bottle. Bruce loved to take his nieces and nephews fishing at the pond on the farm and to pet the cows.
Over the years Bruce held a number of jobs including farm real estate agent, car salesman, field medical equipment repair, medical insurance scoring, and elder home care among them. These jobs took him around the country so he resided in Memphis, TN, South Carolina, Overland Park, Kansas and Blue Eye, MO. His favorite job was taking care of his mother until she passed at 100 years old.
Bruce’s favorite pastime was music where he played the piano and guitar and fancied himself a playwright who would someday be discovered for his talent. He had a raft of experiences to draw upon in developing a play.
A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, March 13 at 11:00 CST at Rumsey-Yost Funeral Home
