Obituary for Keith W. Miller

December 20, 1932 - January 18, 2020
Burnips, Michigan | Age 87


Keith Miller, age 87, of Burnips, entered his heavenly home on Saturday, January 18, 2020.

Keith was born in Grand Rapids, on December 20, 1932 to William and Ethel Miller. He proudly served his country in the US Army. Keith married his high school sweetheart, Neva Sawyer and they shared more than 67 years together.

Keith was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He worked hard on his farm and modeled a quiet strength to those who knew him. Keith enjoyed being active: biking, rollerblading and even learning to downhill ski in his 50s. His love of motorcycles and cars developed into something of a collection over the years. Above all, Keith was a man of deep faith. He was a member of LifeChange Church in Burnips and was a prayer warrior.

Keith is survived by his wife, Neva Miller; children: Brad (Kris) Miller, Stacey (Gary) Dozeman; grandchildren: Kyle (Heidi) Miller, Aaron (Susan) Miller, Gunnar Dozeman, Sadie Dozeman; great-grandchildren: Alexis, Paige and Henry Miller; siblings: Roger (Donna) Miller, Phyllis (Merle) Immink; in-laws: Lyle "Abe" (Ginger) Sawyer, Bob (Shirley) Sawyer, Jack Sawyer; as well as many nieces and nephews.

Keith was preceded in death by his grandson, Joshua Miller; in-laws: Don and Mavis Emelander and Evelyn Sawyer.
