June 09, 1968 – September 28, 2012
Timothy (Tim) L. Miller, 44, unexpectedly met his Lord and Savior Friday September 28, 2012 at his home in Princeton, WI. He was born June 9, 1968 in Milwaukee, WI to Lillian Miller. Tim lived with his mother in Gillett. He spent much of his adolescents staying at and working on the farm of (Uncle) Jim and (Aunt) Yong Miller. Tim attended Gillett High School until 1985. After 10 years together, he married Wendy DuBois on June 9, 2009. Reading and studying the Bible in all forms were his biggest passions, in addition to discussing religion with his family and friends. Tim was always busy tinkering with something. He was an avid marksman and weapons enthusiast. He loved to go out with his friends for target practice. Tim enjoyed star gazing through his telescope especially on a cold night when the sky was the clearest. He loved to tell or listen to a good joke while sitting outside enjoying a Mountain Dew and a Marb Red. Tim appreciated listening to all types of music, particularly rock. He loved to work on and talk cars especially anything fast and powerful. Tim was fascinated with the military and dreamed his whole life of fighting for what’s right and decent. Very caring and giving, Tim was always worrying about others before himself. Helping whenever and where ever he could.
Survived by his wife Wendy; Bubba, his four-legged son; step-children, Connie Hagen and her son Christian, Samantha Hagen and her daughter Brooke and Nicholas Hagen of West Allis, WI; (Uncle) Jim and (Aunt) Yong Miller of Coleman, WI; uncle, Gordy Miller of Shawano, WI; sister, Linda Myers of London, OH; close friend, Jarret Jacob of Princeton, WI; in-laws, Alfred and Darlene DuBois of West Allis, WI; Michael Geark of Sheboygan, WI and many other family and friends.

His favorite quote: ”And Shepherds we shall be for thee, my Lord, for thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand; our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee, and teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti.” The final part of this prayer is in Latin. Its translation is, more or less, “In the name of the Father, of the Son, and the Holy Spirit”
