Roy Leon “Tiny” Miller, 89, of Carlisle, passed to eternal life on Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2013, at his home with loving family by his side.  He was born Thursday, Jan. 10, 1924, in Carlisle, a son of the late Roy H. and Mary E. (Wise) Miller and was married to the late Gladys M. (Loudon) Miller for 64 years and who died April 10, 2011.

Roy was a 1943 graduate of Carlisle High School, where he studied auto mechanics and played football.  He served as a Sergeant in the US Marine Corps during WWII and was an aircraft mechanic.  Roy was a lifelong farmer and bought the homestead in North Middleton Twp. in 1954 from his father.  He also worked as an automobile mechanic for the former Buckley Motors in Carlisle.  Even though family and farming took up much of his time, Roy served as Chairman on the Zoning Hearing Board and was Judge of Elections in North Middleton Twp. for 46 years.  Roy was a longtime member of First United Methodist Church (Carlisle U. M. Church) and American Legion Post 101, Carlisle.  Roy enjoyed staying active with Carlisle High School Football and for many years he ran the football chains and down marker at the home games.  Roy will be deeply missed by his family and friends.   

He is survived by two sons; James L. (wife, Deb) Miller of Lititz and Martin H. Miller of Carlisle, two daughters; Ann M. Motter of Shippensburg and Cynthia “Cindy” J. (husband, Les) Welsh of Newville, three sisters; Anna Mae Raudabaugh of Carlisle, Jean Wickard of Newburg and Pauline Lohman of Metaire, LA, 14 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.  Roy was predeceased by brothers; Loren and Marlin Miller and one granddaughter, Tara Lynn.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, October 5, 2013, at 11 a.m. in the Ewing Brothers Funeral Home, 630 S. Hanover St., Carlisle, with Pastor Wayne A. Good officiating.  A viewing will be held on Saturday from 9:30 a.m. until time of services at the funeral home.  Burial with military honors by Cumberland County Honor Guard will be in Cumberland Valley Memorial Gardens, Carlisle.  Flowers are welcome or memorial contributions may be made to Celtic Healthcare of Carlisle, Suite 100, 220 Wilson St., Carlisle, PA 17013.

I am so sorry for your loss, Roy was such a kind and loving man. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with him and I am sad to see him gone. His smile and laugh could light up a room! Take care Roy and may you be at peace.


 Cindy & Family: You have my deepest sympathy. I remember the corn on the fireplace & when he took me in the barn to see the cows. I loved it. I really didn't know that he played the radio to the cows. That was really cool. He will be missed by all. Sorry I couldn't be there. I just can't handle funerals. Once again I will miss him as you and your family will too. I also ran into him at Walmart.
With Love Always:

Debbie & Jim

Sorry to hear of Roy's passing. He was a great person to work with at the Farm Service Agency during his time farming. I am sorry I missed his services.

I am so sorry for your loss of a  wonderful man. I enjoyed all the times I spent
at the farm. The cows, pigs, kittens, the fun during the fireworks and of course  the yummy ice cream. Sorry I wasn't at the funeral as I was out of town.  I know  Leon is in a better place now and smiling down at us all. My hugs to you all.  

Love, Jeanette & Dave Gribble
