Lloyd G. Miller, age 95, died February 10, 2020 at his home, surrounded by family.

A seventh generation native of Watauga County, he was born and lived his entire life on Chestnut Grove Road in Boone. He was the son of the late Henry W. and Etta Jones Miller.

His sister Margaret Miller and brother Ernest Miller and his wife Darlene also survive him, as do many treasured nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and other extended family. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his three brothers and four sisters.

Mr. Miller was a retired auto mechanic, and a skilled craftsman who could make anything from spurs to stagecoaches. He loved bluegrass gospel music, the history of the old west, raising animals, and collecting antique tools and western memorabilia.
