Mr. Robert E. “Bob” Miller, 87, of Elkhart, passed away on Monday, February 15, 2021. He was born in Goshen on April 7, 1933 to the late Herold and Olla (Michelin) Miller and married his beautiful Sharon R. Trigg in Elkhart in 1967. She survives at home after 54 wonderful years together.
Bob was an avid outdoor enthusiast and a faithful member of Elkhart Life Church. He loved camping, biking, long drives in the country, gardening, and bird watching. He was a hard worker and loved helping people in any capacity he could find. He enjoyed the simple beauty of life and was always quick to talk about his many blessings. “Counting blessings” was his favorite pastime.

Jeffery) Glick of South San Francisco, CA; 10 grandchildren; one great granddaughter; and the family of honorary stepson Bruce Robinson of Whale Pass, AK. Two brothers, Jay and Herman Miller, preceded Bob in death.
