Eugene Donald Miller

August 1, 1953 — December 11, 2022



Eugene Donald Miller- father, grandfather, and friend- passed away peacefully in Indianapolis, IN on Sunday, December 11, 2022.

Gene was born to Lawrence (Sr.) and Dolores Miller in Jasper, IN on August 1, 1953. He graduated from Jasper High School before beginning his 40+ year career in the long-haul trucking industry as a self-employed owner operator.

As a loving father and grandfather, Gene loved to reminisce about his kids. He also cherished watching or hearing about any activities that his grandkids were involved in. He was known for his unique laugh, willingness to give to others, and patience.

Through the years, Gene enjoyed farming, playing cards, watching the St. Louis Cardinals, a good political debate, listening to music, and traveling the country in his big rig. With a network of friends across the country, he was always quick with a joke, a story of life on the road, and of course a good prank.

Gene is survived by his children, Amanda (Brock) Dilger, son Nathan Miller, ex-wife Brenda Miller; three grandchildren, Addison, Spencer, and Hayden Dilger; four brothers Marty, Tom, Alan, and Lawrence (Jr.) Miller; two sisters Mary Martin, Sharon James; and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents Lawrence and Dolores Miller and a sister Angela Miller.

A mass will be held at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Ireland, IN on Wednesday, December 21, 2022, at 10am. Visitation will precede mass starting at 9am at the church. 

Memorial contributions may be made to the food pantry or humane society of your choice.
