Christopher Michael Miller, born Dec. 10, 1981, in Sandusky, at age 31 passed away unexpectedly on June 16, 2013, in Marietta, Ga.
He graduated High School in 1999 and enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. He bravely served our country from 1999 to 2003, traveling to various countries overseas, was a decorated Marine and served one tour of active duty in Iraq. In February of 2003, he and his Marine buddies changed companies so they could go to Kuwait and be in the first wave to cross the border to Iraq.
He attended Bowling Green State University and Life University, majoring in chiropractic in Marietta and had a passion for learning. He was extremely gifted in working with computers, loved reading, and loved hiking in the mountains. More than anything, he loved spending time with his family.
On Sept. 25, 2010, he married Angela (Monak) Miller, the love of his life, and together, they had a son, Ayden Lanning Miller, born Nov. 6, 2009, whom he loved to take “bug hunting.”
