Kenneth Lane Miller, 58, passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 7, 2020, at Baylor Scott & White Hospital in Temple with his family by his bedside.

He fought hard against a recent cancer diagnosis with several complications.

Services were held Thursday, June 11, at Park Heights Church of Christ at 10 a.m. followed by burial in Oakwood Cemetery under the direction of Riley Funeral Home.

Mr. Miller was born Dec. 23, 1961, to Patricia Ann (Bell) Grippando and Lloyd Sherrill Miller in Muleshoe. In his younger years, he lived in McAlester, Oklahoma, for a while. After graduating from Muleshoe High School in 1980, Kenneth moved to Dublin to live and work with his dad on a dairy. Later, his dad bought a dairy in Dublin, and he worked with him running it.

In February 1984, Kenneth started working for Fibergrate Composite Structures in Stephenville, while continuing to work for his dad. He was with Fibergrate for 36 years and was well known and respected in the industry.

Kenneth met his wife Deborah (Horner) Miller of Hamilton through mutual friends while she was attending Tarleton State University in Stephenville. They were married August 18, 1984, in Hamilton. Kenneth was baptized April 11, 2019, and a member of the Park Heights church of Christ in Hamilton. He was active in serving the Lord’s Supper, leading prayers, serving as an usher, fellowship activities, participating in nursing home visitation and a few months ago completed a Bible course called Fishers of Men.

He enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing and playing with his dog Boo. His pride and joys were his daughter Betsy and granddaughter Katy. They were so precious to him, and he loved them beyond words.
