Roy C Miller, 79, of Louisville passed away on Sunday, July 26, 2020. Roy (Sonny) was born May 30, 1941 to the late Roy E. and Ruth (Graber) Miller. He graduated from Glenwood High School where he broke the track record in shot put and discus throws. He was also a graduate of The Ohio State University, and was an intern to the professor in the Ag College. He played football, basketball, and golf on OSU IM league teams, and was an enthusiastic Buckeye fan. He was an active member of The Ohio State Alumni Association.
Roy was humble and selfless. His simple pleasure was a doughnut or piece of pie. He had a servant's heart, and was eager to lend a helping hand. Roy was a man of faith, and regularly attended the Louisville Christian Church. He was employed by Zurich Insurance Group, and also raised field crops and steers on Miller Farms with his son, Steve. He loved nature and being outdoors, taking the family out to eat, and visits to his alma mater. His children and grandchildren were his pride and joy, he was never too busy to spend time with them. He was a strong advocate of their education, and passionate supporter of their participation in sports. The legacy of his gentle spirit, and the core values he instilled in them will live on. He was Papa.
Roy is survived by a daughter and son-in-law, Melisa and Michael Libertore, his son, Steven R. Miller, and their mother, Charlotte Miller; granddaughter Caitlyn and Joe Neff; grandsons, Clay Libertore and fiancé Anna Bauhof; Christopher Libertore; and great-grandson, Cash Daniel Neff; his sisters and brothers-in-law, Helen and Bill Ruch, Elnor and Larry Miller, Donna and David Wilson, Chester Miller and several nieces and nephews.

The family would like give special thanks to Joscelyn Greaves for her many years of medical care and friendship to Roy.
