Glenn O. Miller Jr.
July 22, 1944 ~ September 13, 2023 (age 79) 79 Years Old
Glenn Oliver Miller, Jr. lost his battle with Leukemia on September 13, 2023 at his home in Glenmoore, Pennsylvania. Glenn is survived by his wife of 58 years, Luciana Taraschi Miller, his sons Seann (Tammy) and Jonathan (Christy) and his younger brother Daniel (Cindy). He is preceded in death by his father Glenn O. Miller, Sr. "Popsy", mother Jayne Kahler Miller "Momsy", and his older sister Bonnie McHenry. Glenn was blessed with six grandchildren, Spencer (Sarah), Taylor, Amelie, Andilusia, Maelle, and Hunter who will miss “Pop Glenn” dearly.
Glenn was born in Darby, PA. on July 22, 1944 and later in life attended Ridley High School, West Chester University, and Villanova University. He proudly served in the United States Army during the Vietnam War as a Specialist 5th Class (SGT/SP5). He continued in civilian service after the war with the Army Corps of Engineers as a Mechanical Engineer and Consultant on projects spanning both coasts of the United States. He was especially proud of his work at the Bonneville Dam on the Columbia River Gorge, Oregon/Washington. His work enabled him to visit Europe, Canada, South America, Mexico, and China to work for major steel companies headquartered in the United States, Italy, England, and Germany.
As a young man he spent summers at Camp Conrad Weiser on South Mountain in Wernersville, Pennsylvania. At camp he would develop life skills that enabled him to help others which would lead to Glenn saving the life of a young boy who got swept into the sea by strong ocean currents. Growing up as a strong swimmer and accomplished wrestler he was always physically fit. Glenn began running marathons later in life and succeeded to qualify for the Boston Marathon which quickly became his favorite race. He was featured in Runner's World Magazine having run the Boston Marathon the year after receiving a bone marrow transplant.
On behalf of Glenn, the family would like everyone to consider contacting “Be The Match Foundation” to donate money, time, or to become a member of the Bone Marrow Registry. It is where Glenn “matched” his donor James who selflessly gave Glenn’s friends and family an extra 13 years of happiness with Glenn.
His family would like to express thanks to all family, friends, hospice workers, emergency workers, and hospital staff who supported Glenn during his battles with cancer through the years and in his last days. Glenn will be laid to rest at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery at a later date.
