Edmund Hollis Miller, born July 5, 1923 in Austin, Texas to Emily Maverick and Dr. Edmund Thornton Miller, passed away December 22, 2010. He graduated from the University of Texas in Austin with a BS degree in Ceramic Engineering. Ed was cartoon editor for UT's Texas Ranger Magazine from 1949-1950. He was a member of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity. Ed served as a Staff Sergeant in Patton's Third Army Headquarters War Room, G-2 Section during WWII, where he was a cartographer in Patton's map room. He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal by Gen. George S. Patton and the European Theater with six battle stars. He traveled with the Third Army Headquarters across Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Austria, and Czechoslovakia. In 1951, he was recalled to active service during the Korean War as a Second Lieutenant and served in the Army Security Agency in Germany. Ed loved the Boy Scouts and was a lifetime member of Boy Scout Troop 20 in Austin, Texas. He was always very proud of his Texas heritage, being the great grandson to Mary and Samuel Augustus Maverick, pioneers of Texas. Samuel Augustus Maverick was one of the signers of the Texas Declaration of Independence and it is from him that the word "maverick" was coined. In 1992 at the age of 69, Ed retired from DalTile in Dallas, Texas. After retirement, he loved to be on his computer, continued to play golf and was an avid fisherman. He loved nothing more than spending time at his place at Cedar Creek Lake. He is survived by his wife, Wilma Hoke Miller; son, Edmund H. Miller, Jr.; daughter and son-in-law, Mary and Peter Carlson of Katy, Texas; grandchildren, Matthew and Claire Carlson; sister, Mary Miller Bartholow, numerous nieces and nephews, and his two best friends from childhood, Lew Griffith and Bill Kinney. He is preceded in death by his parents, Emily Maverick and Dr. Edmund Thornton Miller, and sister, Emily Miller Wells. Graveside services will be held at a future date in Austin, Texas.



Ed was very proud of his grandchildren and their accomplishments. He supported their Spartan Band both monetarily and through his attendance to most of their events. Therefore we ask that any memorials to Ed be made to the band's Booster Club.
