Robert “Bob” Miller, 75, of Columbia, Missouri went to be with the Lord, our Father, on September 15, 2016.



Bob was born on December 14, 1940. He grew up in Iowa and loved spending time on the farm. He graduated from Missouri Valley High School and then continued his education at Northwest Missouri State where he received his BS in Agriculture & Physical Education. Bob went on to receive a Masters degree in Recreation & Community Development from the University of Missouri-Columbia. Bob enjoyed a long career with the University of Missouri Extension. During his 35+ year career, Bob served on various committees, boards, and received numerous recognitions and awards.



Bob was a very devoted and loyal husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. He loved to work on old classic cars and restored many old cars to top notch condition. Bob enjoyed reading, going on float trips, spending time at the Lake of the Ozarks, traveling with family and also sharing a cup of coffee and stories with the Pierpont Coffee Club. Bob truly appreciated the beauty in others and in nature. He adored his supportive wife Jean, who stayed by his side through his long reoccurring battle with cancer. Bob was an active member of Olivet Christian Church for over 25 years during which he served several terms as a deacon, board member and helped with other committees and events. He had such an amazing relationship with the Lord and proved this by the way he lived his daily life. There is no doubt in our minds that the angels are celebrating his arrival in heaven!



Bob leaves his faithful loving wife, Jean Ward-Miller; his daughters, Lisa (Mark) Fuhrman, Cary (John) Hughes, Becky (Greg) Choate, Jacquie Ward, Julie Ward and partner Stephanie Verhine, and a brother, Richard (Mary) Miller. He will also be greatly missed by ten grandchildren, three great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.



Bob was preceded in death by his parents, Carl & Erma Miller, and brother Marvin Miller.



The family of Bob wishes to extend our sincere thanks to Dr. Jack Colwill at University of Missouri Health Care for his constant support and care for Bob throughout the last 25 years. The family also appreciates the support from family, friends, and neighbors for their care and support during Bob’s illness.



In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made in Bob’s name to Olivet Christian Church, 1991 S. Olivet Rd., Columbia, MO 65201. A Memorial Service to celebrate Bob’s life will be held at Olivet Christian Church on Saturday, October 15th, 2016 at 11:00 am.
