Calvin E. Miller left this earth on May 6, 2020 at the age of 74 after a short struggle with cancer. Cal was born in Midland, MI on July 23, 1945 to the late Perry and Clista Miller. Cal was the last of 6 children. He will be sadly missed by his wife of 55 years Laura K (Rogers) Miller. They were united in marriage on February 27, 1965.
During his lifetime Cal demonstrated the same hard working and dedication he had with his family at his employment. Cal started at Dow Chemical Company in May of 1966 and remained there unwavering until his retirement in February of 2001. During his retirement, Cal, along with his wife, fully enjoyed hunting, golfing and spending time with their family. He also attended Our Lady of Grace Church in Sanford for 55 years. Cal was a driver for the County Connections from 2013 until present. Family members looked to Cal for help and his giving nature and he will be greatly missed.
