Details for Paul D. Miller
April 11, 1935 - February 28, 2018
Janesville, WI -- Paul D. Miller, age 82, of Janesville, WI, left his earthly home to join the heavenly chorus, on February 28, 2018. Paul’s pain and suffering are gone, and he is now worshiping at the feet of Jesus. One of his many favorite songs was “Look for Me at Jesus' Feet”. Paul was born on April 11, 1935 in Rice Lake, WI, the son of Melvin and Martha (Eikamp) Miller. He graduated from Cornell, WI, and later received his bachelor’s and master’s at UW Whitewater in Elementary Education. Paul taught 5th/6th grade for over 34 years in the Janesville School System, including time at Harrison, Jefferson, and Marshall Middle School. He retired in January of 1998 from his teaching career. Although Paul officially left the classroom, he always took opportunity to be a teacher. Paul married Shirley Smith on October 14, 1956. She preceded him in death on February 3, 1996. They raised their 4 boys, and enjoyed many happy times of fishing and hunting together. He was warmly received into Annette (Kallman) Hegle’s family when they married on August 10, 1997. Paul was an active member at Bethel Baptist Church, where he served faithfully in many capacities. He loved to sing in harmony with his sweetheart, Annette. If Paul wasn’t singing, then he was telling a joke or an exaggerated story.
Survivors include his wife, Annette Miller; his brother, Russell Miller; and his sons: Kurt (Linda) Miller, Dan Miller, Mike (Rebecca) Miller, Robert Miller, Gregg (Janine) Hegle, Scott (Debra) Hegle, Brent (Sonya) Hegle, Jon (Jennifer) Hegle. Paul was very proud and happy to have 22 grandchildren. They are: Tim (Jennifer) Miller, Emily (David) Schultz, Andrew Miller, Lauren Miller, Amanda Miller, Madeline Miller, Stephanie Miller, Jaimee Miller, Bailey Miller, Janalyn (Noah) Eisele, Travis (Cassie) Hegle, Amelia (Curtis) Rempel, Tyler Hegle, Michaela Hegle, Serena Hegle, Nathaniel Hegle, Lexi (James) Lima, Ali Hegle, Austin Hegle, Abrianna Hegle, Alayna Hegle, Andrew Hegle; and four great-grandchildren: Abel, Jude, Logan and Raelyn. In addition to his first wife, Shirley, he was preceded in death by his parents; a brother, Gene; and sister, Ruth Ann.
Funeral services are at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 10, 2018 at Bethel Baptist Church, 3300 Mt. Zion Avenue, Janesville with Pastor Jason Eddy officiating.
