He was born on Sept. 2, 1921 in Rochester, the son of Phill and Velma (Horton) Miller.

On June 8, 1946, in Rochester, he married Lois Edna Talbott.

Together they had four children, C. Richard and wife Joyce Miller, Kansas City, Mo., Susan and husband Dan Garpow, Rochester, Phil Miller, Macy, and Dale Miller and companion Betsy Wheeler, Crosby, Texas. He was the proud grandparent of 16 grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild. He is survived by sisters-in-law, Betty Miller and Irene Miller, both of Rochester.

Carl proudly served with the United States Army during World War II with the 575th Ambulance Motor Company in England, France, Luxemburg, Belgium, Germany and Czechoslovakia. He drove an ambulance to transport wounded soldiers to rear hospitals, day and night driving over all types of terrains and under enemy fire. He served 21 months overseas.

Returning to the states, Carl worked as a truck driver and carpenter most of his life, helping to build numerous homes and apartments in the Logansport area.

Throughout his life, he enjoyed playing baseball and softball. He played baseball with his fellow servicemen overseas after the war and continued playing baseball and softball as a civilian in local leagues for many years. Carl and his wife Lois enjoyed traveling around to various craft shows and loved to support their grandchildren in all of their activities.
