Ken was born September 3, 1927 in Highland Park, MI to Joseph & Sarah (Hummon) Miller. He graduated from Dondero High School in Royal Oak and served with the Merchant Marines from 1945-1947 and the US Air Force during the Korean War, 1950-1954. In between military service, Ken graduated from the American Academy of Horology in Denver, CO, with a focus on watch and clock making.
Ken married Marilyn A. Fireovid on May 19, 1957 in Bridgewater, OH.
Mr. Miller worked at Grice’s and Kelley’s Jewelry, both in Ohio, before opening Miller’s Jewelry in Walkerton, IN in 1957. He operated the store until 1960, when he relocated to Coldwater, purchasing Kiess Jewelry and running the store until his retirement in 1995.
Ken was a man of great faith and an active member of the First Presbyterian Church in Coldwater for almost 60 years. While a member, he served in many capacities; on focus committees, Deacon and a Session Elder. Ken was very active in the Coldwater community and gave back in many ways. He was a 50 year member of the Exchange Club and the Masonic Lodge; served on the Recreation Board, DBA, City Council, Branch Co. Federal Savings and Loan and Monarch Bank Boards and as a Community Health Center Trustee. Ken was a devoted family man, as they were most important in his life, along with his church.

Marilyn and family, I am so very sorry to hear of Ken's passing. Please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. I have so many wonderful memories of him, from our Mackinac Island adventures to choosing my beautiful engagement ring. He always wore a smile on his face and I will remember his kindness and generosity. Peace to you all as you gather to celebrate his life.

Dear Mrs. Miller, Tammy, Eric, and Carrie and their families. Please accept my sympathies. I will always have fond memories of Mr. Miller, he was a great man and will be greatly missed. We will be out of town for his memorial, but will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers.

Marilyn and family, Ken was one of the kindest individuals we've ever known. Every visit to the jewelry was enjoyable because of his friendly manner. He knew everyone by name and gave excellent service. It was fun to travel in Europe with Marilyn and Ken in the summer of 2001. Yes, I'll be the organist as he is ushered in to new life. God's peace to all of you.
