Roger Keith Miller, 62, of Pueblo, Colo., passed away August 10, 2006. He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Mary Lee Miller; and three daughters and sons-in-law, Michelle and Scott Hoeft of Santa Fe, N.M.; Brenda and Bruce Kurtt of Fresno, Calif.; and Tricia and Brant Houston of Denver. Roger was blessed with four wonderful grandchildren whom he loved dearly, Katherine, Jack, Caroline and Grace. He is also survived by his siblings, Jim Miller, Joan Teeters, Juanita Conover and Patricia King and numerous nephews, nieces, lifelong friends and colleagues. The youngest of five children, Roger was born in Las Animas, Colo. on January 27, 1944, to Glenn and Viola Miller. He moved to Pueblo with Mary in February 1965 where he worked as a switchman for the Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad for 28 years. In 1976, they started, owned and operated Miller Farm Equipment for 30 years. He was a special person in the way of loving his work, and took great pride in making his company a place that was his own and assisting those who needed special equipment for their farms and ranches throughout the west and southwest. He spent 30 years as the most devoted Denver Bronco's fan around and attended every home game since 1976. Music was a huge part of Roger's life, as he spent hours and hours listening and buying every type of music he could get his hands on. He was well-known for his music trivia and could challenge almost anyone to a match about it. He also enjoyed golf, sports, laughing and having fun, shopping, traveling, learning new things, visiting new places and spending time with his family. He will be dearly missed by his family, friends and all who knew him. A memorial service will be held 4 p.m. on Tuesday, August 15th, at the Pueblo Union Depot in historic downtown Pueblo. Memorial contributions may be made in Roger's name to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research through Montgomery & Steward Funeral Directors.
