Ray Lewis Miller

March 21, 1934 — October 9, 2022

Ray Lewis Miller was born March 21, 1934 in Hyrum, Utah. He was the fourth out of six children born of Carroll Hiram and Elizabeth Gittens Miller. Ray is survived by his sister La Wana, brother Ronald Jay, and preceded in death by sister (baby), brothers Carroll Eugene, and Randall Dean. Ray lived in Hyrum and attended Lincoln Elementary School, South Cache High School, and Utah State University. He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served his Weekly Temple Sessions, Testimony, and High Priest callings.

When Ray was 8 years old he helped his family on the farm. He became one the best workers and he knew it, he was very proud of that fact. He would feed the animals and drive the trucks back and forth. The farm work was done in the spring, summer, and fall. He didn’t have enough time to leave home or go on trips. While in college, he thought about leaving the farm and going off to California to get a job. He had friends that decided to do just that, but they all returned after the summer was over.

In the wintertime when Ray was young, around the age of 12 or 14, he often went sailing with his Brother-in-law Len whom owned a boat. He also learned to ski with Len and Sister LaWana.

Ray married Ruth Ann Morse on June 27, 1955 in the Logan Temple, with a reception in the yard of the Morse’s home celebrated with many friends and family. While living in Cache Valley, he looked for a job, but it was difficult. At Christmas time the couple were invited to California to celebrate the holiday. They decided to stay and Ray got two jobs working 7 days a week. They got an apartment with relatives close by. After three and a half years, Dad Miller told them to “Come Home” to work on another farm he had purchased. They returned with son, Scott where they built a home.

Ray got a job in Ogden, Utah as a Machinist, for Marquardt Co. The drive from home to work was far and soon became too much. He then got a job at Thiokol Co. for the next 37 years where he retired. During his retirement, Ray spent a lot of time with his family going on vacations and staying at the cabin. Ray had many hobbies that he enjoyed doing with his sons including golf, fishing, hiking, horse riding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, skiing, camping, and backpacking. Ray spent time with his family in Bear Lake every Saturday during the summer time with Scott, Curtis, Julie, and Ruth Anne.

In 2000 Ray and Ruth were asked to be Missionaries at the Joseph Smith Building on the 6th floor. They served there from 2002-2003. It was a very special opportunity for the both.

They had three wonderful children: Scott, Julie, Curtis and the best grandchildren and great great grand children. He was preceded in death by Ruth in August 2022.
