Brian Allen Miller

October 21, 1971 — October 19, 2023


Papa was the name he was known by the best, but he was born Brian Allen Miller on October 21st, 1971.  He was born to Rebecca H. and Melvin M. in Salt Lake City, Utah. At the age of 17 he met his best friend Jonnie and their love had been a constant since. They started their family in the Salt Lake Valley before moving and settling in Grantsville.

Brian was a strong worker, an amazing provider for his family, and a dedicated employee at ACE for 27 years. He worked hard for his family, and we are so grateful to him for it. 

His hilarious personality made it easy for his wife and kids to pull pranks on him, and it was normal to laugh with Papa until your cheeks ached and your eyes were full of tears.  Goodness, what joy he brought to us all. 

Brian loved things with a fierceness, whether that be the great outdoors, fishing, hunting, drag racing, but more than anything he loved being around his grand babies.

The grand babies could be found smiling, laughing, and learning a few naughty things including silly little phrases to funny little tricks, or how to scare their parents! These moments with Papa have given us some of our best memories.

We are forever grateful for Brian and how he showed us how much he cared. Our family loves and misses his warm smile, affectionate hugs, and long conversations. To his silly laugh and funniest jokes, we will miss him endlessly.

Brian passed on October 19th, at the age of 51, unexpectedly at home.
