Knoxville - Robert E. (Bobby) Miller transitioned to his final destination, Tuesday, December 24, 2019, at his home in the company of his loving wife.

Bobby was born, March 10, 1934, in Knoxville, Tennessee, as the only son of Willia Beatrice Moore Miller. He graduated from Austin East High School in Knoxville in 1951. After graduation, he joined the Armed Forces of the United States from 1951 - 1953.
