Arthur Daniel “Danny” Miller, of Cumberland, Kentucky, passed away unexpectedly on January 1, 2024, at Parkwest Medical Center in Knoxville, Tennessee. He was the son of the late Arthur and Betty Walters Miller.
He was retired from the United States Military after serving his country proudly for over 23 years in both the Marines and Army. Danny was a Master Electrician by occupation, a Master Scuba Diver, having received many accolades for various dives all over the world. He was a Shriner and a 33rd degree Mason of the Scottish Rite. He received the President’s Hundred Tab for being a skilled marksman by the Civilian Marksmanship Program. He found peace in gardening, hunting, fishing, going to the lake, grilling for family and friends, watching Fox News and Tennessee Football. He was known for pranking and joking around all the time. He loved making people laugh. He achieved so many things in his life, but being a grandfather was the one he enjoyed the most. He loved his family and had one of the biggest caring hearts. He was always helping people who were less fortunate and kept that part of his life private. He did not want any recognition. During the beginning of Winter months, he would go buy hundreds of warm sleeping bags and pass out to the homeless in different areas. He made sure to pay it forward in life. He believed in second chances and always gave others the benefit of the doubt. He was a very opinionated person and spoke his mind plainly with no room for miscommunication. He lived life on his own accord and made no apologies. He was always willing to give a kind uplifting word to people that were stricken with a terminal illness or disease. He took special gifts and visited them often as encouragement to keep fighting. He was a strong pillar in the community and in our lives, his absence will forever be felt.
He is also preceded in death by his son, John Bruhin, grandson, Zane Bruhin, sisters, Lynn Atkins and Barbara Martin, a father figure that he looked up to, James Perry Bullock.
He leaves to cherish his memory, his life partner, Gwen Bullock Blair of Cumberland, Kentucky, sons, Jason (Shaunda) Miller of Odessa, Florida, Arthur Daniel (Rebecca) Miller, II of Murphy, North Carolina, Tyler (Dr. Marye Margarette) Blair of Cumberland, Kentucky, daughter, Kimberly (Michael) Anderson of Powell, Tennessee, brothers, Richard (Terri) Miller of Orange Park, Florida, Everette (Janice) Miller of Jacksonville, Florida, sisters, Reaunette (John) Huff of Karns, Tennessee, Mary (David) Keck of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Debra (Chuck) Clark of Powell, Tennessee, grandchildren, Jacob, Garrett, Shelby Anderson, Jeyla Miller, Titus Ephraim Forsteri Blair, John and Noah Bruhin, great grandchildren, Eli and Margo Anderson, a lady he considered as a mother, Alberta Bullock, a host of other relatives and friends.
