Paul was born September 21, 1938, to Richard and Gladys King Miller in Weir, Mississippi. He was a member of Calvary Baptist Church where he was actively involved until his health prevented his participation. He exhibited his strong work ethic by devoting 42 years to Taylor Machine Works in the Quality Control Department. Paul enjoyed hunting, fishing, and just “piddling” in his shop and around the house. It was said that “he lived his life in such a way that he made sure he had no enemies. We could all learn a lot from this man’s life. He was honest to a fault and strong until the end.”

Paul is survived by his loving wife of 35 years Glenda “Bunton” Miller of Louisville; and his children: Paul E. Miller and wife Joyce of Atlanta, Georgia; Tina Miller of Tampa, Florida; Richard S. Miller also of Tampa, Florida; Daryl Edmonds and wife Beth of Louisville; and Becky Brown and husband Gary of Caledonia, Mississippi. One of his greatest joys was being “PaPaw” to his nine grandchildren: George Miller, Charles Miller, Bennet Womble, Jacob Freedman, David Miller, Rachel Womack, Cole Harrison, Carley Meisenholder, and Caleb Brown; and his seven great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister Sarah (Johnny) Trussell in addition to his nieces, nephews, and friends. Paul is preceded in death by his grandson Justin Dickerson; his parents; and his brother Freeman Miller.

Serving as pallbearers are Caleb Brown, Jacob Freedman, Cole Harrison, Jimmy Hudspeth, Michael Womack, and Bennet Womble.
