MILFORD - Jeffrey S Miller, originally of Natick, passed away peacefully at his home on Sunday morning, August 12, 2018. Jeff had been battling Alzheimer’s for the last several years. He is survived by his loving wife Charlene Hall Miller, his children Nick Miller (Kathleen Miller), Richard Laney (Samantha Laney), Allison Mercier (Matt Mercier), Timothy MIller and Peter Helmuth, his 11 grandchildren Mackenzie, Kayla, Matthew, Kelsey, Lola, Jackson, Gavin, Braeden, Brielle, Maeve, and Cameron. Also, his siblings Ron Miller (Janice Miller), Gail Langhart, Marion Hamilton, and Laurie Kelly (Martin Kelly). Jeffrey is predeceased by his parents Bruce and Grace Miller, two of his brothers Carl Miller and Bruce Miller, his nephew Randy Leonard and his daughter-in-law Melissa Miller.

Jeff proudly served his country as a Marine during the Vietnam war. He went on to earn two Master's degrees from Babson and Bentley College before marrying his high school sweetheart Charlene and settling into a long-term career at Polaroid. Jeff devoted himself to his children and family. He had an amazing sense of humor and that was just part of what made him the very best grampy to his 11 grands. They were the light of his life!

Music was a huge part of Jeff’s life, he had a natural ear and talent for it. He traveled everywhere with his guitar and had also learned to play the cello in honor of his mother Grace. Jeff was considered a “rock star” at Faith Community Church where he was a member and a teacher and was able to touch many lives. In his later years Jeff attended The Community Covenant Church and was part of their worship team on Sunday mornings. Jeff was a guy who valued relationships, old and new. He always looked for opportunities to talk with people and hear their story. He would do anything he could to keep a smile on the face of the people he loved, often at his own expense! Jeffrey’s legacy is one of faith, love, joy and laughter. He will be deeply missed but forever remembered.

A memorial service will be held for Jeffrey on Saturday August 25th at 11:00 a.m. at Faith Community Church in Hopkinton. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Callanan Cronin Funeral Home, Hopkinton.
