  13. Edward Alan Miller, age 63 of Ridgway, PA died Wednesday, July 17, 2019 at Penn-Highlands DuBois Hospital Born Feb 20, 1956 in Chicago, IL, He was the son of the late Clarence and Elaine Jemison Miller. He is survived by his siblings, David Miller of Westminster, CO, Dr. William Miller of Oakland, CA, and Rebecca Miller, of Thornton, CO. Edward Miller lived a life of adventure. In his youth, he played basketball for the local Methodist Church and for his Jr. High and High School teams. His teammates included his younger brother David, and another mate, Dave Corzine, who went on the play for the Chicago Bulls. His love of sports included a passion for fishing in Shell Lake, WI. His grandparents Willard and Myrtle had a cabin on the lake, and he and his brothers would spend summers at the lake being spoiled, catching fish, woodworking, and enjoying the beauty of WI. On July 20, 1969, they spent the evening gazing at the moon, his grandfather skeptical of the event, but the boys were captivated by the lunar landing. Ed continued to visit Shell Lake up to the end of his life with his brothers over the years, passing his fishing skills onto the new generation of his brother David's children and grandchildren. His sister, Rebecca, who is 14 years younger, was not a participant by choice. Instead, a love of art, music, writing, and spirituality was shared between them. An avid traveler, Ed lived all over the world, including Edinburgh, Scotland, the birthplace of his ancestors. In Colorado, he was a member of the Pinehurst Country Club, and was fortunate to attend the Super Bowl in 1985 to watch the Bears. This joy was later matched by watching the Cubs win the World Series. Later in life, he pursued his art of photography, living on a ranch in Canon City, Colorado but longed to return to the quiet of the Midwest. He found peace and solace at his new home in Ridgway, with his love, Christine, enjoying the quiet evenings, feeding his birds, growing plants, and watching the fireflies. There will be no public visitation and service will be held at the convenience of the family. Arrangements are in the care of Baronick Funeral Home and Crematorium, Inc.
