    • Alton Hugh Miller

      Alton €œHugh€? Miller, 58, a resident of 4224 Highway 70 West, Lot 31, passed away at Duke Hospital in the early morning hours of Saturday, December 6th. In 2007, Hugh was diagnosed with lung cancer. He was not finished with his battle when he was taken from the family from a sudden heart attack.

      Hugh was born June 7th, 1950 in Sandy Creek, New York. Of 8 children, Hugh was the third child of Ida and Floyd (Bud) Miller, Jr. He grew up and went to school in the Sandy Creek area. He and his brothers were the first to start a wrestling team at Sandy Creek Central School. After graduation, Hugh went on to pursue certificates from the local community college in various construction trades.

      In 1973 Hugh married Janet €œJan€? Marie Francis. Together they had 3 children; two boys (Shawn Matthew and Jamie Allan) and one girl (Heather Marie). Hugh was a loving father and best friend to his family.

      Hugh loved the outdoors from fishing to hunting to bird watching and boating. He was a master carpenter. Working with his hands all his life, he was a strong man, who you would remember just from a handshake. But the strength of his handshake wasn€™t all you would remember from Hugh. Hugh was a wealth of information and loved teaching his grandchildren as they grew. He loved to listen to Johnny Cash and watch John Wayne movies. Hugh had a quick wit and laughable sense of sarcasm, and a nickname for everybody he met.

      During Hugh€™s life he was a volunteer fireman for Lacona (NY) Fire Department, and a member of the American Legion in Parish, NY and Durham, NC.

      Hugh was predeceased by: his parents - Floyd William & Ida Doane Miller and a brother, Lawrence Edward Miller.

      Hugh is survived by his wife Janet (Jan) Miller; sons and their wives: Shawn & Brooke, Jamie & JoAnne; daughter & her husband: Heather & Joel; grandchildren: Jessica, Daniel, Kaitlyn, & Isaac; brothers and their wives: F. William Miller, II & Patricia; Richard & Sheila; Cullen & Holly; Wendell & Cheryl; all of Sandy Creek, NY; sisters: Constance & her husband Buzzy Scufka and Beverly; also both of Sandy Creek, NY; sister-in-laws: Lydia A. Miller of Belleville, NY; spousal in-laws: Dan Francis, Doug Francis, and Matt Francis and Shelly Lannie; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.

      Memorial services will be held at a later date.
