Stanley “Ronnie” Rhinehart Miller, Jr., 68, devoted husband of 46 years to Debbie Miller, went home to be with his Lord and Savior surrounded by his loving family at home on Friday, April 23, 2021.
Born in Spokane, WA, he was a son of the late Stanley Miller, Sr., and Evelyn Cooper Smith.
Ronnie was a devout member of Forestville Baptist Church and was well known for playing the role of Jesus in the Easter program for 18 years.
He was quite the social butterfly and was always making others laugh. He was a prankster and could always convince others to join in on the mischief. He enjoyed being active, playing golf, traveling to the beach, riding his Harley, and spending time on Lake Hartwell with his family and friends.
He was a diesel mechanic manager for 45 years and was the proud owner of Miller’s Mobile Service.
One of his most cherished moments was the day he met his wife, Debbie, while cruising Main Street in his 65′ Chevrolet Chevelle. Debbie asked him if it had a Canadian Block in it, and he was smitten from that point on. They dated for five years before they got married and started their family. He was an amazing son, brother, husband, father, “papa”, uncle, and friend who will be missed by many.
In addition to his adoring wife Debbie, Ronnie’s legacy will continue on with his two wonderful sons, Jared Miller and wife, Jessica of Greer, and Zachary Miller of Greenville; his precious granddaughter, Emery Elisa Miller; two sisters, Pamela Omdsom, of Dacusville, and Priscilla Styles and husband, Regan of Travelers Rest; three brothers, Johnny Miller of Greenville, Rolland Miller and Alan Miller, both of Florida; sister-in-law/partner in crime, Pamela Snyder and husband, David of Easley; 15 nieces and nephews; stepmother, Alana Miller; and his faithful pups, Dixie Brown Dog and Charlie Brown Miller.
In addition to his parents, Ronnie was preceded in death by his sister, Beverly Miller Cowart; and his two brothers, Ricky Waters and Mark Miller.
A public visitation will be held Sunday, May 2, 2021 from 2:00 p.m. until 2:45 p.m. at Forestville Baptist Church. A service to celebrate his life will follow at 3:00 p.m. with Reverend Dusty Martin and Reverend Jimmy Cagle officiating. A live stream of the service will be available through Forestville Baptist Church’s website. All attendees are strongly encouraged to wear masks and follow CDC guidelines on social distancing.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Forestville Baptist Church Drama Team, 2 Old McElhaney Rd, Greenville, SC 29617.
