Niles Maynard Miller

May 4, 1944 — August 23, 2021

Niles Maynard Miller, age 77, of Liverpool, PA went home to be with his Lord and Savior, Monday, August 23, 2021 at Penn State Holy Spirit Medical Center due from complications from Covid-19.

He was born May 4, 1944 in Hershey, PA to the late Clinton T. and Florence L. (Watts) Miller.

Niles graduated from Central Dauphin High School. Dating on and off since May of 2004, he married Sharon Rutherford Miller on Sept. 24, 2016. They had just settled in to their “forever home” in April of 2021.

Surviving are his sons, Jeff Miller (Connie) of Summerdale, PA and Scott Miller of Marysville, PA; his step-daughter, Stephanie Russell May (Scott) of Duncannon, PA; a sister, Bonnie Ditty (Gary) of Harrisburg, PA; sister-in-law, Ellen Miller, of Harrisburg, PA; a granddaughter, Kayla Miller, of Marysville, PA; step-granddaughters, Julie Cole and Shelby Curl (Levi) of Florida; grandsons, Steve Himes of Millersburg, PA and Ryan Hill (Emmanvelle) of Virginia; and step-great-grandchildren, Nick, Sadie, Emma, Wyatt, and Hayward, all of Florida, who referred to Niles as their “Happy Pappy.” He also had a great-niece, Sue Haverstock, of Dillsburg, PA, whom he loved like a daughter. Niles also leaves behind many nieces and nephews, wonderful friends and extended family.

Niles was preceeded in death by his brother, Wayne Miller; and sisters, Louise Eshleman, Hermione Breckenridge, Ruby Cocklin, Audrey Miller, and Pat Hall.

Niles was a man of great faith who was very active in his church; he also always put others first. He selflessly gave his own time to help others (sometimes at the expense of completing his own tasks and projects). He loved to have picnics and gatherings for family and friends, and he enjoyed any time spent at his son’s cabin. Whether it was just helping out, showing friends around the property, telling stories or hunting, there was always a reason to be in the woods with those he loved. He was an outdoorsman, and he enjoyed playing cards or just sitting and talking with friends and family. He was quite a story teller and he loved to talk (sometimes too much!).

He worked at AM Concrete Associates Corp. with his business partner, Jerry Aldridge. He also worked at Reno Lewis Insurance and then owned/operated Niles Miller Financial Services.

He was a member and Elder of Glenvale Church of God, Marysville, PA. He shared a very special bond and friendship with Larry Hale, pastor of his church. For four years, Niles ran the Knights of the 21st Century, a men’s group within the church, and he also headed the men’s sport group, Fin, Fur and Feather. He was a Crossfire Single Ministries board member for more than ten years before going on to become chairman of the board. Pastor Dave Dormer said, “his leadership was perfect – he got the ministry through some really tough years.” Outside of church, he was a proud NRA member and involved with many other organizations and causes throughout the years.

Visitation will be from 1-3PM on October 9, 2021 at Glenvale Church of God, Marysville. Services will follow at 3PM. The service will be live-streamed on Facebook ( and YouTube ( for those who cannot attend in-person.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions to his church.

The family is asking that if anyone has a photo of themselves with Niles, that you please share by sending a copy to Glenvale Church of God, c/o Luella Hale, 1970 Valley Rd., Marysville, PA 17053.

We, the family of Niles, wish to express our sincere gratitude to each and everyone of you for your many acts of kindness and expressions of love during this difficult time. Thank you and may God bless each of you.
