Clifford A. Miller, Sr., 66, was peacefully welcomed into the kingdom of God on December 30, 2020. He was born January 20, 1954 in Wadsworth, Ohio. He was an assembler for BWXT and was active in collecting and distributing Christmas hams to the needy. He came to know Christ at a young age and has continued to serve the Lord. Cliff was a member of Kenmore Church of the Nazarene and involved with driving the church bus and the Nightingale Compassionate Ministries. He was a great storyteller and loved telling his “bear” stories. Cliff was a kind and compassionate man who made sure everyone’s needs were met before his own. He taught his children valuable life lessons that made them successful and was very proud of them.

John and I both were deeply heart broken to learn of Cliff's passing. We have loved him since we first met him as well as his lovely wife Joyce and his entire family. His ornery self always had a way to make us smile often without saying 1 word...it was his mischievous smile. He will be deeply missed but we will see him again. He is healed and in the presence of Jesus. I can only imagine!

So sorry for the loss of Cliff. I remember how much he loved to cook at the Nightingale Ministry monthly community meals and we would look forward to some of his stories and had some laughs along with those stories. May God give you peace in your heart at this difficult time. Will see him again in heaven.

What a great loss not only to the Miller family but to anybody that had the privilege to have known Cliff. I worked with Cliff at BWXT and just being around him everyday was real joy. If anybody needed help Cliff was the first in line to volunteer. My friend you will be greatly missed in this old world but I know you are resting in heaven with that big old smile on your face.
