EDMOND —     Gary Lynn Miller, 67, of Edmond, Okla., died unexpectedly Wednesday, May 15, 2013 at his favorite place on Grand Lake. He was born December 7, 1945, in Oklahoma City, Okla.

    Gary graduated from Del City High School in 1964, and proudly served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1965–1967. He then began his long career in the transportation/trucking field. He drove for American Farmlines and spent 17 years with TG&Y in Edmond as a driver and then as transportation director.  He transitioned to transportation director and assistant warehouse director at C.R. Anthony’s in Oklahoma City for 10 years. He proudly finished his career spending 14 happy years as fleet manager at Gemini Coatings in El Reno and retired in July of 2012.

    With his wonderful sense of humor, caring nature and kind ways, he was a positive influence on all those around him. Gary loved his wife and family above all else and would do anything for them. He was a constant source of strength, wisdom and advice for those of us that needed it.  He cherished the relationships made in his career and was always just a phone call away for his truck drivers, no matter what time night or day.  He will be monumentally missed, more than words can express.

    Gary is preceded in death by his parents, Gus and Dorothy Miller.

    He is survived by his best friend and wife of 30 years, Louise Miller of Edmond; his children, Shonda Miller of Plano, Texas, Lucas Miller and wife Melissa of Arlington, Texas, Robin LePage and husband Philip of Claremore, Okla., Jennifer Chase of Edmond, Justin Chase and wife Renee of Miami, Okla., and six grandchildren, Roman and Ava Thorton of Plano, Jordan LePage of Norman, Brenden LePage of Claremore, and Garrett and Jaron Chase of Miami.  He is also survived by his sisters, Linda Shive and husband Gere of Del City; Paula Conrady and husband Terry of Enid, and their respective families.

    Viewing with the family will be 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, May 21 at Matthews Funeral Home, 601 S. Kelly, in Edmond. Funeral services will be 2 p.m. Wednesday, May 22, at Matthews Funeral Home. Condolence messages may be sent to the family at www.matthewsfuneralhome.com.
