Frank R. Miller was born in Devils Lake, ND, on July 12, 1944, and passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on July 8, 2018, with his family at his bedside in Seattle, Wash. Frank’s final trip to Devils Lake will be Sept. 15. He will be laid to rest with his family. The family would like to invite his friends to his graveside service on this date at 3 p.m. and say a “final farewell” to a wonderful man. Frank grew up in Devils Lake and graduated from St. Mary’s High School in 1963. A short time later he moved to Washington. He always enjoyed going back to Devils Lake to visit with his school friends, but also said he never wanted to live there again – winters were too cold. Frank met his wife, Sue, in 1990 and they married in 1991 and spent the next 27 years enjoying life to its fullest. For their first ten years, they enjoyed touring the country on their Gold Wing motorcycle. Then it was time to get a little more relaxed and they bought a motorhome and again did as much travel as possible. Next they joined a local RV group and met a great bunch of people who enjoyed doing the same thing – camping and sipping wine by the campfire. More favorites included trips to Cabo San Lucas, where he was introduced to a drink called “dirty monkey.” Just loved those. Also enjoyed cruises and those included Alaska, Carribbean, Mexico and Panama Canal. Frank was an avid fan of the Seahawks and was a season ticket holder. He shared the tickets with his stepson, Mike, and when it was Frank’s week for the game tickets he always took his daughter, Dawn, to the games with him. Those were very special days for him. And then, in his spare time (ha ha) he truly enjoyed making Christmas yard decorations from plywood. He had a very full and happy life. Frank loved his kids and grandkids but there seemed to be a special place for little Kaedyn, his great-grandson. He talked about how he wanted to know him better and be a part of his growing up. Frank is survived by; his wife, Sue Miller; two daughters, Dawn Randall and Shannon Miller; son, Rodney Miller; and stepson, Michael Clothier. There are eight grandchildren and one great-grandson.
