Obituary

Obituary for Robin S. Miller

Robin Miller, 73, of New Holland and Milton, DE, passed away Sunday evening at Lancaster General Hospital after a gallant fight with bone cancer.
Robin and his wife, Lou Ann Campanaro Miller, were married for 47 years.
He was born in Pottstown to Irving Clyde Miller and Evelyn Stephens Miller. His childhood was spent in Graterford and he graduated in 1965 from Schwenksville High School. He graduated from Ursinus College in 1969 with a B.A. in English. Following graduation, he was drafted and served two years in the Army. He was a chaplain's assistant while stationed at Fort Hood, Texas.
After an Honorable Discharge, he was employed as a proofreader at Science Press, Ephrata, and later an editor. He worked there over 30 years. Following that he worked at New Holland Concrete for a few years until retirement.
Robin was a very active member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Lancaster, where he sang in the choir, taught Sunday School, served on the Nominating Committee, was an usher and helped in the kitchen with the Hospitality Committee. He served on the New Holland Park Board and was a member of the New Holland Area Historical Society. Robin was involved with his children's lives and volunteered for the organizations his children participated in such as scouts, swim team, little league, and softball. He enjoyed being active with swimming, tennis, skiing, biking and the beach. He also was good at woodworking and handyman projects.
Surviving besides his wife is a son, Brett R. Miller of Los Angeles, CA; a daughter, Heather Flood, wife of Christopher Flood, Lewes, DE and three grandchildren; a brother, Dr. Lee C. Miller, husband of Joanne Miller of Harrisburg, three sister-in-laws, Carol Kessel, wife of Russ Kessel of Gettysburg, Erika Heaney, wife of Kenneth Heaney of Southern Pines, NC and Rebecca Colgan, wife of John Colgan of Gettysburg; three nephews, Chris Miller and family of Downington, Jason Miller and family of Media, Josh Heaney of Southern Pines, NC and a niece, Alivia Colgan of Gettysburg.
With humor, wit and wisdom, he faced the World. Robin was a kind, loving and gentle man who will be missed by all who knew him. A private family service will be held at Lewes, DE and when safe for family and friends, there will be a Celebration of Life at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Lancaster.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Unitarian Church, his spiritual home for 47 years.

Sorry to hear of Robin’s passing. I worked with him at Canteen Vending / Commissary Division as fellow truck drivers. He trained me on his route when he moved on to New Holland Concrete. Travel safely my friend!

I was working at Science Press when Robin showed up on our doorstep. Robin was in the proof department and I was a typist. We would talk occasionally but it was when I transferred to the copy prep department, where Robin was working, that I really got to know him. When we were allowed to play Christmas music Robin would bust me for playing Neal Diamond. Robin always said “Why do you like a Jew singing Christmas songs?” Robin saved my sanity when we were losing our jobs. We were told the week of Thanksgiving 1999 that we would lose our job. If we stayed to March when the merger was complete we would get an extra week severance pay for every two weeks we worked. It was so hard to do your job and there was so many times I wanted to tell people off. Robin was there to tell me to hang in there for the extra severance pay. I lost track of Robin till one day my husband, Bill Conrad and I, saw him and Lou Ann and are friendship continued. We shared dinner at German Restaurants, Rainbow Dinner Theater and Dutch Apple where we enjoyed our last show on Feb. 8, 2020 before COVID-19. We last saw Robin on June 1,2020 when we drove him to a doctor appointment. We will really miss his scent of humor. Love to Lou Ann and family. Bonnie Blevins and Bill Conrad.

I grew up with Robin in Graterford and played on Little League teams one which his dad coached . We were school classmates for 12 years and both
graduated from Schwenksville HS in
1965. He was a nice friend growing up in a small town. So sorry to hear of his death.
