James C. Miller, Jr.

James C. Miller, Jr.

February 18, 1965 ~ July 24, 2020

James C. “Jim” Miller, Jr., aged 55, of Palm Beach Co., FL, formerly of Wilmington, DE, passed away suddenly on July 24, 2020.

Jim, “Jimmy,” was a force to be reckoned with. He was a lover of Life, greatly loved and adored by all. He grew up first in Phila., PA, then Wilmington DE until 1988 when he entered U.S. Navy Aviation Officer Candidate School. Being a naval pilot was his biggest dream and achievement. As a lieutenant, he flew helicopters all over the world, gathering countless friends with his big heart.

Jim loved his family and friends, music, Heineken, being on the water, pulling pranks and giving nicknames. He was an Eagles fan to the core. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

Jim was beloved son, brother, uncle and boyfriend. He is survived by his parents James C. “Bud” Miller Sr. (“Rainman”) and Dolores “Lori” Miller, (“Lali”) of Wilmington DE, his sister Kristin “Dweeba” Rodgers and her partner Steve “Weeba” Weber, nephews Logan “Woobie” and Landon ”Panda” Weber, step-nephews Hunter “Little Muscles” and Jared Weber, all of Forest Hills NY, and girlfriend Debbie “Puddles” Lewis of Palm Beach Co. FL.

A service to honor Jim‘s life and memory will be held at a later date in Wilmington DE when it is safe to gather. As a dedicated serviceman and veteran, if you would like to make a donation in Jim’s name, please do so at www.volunteer.va.gov.

To my Love!
Each day I miss you more
As I see your picture on my phone screensaver. I picture you pulling up in the Benz as I say to myself “ that’s right he’s mines”
I miss the special way you say good morning too me. You even text me while we’re side by side just to make my laugh.
I miss the closeness that we shared, holding hands in public, opening doors for me, what a gentleman and so many other kind hearted things. We never missed a day or night without saying “Love You”
You were so proud to tell everyone “I love me some chocolate queen” haha!
I find myself looking back hourly, too so many happy times and yet
I can’t seem to accept the fact your gone. You said you would never leave me…
I can feel you in my heart, my taught, your scent is still with me. from time to time I hear you laughing while calling out my nickname “puddles” just So I can laugh…..
My days will be long and my nights will be quiet!!!
Love you always……
until we meet again

My condolences and prayers are with you in your time of grief. I have many memories of Jim that go back to high-school at Sallies including playing on the soccer team together. We had a great time after our first year in college when we spent 2 weeks in Hawaii in May of ’84. Jim was a great guy to be around and I was deeply saddened when I heard of his passing.

Well when Scott McKellar messaged me that you had passed I was simply stunned. Just too soon Jim. But God bless God – He has His own plans. It was great getting to know you at Sallies! My deepest condolences to Jimmy’s entire family and friends. And thank you for your service Jim – I am so happy to know that you fulfilled your dream of flying – and you got to do it with our terrific United States Navy! May you rest in peace in the Gold and White section of heaven.

Mr. and Mrs. Miller and Kristin, I’m so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. What a beautiful obituary. There’s no doubt that Jim will continue to live large in my memories of our years together at IHM and Sallies.
