Robert (Rob) Olan Miller, 46, formerly of Orofino

      Robert (Rob) Olan Miller passed away Monday, Oct. 21, 2013, as a result of a tragic accident three days prior to his passing in Moscow.

     Rob was born Sept. 8, 1967, in Spokane, WA to George and Julie Miller. The Miller family moved to Orofino in 1970, and Rob completed all 12 school years there and went on to college at the University of Idaho, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts in biology and his master's in environmental health. Rob was employed at UI as an industrial hygienist at the time of his death.

     Rob was a gentle soul with many close friends and passions. He particularly loved golf, skiing and fishing. But his primary love was for his two girls, Sarah, age 10, and Emma, age 5. He was an avid Maniac and Vandals fan.

     He is survived by his two daughters; his father, George R. Miller; his mother, Julie Chenoweth; brothers, Ron Miller and Rick Miller; his sister, Holly Hanson; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. He will be missed while we remember him with broken hearts.

     A celebration of his life will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday at the Orofino Golf and Country Club. ________________________________________
