He is survived by his beloved wife of 48 years, Julianne Temples Miller of Statesboro; and a beloved sister, Wendy Miller of Winter Haven.
A longtime resident of Keystone Heights, Florida, Dr Miller moved to Statesboro full-time after retiring from the Bradford County school system as director of information services. He also served as an assistant assistant in Alachua County for over 40 years.
Steve was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, which guarantees that he will be a Red Sox fan forever. He moved with his family, father Max and mother, Thelma, to the Palm Beach area, where he graduated from Palm Beach Gardens High School, where he was active in sports.
He received a Business Administration degree from the University of Florida in 1967 and a Masters in Education in 1974. He then obtained his PhD. in mathematics.
Steve worked in education throughout his career starting in 1967, first as a teacher in Bradford County, then headed Information Services for the entire County of St. Johns, Clay County, and then Bradford County again.
He fondly remembers the thousands of students he influenced and inspired over the years and his colleagues who knew he was a strong leader, but still a gentleman.
Steve had many interests. He never stopped serving the community and loved being the Auxiliary Sheriff’s Assistant for decades. It has kept its policing standards up to date, even until this year in Alachua County.
He has always loved traveling and after his retirement he and his wife, Julie, enjoyed the trip of a lifetime to Paris in 2019.
Above all, Steve loved the world and dreamed of peace.
