Alan Roger Miller, age 71 of Buffalo, Minnesota, passed away on June 1, 2022 from kidney failure while on hospice at Parkview Care Center.

He was born on April 13, 1951 in Redwood Falls, Minnesota to Roger and Dorothy (Bunting) Miller. He grew up in Belview, and graduated from high school there with the class of 1969. Al attended technical school where he received his education as a draftsman. He was employed with Loram in Hamel for 28 years.

On December 11, 1982, he was joined in marriage to Connie (Dove) Miller at Crown of Glory Church in Chaska, Minnesota. Their marriage was filled with traveling, laughter, and many adventures.

Al was an avid hunter and fisherman. He spent many years going to the family cabin up north with Connie in Glenwood, Minnesota; he loved to be outdoors on the lake catching walleyes and sunnies. He went on many trips to Canada and the Boundary Waters with his sons and many friends. In the winter months, they made their home in warm and sunny Texas.

Al was a proud member of A.A. and celebrated 40 years of sobriety. He was always an advocate for others who needed help, and never was shy to lend a helping hand. He was caring, kind, respectful, and gentle. His grandchildren were his pride and joy. Family meant everything to him, and he made sure to spend as much time with them as possible creating special memories.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Roger and Dorothy; many aunts and uncles.

Al is survived by his wife of nearly 40 years, Connie; sons, Jeremy Miller of Orr, MN, David Gess of Big Lake, MN; grandchildren, Lexis (Tyler) Harbaugh of St. Augusta, Connor (Lexi) Gess of Big Lake, MN, Anna Miller of Lake Crystal, MN and Jacob Miller of Lake Crystal, MN; brother, Jeff Miller of Mankato; sisters, Jean (Butch) Fuder of Foxhome, MN, and Connie (Tim) Ziegler of Mankato, MN; and nieces and nephews.

    I am so sorry for your loss of Al. He was a wonderful man. Take comfort that he is no longer in pain, and I bet he is in a boat fishing up in heaven. Sending you all hugs and love. ~Christy
