James E Miller

William James Everett Miller, 89, of Mountain View, Missouri, passed peacefully from this life surrounded by his family, into the arms of our Lord on September 26, 2020, just short of his 90th birthday. He was born on October 21, 1930, in Howell County, Missouri, the son of Fred Lonzo and Alta Evelyn (Bay) Miller.
He was united in marriage on February 17, 1948, to Mary Lucille Stutesman, who preceded him in death, and later was joined in marriage to Joyce Montrosse on January 18, 2014.
James attended The Shepherds Table Church in Mountain View, Missouri. He enjoyed farming and hunting, whether it was deer, turkey, coon, or an occasional trip out west for elk, but his love was drinking coffee while playing a good game of Pinochle.
 He is preceded in death by his first wife, Mary; parents, Fred and Alta Miller; daughter, Loretta Layman; grandson, Kyle Gilliam; three sisters, Virginia Montgomery, Ellen Ford, and Jerri Bay; three brothers, Harry Miller, Cecil Miller, and Freddy Miller.
He is survived by his wife, Joyce of the home; one son, Jim Miller of Van Buren, MO; five daughters, Wanda Grimm and husband, Jim of Belleville, IL, Carol Denning and husband, Doug of Winona, MO, Donna Gilliam and husband, Mick of Peace Valley, MO, Sheila Moore and husband, Bob of Lebanon, MO, and Tambra Honeycutt and husband, Steve of West Plains, MO; one son in law, Dee Layman of Mountain View, MO; three step-children, Toni Bretzinger and husband, Chris of IN, Ron Bohannon of the home, and Carla Robbins and husband, Steven of TN; fourteen grandchildren; twenty-nine great-grandchildren; three great-great-grandchildren; nine step-grand-children; fourteen step-great-grandchildren; twelve siblings; a host of nieces, nephews, friends, and special friends, Blaine and Judy Kenaga.
Although this is a sad time for all of us, we know Dad has gone home to be with the Lord and is at peace and no longer in pain. He will be dearly missed.
