Rob was born March 6th, 1965 to Mary Lou and James Paul Miller. He was the youngest son of 5 children.
Rob graduated from Ankeny High School in 1983. He then attended DMACC and decided to pursue flight school in Oklahoma. He moved back home and shortly thereafter married Tracy Liblin-Miller of Fairfield, IA. Together they raised three children, two girls and one boy.
Rob enjoyed his years of working in the business of mechanics. He loved going on car rides, and teaching his kids how to work on them. Rob always put family first. He was the man you could count on to always be there. He enjoyed time with his children, and absolutely adored his grandchildren. Rob always had a smile on his face. He had a goofy sense of humor, and loved to make you laugh. Rob was a member of Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart Church and a member of Knights of Columbus. He will be greatly missed by many.
Rob is survived by his children, Ashley Miller, Mackenzie Miller, and Steven Miller; grandchildren, Bentlee, Bryer, and Tinsley; and siblings Paula (Johnny) Stinson, Raymond (Peg) Miller, and Greg (Deb) Miller.
Rob is preceded in death by his parents Mary Lou and James Paul Miller, and brother Steven Miller.
