Michael George Miller was born April 8, 1954, at St. Ans- gar's Hospital in Park River, ND, the son of Dean and Eleanor (Trzcinski) Miller of Fordville, ND. Mike's favorite place to be was the farm, espe- cially riding in the pickup truck or a combine with one of his nephews or brothers. To him the toot of the horn of the semi truck was a delight. He always wanted to be part of the action. He is survived by his brothers, Robert .(Rose Lynne) and birth date is a legal Jim (Joan) of statistic, but when asked how old he Fordville; sister, Linda Larson of was going to be he always grinned Park River, nieces, Roberta (Gene) and said, "Nineteen!" And, it was always to be on "Saturday." Michael resided at a Friend- ship, Inc. group home in Park Riv- er, for the past 28 years. He was an entrepreneur, vending a product called Static Stoppers in laundro- mats. For Mike, family and friends were everything. That,s all he had and all he wanted aside from an oc- casional horse to pet, a ride on a snowmobile or in a racecar and a turkey drumstick at Thanksgiv- ing. He liked to bowl, fish and camp especially at Park River Bible Camp. The fish he caught at Dev- ils Lake grew proportionally with the story. His sweet spirit was from the heart, his unconditional love was of- fered without reserve and his en- thusiastic smile was contagious.
