Jerry T. Miller, 73

Jerry T. Miller, 73, of Lewes, Del., passed away on Saturday, Dec. 31, 2016, at Beebe Healthcare in Lewes. He was born on Sunday, Oct. 31, 1943, in Frederick, Md., son of the late John Miller and Hattie (Zimmerman) Miller.

Miller was a 1961 graduate of Frederick (Md.) High School and went on to a lifelong career as an accountant for Bechtel Engineering in Maryland. He spent many years working for the firm, both in Gaithersburg, Md., and in Saudi Arabia, retiring after more than 25 years.

In 1999, Miller relocated to the Delaware Seashore area, where he became a member of the Rehoboth Black Tie Group. He could be seen around town cruising in his ‘57 Thunderbird convertible, and he enjoyed time spent with his many dear friends over a cocktail and good conversation. His love of travel took him all over the world. Egypt, Turkey and Iraq were among his favorite places to visit.

In addition to his parents, Miller was preceded in death by his beloved partner of 18 years, Steve Davis, in 1993; his brother, Charles Miller; and his sister, Elaine Miller. He is survived by his twin brother, Terry Miller, and his wife, Virginia, of Frederick, Md.; his niece, Cindy Sabato; his nephews, Darren Bryant and Scott Allen Miller; and many wonderful friends.

All services were to be private. Arrangements were being handled by Parsell Funeral Homes & Crematorium, Atkins-Lodge Chapel, Lewes, Del. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Delaware Hospice; 100 Patriots Way; Milford, DE 19963, or to Cadia Renaissance Rehabilitation Center; 26002 John J. Williams Hwy.; Millsboro, DE 19966. Condolences may be sent online at
