Andrew J. Miller, age 54 of Clintonville, passed away on Saturday, February 12, 2022 at ThedaCare Regional Medical Center, Neenah.
Andrew James “A.J.” Miller was born June 27, 1967 to Rev. Donald & Marlene Miller in Belleville, IL. He was preceded in death by his father and is survived by his mother, Marlene. Andrew was the beloved “baby brother” of his five siblings: Beth (Mark) Kuehn, Sandy, UT; Dave Miller, Shawano; Hope (Terry) DiPiazza, Rolling Meadows, IL; Dean (Nancy) Miller, Darien, IL; Daniel (Judy) Miller, Clintonville. His nieces and nephews, Brant, Dillon, Natalie, Julia, Laura, Christine, Darren, Amy, Abby, Tommy, remember a sweet, fun uncle who shared his music, knowledge, and humor with them to make lasting memories. Andrew is also survived by three grandnieces and a grandnephew who would have loved sitting with him in nature and learning at his knee. Andrew is further survived by his dear Aunt Alda Gordon of Franksville, WI and cousins Susan, Steven, and Bill.
Andrew was baptized at Peace Lutheran Church in Belleville, IL. The family later moved to LaGrange, IL and Andrew attended St. John Lutheran School. The family settled in 1979 in Clintonville, WI and Andrew was confirmed at St. Martin Lutheran Church and attended school there and was a 1985 graduate of Clintonville HS. Andrew’s passion was music and he wrote a treasury of songs. He played guitar and drums and played local gigs with his band and also praise and worship music. He and his dad played parts in “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” and often spoke of that father/son experience. Other interests were astronomy, Biblical archeology, nature and camping, movie classics, and the music of Rush. He was a home Jeopardy phenom. He was an avid Packer fan and had a treasured vintage Packer knit cap that he wore his entire life. His pets were his joy – most recently his beloved beagle Susie and his Maltese Lily. Andrew appreciated God’s creation whether it was a summer night on the front porch listening to the song of crickets or viewing the awesome night sky in the UP at Teepee Lake or along the shores of Lake Superior.
Andrew was a sweet, gentle soul with a deep thoughtful intelligence, a child-like faith, and an amazingly quick wit and sense of humor. Andrew loved the Lord Jesus with all his heart, soul, and mind. In this we find our comfort. Together, in God’s presence, Christ will wipe away every tear.
Private services are planned. A family memorial service will be held at a later date.
Andrew appreciated the excellent foundation he received in his years at St. Martin Lutheran School and suggested any memorials go directly to the school so that others can have an excellent education experience as well.
The Eberhardt-Stevenson Funeral Home & Crematory, Clintonville is assisting the Miller family with the arrangements.
