Michael Edward MillerMarch 12, 1969 ~ November 14, 2017 (age 48)
Michael Edward Miller, 48, of Penrose, NC went home to be with the Lord Tuesday, November 14, 2017. Mike was the embodiment of Philippians 1:21, “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain,”
Mike is survived by his loving parents, Jerry and JoAnn Westall Miller, of Penrose; two sisters, Kim Owen and her husband Shannon and Leigh Ann Allen and her husband Todd all of Hendersonville; and, the true lights of his life, his nieces and nephews, Lauren Owen Ashe and her husband Jalen of Etowah, Seth Owen, Emma Elms, and Colton Allen all of Hendersonville; and his great-niece Gracie Lynn Ashe. Also surviving are a multitude of aunts, uncles and cousins who brought Mike much joy.
The family will receive friends from 6 until 8 pm Friday, November 17 at Anchor Baptist Church, located at 3232 Hendersonville Highway, Pisgah Forest. We will glorify the Lord with a Celebration of Life service at 11 am on Saturday, November 18 at Anchor Baptist Church, of which he was a member, with Dr. Randy Barton and Rev. Allen Martin officiating. Private family burial to follow in Burnsville.
In lieu of flowers, Mike’s special request was that donations be made to Pastor Joel Jurado in the Philippines. Mike and Joel became the best of friends while Joel was here attending Bible college. They formed a friendship that has stood the test of time and distance, and Mike’s final desire was to make an impact on Joel’s ministry in the Philippines. Checks may be made payable to ABMI with a notation of Pastor Joel Jurado in the memo line and mailed to Anchor Baptist Missions International, 3232 Hendersonville Highway, Pisgah Forest, NC 28768.
The family would like to extend special thanks to Mark and Renee Jones, Little River Fire Department, Anchor Baptist Missions International and Four Seasons Compassion for Life. You all touched Mike and our family in ways words simply cannot express.
