Thomas Irvin Miller

SOUTWEST HARBOR, Maine – Thomas Irvin Miller, 73, died Feb. 17, 2014, at his home in Southwest Harbor, Maine.

He was born Dec. 15, 1941, in Lewistown, the son of the late Richard and Claudine (Goss) Miller.

Tom graduated from Lewistown High School in 1959. He received his Associates degree from Reading Business School. Tom was a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, having served in the Korean conflict.

Prior to his recent move to Maine to be near his daughter Abigail and her family, Tom’s home was in central Pennsylvania. He grew up on Green Avenue in Lewistown and ran Miller’s Greenhouse after the passing of his father, Richard. He owned and operated Amity Hall Antiques and New England Brass Company. A master carpenter and clocksmith, he spent his life indulging his love of history through collecting, refurnishing and occasionally parting with antiques. Tom is remembered by all who knew him for his unreserved wit, charm and larger-than-life personality.

Thomas is survived by: his wife, Roberta (Rehm) Miller; four daughters, Abigail Ames and husband, Geoffrey, of Southwest Harbor, Rachel McGill and husband, Keith, of Austin, Texas, Kristina Machusick and husband, Tom Eberlein, of Camp Hill, and Nicole Machusick, of York; six grandchildren, Garrett and Grady Ames, Arlo and Everett McGill, Cara Meglio and Seth Kodner; two brothers, James Miller and Richard Miller; and one sister, Jayne (Miller) Priar.
