Steven E. Miller

Steve Miller, 77, of Des Moines passed away Friday evening, October 6, 2017, at his home. Steven Edward Miller was born on June 19, 1940 in Cresco, Iowa. He was the son of Claud and Stella Miller.

Steve graduated from Cresco Notre Dame High School in 1958. He enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corp, serving from 1958 to 1961.

After his military service, Steve returned to Cresco and worked for several years as a butter maker at the Cresco Creamery. He then moved to Des Moines to work for Diamond Laboratories, eventually rising to the rank of supervisor.

Steve was an avid outdoorsman, beginning with his Boy Scout years as a youth and continuing throughout his life as a hunter and fisherman. He was also well known as a skillful gardener, who shared the fruits of his labor with his many friends and neighbors. His good natured teasing will be remembered by all, including the children of several of his high school classmates who knew him as "Uncle" Steve.

Steve's wit, wisdom, and sense of humor endeared him to everyone. He was generous and helpful. You liked him immediately the first time you met him, and once he became your friend he remained your friend for life.

Mr. Miller was preceded in death by his parents, Claud and Stella; his brother, Jim Miller; his sister, Claudelle Tiedemann; and niece Laura Tiedemann.

Steve is survived by special lady friend Marilyn Stein; sister-in-law Joyce Miller; nephews Chet and Andy; nieces Sandy, Lisa, Jennifer, and Kristin; and many lifelong friends and extended family.

A memorial service for Mr. Miller will be held at the Hamilton Funeral Home at 605 Lyon St., Des Moines, on Saturday, October 28. Visitation from 1:00 until 2:00 p.m. Services at 2:00 p.m. followed by a reception at the funeral home.
