Died September 22, 2005
AURORA, Wis. - A.L. Miller, 87, of Aurora, Wis., went to be with his Lord on Thursday, Sept. 22, 2005. Born in Oak Forest, Ark., on Oct. 11, 1917, A.L. was the youngest of four children. He was born to William and Elizabeth Miller.

Mr. Miller grew up in Oklahoma, but because of his Army career, was able to live in several places during his adult life, including the Philippines, Texas, Michigan and Arizona. He visited several other places, including Australia, Korea, Japan and Vietnam. He moved to Aurora, Wis., in 1997, and resided with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Mr. Miller was a lover of life. He was a loving and caring individual who easily made friends. He always had a story to tell. Once you heard one of his stories, you were hooked, and couldn't wait for the next one. Football season was always exciting at the house in Aurora, Wis. Al was rooting for the Dallas Cowboys, while the rest of the house was pulling for the Packers! He watched his Cowboys often and was an avid fan, no matter how they were doing for the season. He will be missed this next season.

Al had two children, stepson, Orville Tuck Sr., who preceded him in death in 1986; and daughter, Delores (Dennis) Coddington of Frankfort, Ind. Besides his son, he was preceded in death by his parents, wife, Janie; sisters, Mae and Jewel; and one brother, A.C.

He is survived by grandson, David Tuck Sr. and his wife, Julie of Aurora, Wis., their children, David Jr., William and Ashley; daughter, Delores (Dennis) Coddington of Frankfort, Ind.; stepdaughter-in-law, Linda (Dennis) Conway; grandchildren, Danial (Lois) Tuck, Cindy (Tim Laukhart) Tuck, Orville (Kay) Tuck, Belinda (Ron) Way, Mary (Smoke) Skillern, Delores Marie (Travis) Strain, Danny (Lisa) Arnold; many nieces, nephews, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren; plus many other friends and extended family. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
