praising his long service as village clerk and his overall interest and
participation in village affairs. Village Views adds its own tribute.
Stan was one of the founders of the paper 18 years ago, and helped to keep
it going with contribution of "Stan's Memorabilia" and serving for years as
its circulation manager. It's people like Stan Miller who make things
like this possible. (Village Views 1986)
||Dale Lewis Miller of Milford, Ohio, was born in
Springfield, Ohio and died 18 March 2015, aged 86 years. He grew up in
Terrace Park and graduated from Terrace Park High School in 1947. His
obituary (at the Terrace Park Historical Society) states, "Dale was
fascinated with the Civil War and early American history, indulged his
curiosity about roadside historical markers, and was known to step into
museums of all sizes and kinds. He enjoyed gardening and nature,
nurturing orchids, and road trips including several cross-country in a
bright red van." Obviously he got his love of history from his father
and his love of gardening from his mother.
