Many people fight for a cause all their life and they may succeed and sometimes lose out everything, leaving behind a lot of memories. Battling a medical condition is a personal journey through difficult times, and the fact that it takes up a lot of energy, and positivity along is one of the reasons for many people to fear diseases. However, only few people really have that courage and that stamina to hold on, fight and never give up the fighting till death is the only way out.
The fact that no one has any say when it comes to fighting against death, even all the tactics of the humans would fail is true in the case of Eric Miller. No matter how successful a person is, and no matter how much he has gathered goodwill, and made a positive contribution in the life of the people around him, when the time is up on this earth, one has hardly any chance to survive.
Eric Ulysses Miller passed away on 14 August 2010 at John C. Lincoln North Mountain Hospital after battling away the medical condition for over four years. He was 47. He was formerly from Flagstaff, and then had settled in Phoenix where he passed away. He was born on 13 September 1962 at Corpus Christi in Texas.
In 1970, he had moved to Flagstaff, AZ, and attended South Beaver Elementary East Flagstaff Jr. High. He graduated successfully in 1981 from Coconino High School.
He was preceded in death by grandfather, Nolan Philip Bailey, grandmothers Tansy Mae Bailey and Prim Rose Mitchell, aunt Mary Ellen Cuencas and great aunt Ann Claudette Stewart.
Eric Ulysses Miller is survived by his mother, Nolan Phyllis Lawson of Phoenix, and stepfather Harold Lee Miller Sr. of Texas. His brothers Philip Nolan Miller of Phoenix, Harold Lee Miller Jr. of Phoenix, Kevin Lewis Miller Sr. of Tucson, and Carleton Dwight Miller of Phoenix also mourn his loss. His four sisters Iva Cruchette’ Miler of Tucson, Ina Cruchette’ Miller of Tucson, Myrtle Beatrice McCalvin of Corpus Christi, Texas, and Brenda Joyce Clay of Corpus Chirsti along with fourteen nephews and six nieces.
He has also left behind his friends and other relatives. While a person would try to achieve his personal goals in his life, not many would be successful to be kind, and serve the society in any big way. In his own way, Eric Miller had done plenty of services for the society and philanthropy was one of the things he enjoyed doing. For this very reason, his entire neighborhood and friends’ circle is deeply saddened by his untimely demise.
In the memory of Eric Ulysses Miller, a celebration of life service was held on Saturday 21 August at 2pm at Best Funeral Services. The address of the venue was 501 East Dunlap Avenue, Phoenix AZ-85020. The family had requested that all contributions be made to the National Pituitary Assoc. by visiting the website of pituitary.org by lighting a candle or by giving flowers and help in praying for his soul.
