Frederick R. Miller, 88, of Toledo, loving husband, father, and grandfather, went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, February 18, 2014, while in hospice care at home. He was born on March 28, 1925, in Toledo, Ohio to Mattie and Roy Miller. Fred graduated from DeVilbiss High School in 1943, and then served in the U.S. Army Air Corps in Germany and England from 1943 to 1946. He graduated from the University of Toledo with a degree in electrical engineering in June 1949, and married Dorothy Extine in September, 1949. Fred worked for the Toledo Edison Company for 38 years, retiring in 1987. Fred was an active member of Aldersgate United Methodist Church, serving on the finance committee for many years. He was an avid angler, fishing all over North America from Alaska to the Florida Keys, and, with Dorothy, an enthusiastic traveler in the U.S. and abroad. Boy Scout leader, photographer, and model airplane aficionado, Fred lived a full and active life of friendship and service to others.

He is survived by Dorothy, his wife of 64 years, and by three sons, Dean (Cathy), Dennis (Daina), and Gary (Tricia), and six grandchildren, Matthew, Joanna, Mara, Anna, Alana, and Jamie.
