May 17, 1944 - February 7, 2022
Ronald “Ron” Lee Miller, son of Merl and Wilma Lucille (Sayles) Miller was born on March 17, 1944 in Perry, Iowa, and departed this life on February 7, 2022 at his home in Buffalo, Missouri. At the time of his passing he was 77 years, 10 months, and 19 days of age. Ron held many titles throughout his lifetime. He was a farmer, a business owner, a husband, but his favorite was “Papa”. Born in 1944, Ron was raised on a farm in Woodward, IA. In 1974, he and his wife, Diana, moved to Buffalo, Mo. He continued his family legacy of farming and livestock throughout his lifetime. In addition to being a farmer, he enjoyed starting many ventures which allowed him to travel the country, earning numerous awards and accolades along the way. Ron’s many businesses included: Millers’ Go-Kart Racing, Miller Implement, Buffalo True Value, Ozark’s Floor Care, Ozarks Store Fixtures, and farming corn, soybeans, hogs, cattle, and raising and showing draft horses. However, his true love and passion was his family. He proposed to his bride, Diana Farley, after just six months of dating, and over the last 53 years of marriage they have built a wonderful family together. They were blessed with five children, 13 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. During their frequent and loud family gatherings Ron would remark, “How blessed am I to have so many and not a dud in the group!” Ron is survived by his wife, Diana Miller of Buffalo; two sisters, Loretta Miller of Oklahoma City, OK and Donna Wilson of Buffalo, MO; children, Susan (Drew) Keith of Buffalo, MO, Debbie (Scott) Daniels of Nampa, ID, Julie (Mitch) Brockman of Buffalo, MO, Scott (Kami) Miller of Buffalo, MO, and Christy (David) Dickson of Grain Valley, MO; 13 grandchildren, Landon (Lea) Keith Buffalo, MO, Gracie (Stiel) Carter Urbana, MO, Caleb (Melanie) Daniels, Noah (Kerri) Daniels, Jonah Daniels, Sophie Daniels all of Nampa, ID, Megan (Alex) Valencia-Darnell of Kansas City, MO, Wyatt Darnell of Columbia, MO, step-grandson Keegan Brockman of Buffalo, MO, Shaylie (Jarrett) Rogers of Republic, MO, Hayden Miller of Buffalo, MO, Delaney Miller of Buffalo, MO, and Olivia Dickson and Carter Dickson both of Grain Valley, MO; and four great-grandchildren, Layne, Barrett and Colter Carter and Lincoln Keith.
