JOHN ROBERT "BOB" MILLER John Robert (Bob) Miller, 85, from Boulder City, NV was born 1/07/1935 in NM and passed away 8/9/2020. He is survived by his wife, Verna Mae Conde; brother, Johnny Miller, NM; son, Robert Neil Miller, 2 adopted grandchildren, CA; daughter, Robbin Jo Sawyer; 3 grandchildren, CA. Bob was a superb CPA, and owned his own accounting firm in CA. His passions were flying his own plane, riding his motorcycle (in the earlier years), trophy hunting & fishing, especially in Alaska, as well as all over the world, & socializing with a world of friends. Bob proudly served in the US Navy from 1953-1957. He was first on the USS Skagit & was especially proud of his service on the USS catamount ship in the Marshal Islands during the atomic bomb tests in 1955/56. His hats with Skagit and Catamount embroidered on them initiated many conversations with other Veterans wherever he went. He loved going to Branson, MO each year during the Veteran's week in November Bob always had a positive, gentle demeanor, was kind, generous, considerate; an amazing man & had a lot of love for his world of friends & family. Almost every morning, once he was up, began singing hymnal songs, as well as other times during the day. Bob's reply to anyone's greeting of "how are you?," was: "Life is Good!" In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Bob's favorite charity: The Special Olympics, in honor of his special love for his handicapped granddaughter, 1133 19th St NW, Washington DC 20036. The family would enjoy having you join us in celebrating Bob's life, with the military honor guard & bag pipe performance at Bethany Baptist Church, 210 Wyoming St., Boulder City, NV 89005 10/12/2020 at 1:00 pm, or join us live stream on line at Bethany Baptist; click on Bethany Facebook button; scroll down to live video starting @ 1:00 pm.

Bob was a good mentor, wise counselor and good Christian friend. I learned a lot from Bob during our short business partnership and years of association. The world lost a bright light with Bob's passing, but God welcomed home his 'Good and Faithful Servant'.
