WEST NEWBURY, MA: Grant Miller died peacefully on October 21, 2017 at High Pointe Hospice in Haverhill after being diagnosed with metastatic colon cancer in October of 2014.
Born on January 20, 1944 at Mitchell Field in Hempstead, NY, he was the son of the late Ted and Betty Miller of West Newbury.
Grant graduated from “the new” Pentucket Regional School and UNH where he achieved a Master’s Degree in History.
Over the years he worked in several different fields including the leather cutting industry, and most recently, shipping and receiving. In his younger days he travelled to Europe and across this country to Montana and California and our great National Parks. He enjoyed many sports and played in a golf league at Far Corners for many years. Grant was a fan of the Pats, Bruins, Sox, Celtics and English soccer. An avid reader, Grant was a great source of information on many subjects; especially sports, history and astronomy. He could explain things in such a way, even his sisters could understand. He was a kind soul and good son and brother who was once seen literally giving a stranger the shirt off his back.
He leaves his sister, Marilyn Miller of Bradford, his sister Susan Miller and her husband Joe Edwards of Leroy, MI, his niece, Megan Wierenga and her husband Keith and their two children, Miller and Amelia, and several cousins.
The family would like to thank Dr. Iasiello, Dr. Ingram and all the doctors, nurses, aides, ambulance workers and volunteers at Holy Family Hospital at Merrimack Valley, St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, Brighton, Dana Farber Cancer Care, Methuen and High Pointe Hospice House, Haverhill, and Merrimack Valley VNA and Hospice for their care and kindness.
Arrangements by Dole, Childs & Shaw Funeral Home, 148 Main Street, Haverhill will be private and at the convenience of the family. An act of kindness in Grant’s memory would be appreciated.
