Eddie Joe Miller, resident of Kenwood in Russell, went to be with the Lord, Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018.
He was born May 25, 1951, in Worthington, a son of Joe Miller and Wilma Stickler Miller.
He was preceded in death by his mother; his father; two sisters, Darcus McWhorter and Carol Skaggs; and a niece, Crystal Cook.
He is survived by his loving wife, Carla Mourer Miller of 42 years; and a loving sister, Rita Miller Cook of Worthington.
Eddie worked as an ambulance driver at Evans Funeral Home during high school. After graduating from Raceland High School he moved to Detroit and spent four years working for General Motors.
Eddie returned to Greenup County, where he worked construction while attending Ashland Vocational School, where he received his welding certificate. He worked at National Mines Services Company welding mining machinery until their closure and he then went back into the construction field.
The building of an in ground pool in his yard led him to developing his own business, Paradise Pools and Spas in Raceland in 1987. He and Carla owned the business for 25 years.
His talent and love for building cars and motorcycles proved to be a life's passion for Eddie. Over the years, he collected many trophies but none thrilled him more than winning Best of Show at the World of Wheels in Huntington, W.Va., with his red 1955 Chevy.
Of all of his accomplishments, Eddie was most proud of his decision to follow Christ in later life. He was an elder in Greenup Presbyterian Church. His testimony was an inspiration that led others to the Lord.

A visitation for family and friends will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the funeral home.
