Jimmy Jack Miller

d. July 5, 2023

Jimmy Jack Miller, 78, of Huntington, WV, formerly of Flatwoods, KY, passed away July 5, 2023, in the Cabell Huntington Hospital surrounded by his family. Mr. Miller was born in Lundale, WV on February 6, 1945, to the late Adam and Edith Johnson Miller. In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by one sister, Mary Jane Rowe, and two brother’s-in-law, Bobby Rowe and Tom Merritt. Jim was a remarkable individual who lived a life dedicated to faith and family. He was an active member of the Bridges Christian Church and when his health prevented him from attending regularly, he began using another of his passions, amateur radio, to participate in daily Bible Studies with other ham operators, who became dear friends in his last years. His professional life was dedicated to the education of others. He worked tirelessly alongside wonderful friends and colleagues in the University of Kentucky's Community College System at Ashland, as a professor of Speech and Communication. He served on the Board of Trustees for the University and retired as the interim President for Maysville Community College. In addition, some of Jim's greatest passions were his love for his family and his love for his Kentucky Wildcats. He truly had amazing friends—and was so thankful for his newest friends made at The Woodlands Retirement Community. He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Deborah Damron Miller; two daughters, Greta (Mark) Casto and Kelli (Chris) Kitchen; one son, Andy (Andi Webb) Miller; grandchildren, Morgan (Nick) Bauer, Will (Ashby-Lee) Casto, Adam Miller, Lindsay Kitchen, Aden Miller, Emily Kitchen and J.C. Kitchen; great-grandchildren, Adeline Bauer, Jack Bauer and one on the way; along with two sisters, Eva Merritt and Margaret Ann (Elmer) Mullins. In lieu of flowers, donations are suggested to The Woodlands Benevolent fund in honor of Jim at 1 Bradley Fosters Dr. Huntington, WV 25701 or Bridges Christian Church at www.bridgeschristianchurch.org. Graveside Service will be Saturday, July 8, 2023 at 3 P.M. at the Damron Cemetery at Shelby Valley. A celebration of life will be at 3:00 P.M., Sunday, July 9, 2023, at Bridges Christian Church in “The Warehouse” for family and friends.
