Daniel James Miller, 59, of Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Memorial Day, May 31, 2021, after a six-year battle with rare cancer. He was born in Long Beach, California, on August 09, 1961.
Daniel joined the Army and concurrently earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Longwood College. He ended his Military Career after 11 years flying helicopters as a Captain in the Army. After his time in the military, he was a loyal AT&T employee for 20 years. Daniel was happily married to Elizabeth Lesesne Miller for 36 years.
He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth Miller; and daughters, Jennifer, Lindsey & Taylor Miller; his parents; his two brothers, his sister, and their children; his wife's parents; her sisters, and their children.
Daniel was a loving husband, father, uncle, brother, godfather & son. He had a strong passion for flying helicopters. Daniel enjoyed tailgating and attending Jaguar games with his wife and all their friends. He was a MarioKart and Family Feud champion when playing with his girls. Daniel had an energy that truly lit up a room and brought joy and laughter to everyone around him. The most important thing in his life was his four girly girls and spending time with them. Daniel is loved by many and will be missed immensely. He had a subtle, sweet & funny way about him but somehow, still, would overwhelm a room with his gentle, witty presence.
