May 1, 1928 – Feb. 25, 2011

Harry Cornelius Miller of Davis passed peacefully on Friday, Feb. 25, 2011, after bravely battling health issues the last year. He was 82. Harry enjoyed a long and productive life as a husband, father, businessman, golfer and loyal friend to many in communities in both New York and California. He will be fondly and forever remembered and profoundly missed.

Harry was born on May 1, 1928, in Hudson, N.Y., the only child of Harry Parker Miller, known as “Pie,” and Marion Rowe Miller. He attended Hudson High School, where is he was a three-season athlete in football, basketball and track. In 1946, Harry enlisted in the U.S. Navy, where he served his country honorably for two years. Harry enrolled at Union College in Schenectady, N.Y., where he was president of Kappa Alpha fraternity, and lettered in football and basketball. Harry earned his bachelor of arts degree in 1952. While at New York Tel, he met and courted Nancy DeRonde, of Delmar, N.Y. Married in 1953, Nancy and Harry spent the next 57 years together. Settling in Delmar, N.Y., Harry worked in real estate, in residential and commercial sales, marketing, management and relocation. Nancy and Harry raised two boys, Scott, 55, and Randy, 52.

Tired of ice storms, shoveling snow and six-month winters, Harry and Nancy moved the family west in 1978, settling in Davis, where they resided since. Harry started and successfully ran Harry Miller and Associates for nearly 30 years, seamlessly passing the reins to son Scott over the last decade. Harry was an avid golfer, and he and Nancy were members of El Macero Country Club for the past 30 years, where they lived their lifelong dream of playing golf year-round, and making great friends along the way. Over the past six years, you could find Harry every day walking his dog, Cosmo, a Shetland sheepdog, whom he adored.

To all us whom Harry loved, befriended and mentored over the past 80 years, we consider ourselves blessed to have been guided by his warm touch, tickled by his humor, influenced by his sound advice and transformed by his unfailing love for his family. He is survived by Nancy, sons Scott and Randy, grandchildren Kyle (21), Katie (19), and Tara (21). Courtney, his first grandchild, predeceased Harry in 2006.

There will be a memorial service on Friday, March 4, 2011, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the El Macero Country Club in Davis. In lieu of flowers, the Miller family requests that donations be made to the American Diabetes Association, http://www.diabetes.org.
