John Peter Miller, 73, of Clifton Park, NY was called home by the Lord on Saturday, October 3, 2020, following a long and courageous battle with Parkinson’s Disease. A loving and compassionate husband, father, grandfather, son, brother and friend, he will be missed tremendously by all who knew him. John was born on November 13, 1946 in Poughkeepsie, NY to Carl Peter Miller and Joanna Barron Miller, both predeceased him. He was a graduate of Holy Trinity Catholic School and Poughkeepsie High School and later earned his degrees from the College of the Holy Cross and Boston College Law School. John served his country honorably with the United States Army 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment during the Vietnam War. A member of the NYS Bar Association and NYS Public Defenders Association, he practiced law in many areas during his long career including working for the Dutchess County District Attorney’s Office, the United States Attorney’s Office in New York and Philadelphia and later the NYS Attorney General’s Office in Albany. He also loved to share his knowledge with others by teaching law at Russell Sage College for a time. John was a communicant of St. Edward’s Church in Clifton Park as well as a long-time, active member of the Knights of Columbus. He loved spending time with his family and friends, exercising, playing golf, fishing, boating, coaching baseball for his sons, watching the Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots, and celebrating his Irish heritage. John truly enjoyed spending summers at Lake Champlain with family, a tradition he had done since his childhood and passed on to his own family over the years. In his later years he went to great effort to attend any of his grandchildren’s activities he could, rain or shine. Grandpa truly enjoyed attending many swimming meets, baseball games, gymnastics classes, soccer games and karate classes and his grandchildren loved having him there.
John is survived by his loving wife of 48 years, Linda (Maneri) Miller whom he married on August 26, 1972 at Mount Carmel Church in Poughkeepsie. He is survived by his children, Brendan J. Miller (Carla) of Halfmoon, NY, Karen M. Miller of Clifton Park, NY, Colin M. Miller (Nicolle) of Cary, NC, and Alicia B. Miller of Albany, NY; his beloved grandchildren, Brian and Isabella Miller of Halfmoon, NY and Rose and Zoe Miller of Cary, NC. Also survived by his siblings, William Miller (Lois) of Southport, NC, Mary Ann (Michael) Donahoe of Southport, NC, Michael Miller of Springfield, VA, his Brother-in-law and Sister-in-law, Samuel and Monica Maneri of Manchester, CT, as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
Relatives and friends may visit on Monday, October 12th from 2:00-5:00 PM at the William G. Miller & Son Funeral Home, 371 Hooker Avenue, Poughkeepsie, NY 12603. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at the Church of the Holy Trinity, 775 Main Street, Poughkeepsie on Tuesday, October 13th at 10:00 AM.

Very sorry to hear about John. I met John as a fellow youth baseball dad. I also knew him when we both worked for New York State in Albany. I always enjoyed my contacts with John and thought he epitomized the term "a really nice guy".

My heart and prayers go out to all the Miller family for the loss of John.
I was John's next door neighbor boyhood friend and playmate. After high school, our lives took different paths, but I see now that John led an amazing life, accomplishing many great things and being helpful to many. Blessings and much love to all the family. Dave Barbeau. Troutman NC

Dear Linda and "kids", Bruce and I were very sorry to hear of John's passing. He was so proud of all of you and kept up with all your activities. For years we enjoyed having the two of you "behind us" at 9:00 am Mass and sharing coffee afterward. I am so glad that we got to see John in February at the swim meet. Call me Linda. Chris Sutphin
