Obituary for Paul Miller

Paul Miller, a resident of New Hudson and former resident of Highland, died at his home on October 2, 2011. He was 98 years old. Born on December 2, 1912 in Hancock, MI Paul was the son of Tony and Josephine (Bartkowiak) Miller. Paul attended Bradley University and studied Horology, the art or science of measuring time, with the intent to help his dad at the family's jewelry shop. He joined the Army Air Corps and was proud to serve his country. In 1941, on the Boblo Boat, he met Norma, the love of his life. She wrote to him throughout World War II and they were married upon his return. The couple lived in the Upper Peninsula for four years, before settling in Redford Township where they raised their two daughters. Paul worked for many years at the GM Fisher body plant as a lab technician in Livonia and continued his passion of watch making at night. He was known for his prankster personality and compassion for his family. In retirement, he was a doting grandfather and great grandfather who spent many years taking care of the kids; whether it was playing games, conning Mike into eating worms, or allowing Brooke to style his hair. He savored every minute. Paul also enjoyed sports, especially hockey, college football and playing golf. His fun loving spirit and quick wit will be missed by many, but never forgotten.
He was preceded in death by his wife of nearly 60 years, Norma, in 2004, and great granddaughter Alexandra Beale. He is survived by his daughters, Kathie (Frank) Beale and Paula (Louis) Zasuwa; grandchildren Jeff (Elke) Beale, Mike (Christie) Beale, Katie (Joe) Zasuwa-Seto and Gregg Zasuwa; great grandchildren, Brooke, Sydney, Bret, Devon, Nicole and Tyler.
A Funeral Liturgy will be held at Church of the Holy Spirit, 3700 N. Harvey Lake Road, Highland, on Friday, October 7, at 10AM with the Rev. Fr. Leo Lulko officiating. Burial and Full Military Honors will be held at Oakland Hills Cemetery in Novi. Friends may visit at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 404 E. Liberty, Milford, on Thursday 4-9PM, with a Rosary at 7PM. Memorials may be made in his name to Disabled American Veterans. For further information please phone 248-684-6645.
