Lieb Dee Miller, 81 passed away at his home in Pleasant Grove, Utah on May 23, 2016. His earthly angel and wife of 60 years, Sharon Verline Miller was at his side to comfort him through his final moments here on earth.\n\nLieb "Dee" was born on April 21, 1935 in Price, Utah to Gottlieb and Gretsel Miller. He went to school in Price and graduated in 1953 from Carbon High School. Thereafter, he joined the armed services and was stationed at Presido Army Base in San Francisco, Ca., where he met Sharon Fox, from Sacramento. After his Army service in Europe they married. He attended Carbon College (USU Eastern) in 1956. While there, he served on the Student Council and earned his associate degree. Dee was inducted onto their Wall of Fame (2015) for his vital role in getting a referendum on the ballot that kept all Jr. Colleges in Utah from being permanently closed. Dee then attended Sacramento State University. He earned his bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering with an emphasis in structures.\n\nWhile attending college Dee worked with Dr. R.B. Kershner and Admiral William Raborn at Aerojet General Corporation developing the first Polaris missile (still in use today). He was proud of the fact that he rode with the missile on a train to Cape Canaveral, Fl. for the first test firing.\n\nDee moved to Utah and worked as an engineer and manager for Chicago Bridge and Iron, the Forest Service, and Emery Mining Corporation. He retired to his basement office where he did structural engineering for clients throughout the state. He loved his daily interaction with customers until the day he died. The house was always filled with stories and laughter coming up from the basement as he entertained clients, treating each like family. He was stubborn about never sending out invoices because he felt like people would pay him if and when they could.\n\nDee and Sharon raised 6 children (3 boys and 3 girls), 23 grandchildren, and 32 great-grandchildren. He was always overly generous with his family. All of his kids and grandkids knew they could take anything he owned without a second glance. His personal interest in his grandchildren and constant teasing, made him a larger than life figure in each of their lives. He always stated that had he known grandchildren were so fun, he would have had them first.\n\nDee was a member of the LDS faith. He loved reading and studying about church history and he worked in the Mount Timpanogos Temple for 5 years. He was very adventurous and had numerous hobbies and interests that kept him active throughout his life. He passionately pursued each hobby until he mastered them and lost interest, golf being the exception. Aside from his grandchildren, golf was his primary interest. It captured his attention and kept him active more than his family can describe. Eight hole-in-ones says it all. No golf in heaven, no Dee.\n\nHe is survived by his wife Sharon, their children Kimberly Joyner (Mike), Scott Miller (Lesa), Mark Miller, Sheryl Kitchen (Todd), Jenny Miller (Flo), and Kurt Miller (Sheline), and his sister Connie Hansen (Jerry). He is proceeded in death by his father (Gottlieb), mother (Gretsel Guymon), and, brothers (Hans and Louis) Miller.\n\nFuneral services will be held Saturday, May 28, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. in the Northfield Third Ward Chapel, 2195 North 100 East, Pleasant Grove.
