L Donn Miller, 81, of Lovettsville, Virginia passed away peacefully during the night on March 20, 2017.
Donn was born in Arlington, VA and attended Washington & Lee High School. After getting married, he moved to Vienna to start his family. He was a self-employed carpet installer for 30 years, and was an avid reader, outdoorsman, gardener, cook, sailor, hunter and fisherman.
During the summer months, he enjoyed spending many weekends on the water with his family, sailing, exploring, fishing, crabbing and clamming on the lower Potomac, Chesapeake Bay and on Virginia’s Eastern Shore.
He “retired” at the age of 50 to a farm in Lovettsville, Va, where he continued with his love of the outdoors, and then watching his two grandchildren grow up. He was their biggest fan and went to every event he could from T-ball games to high-school swimming and lacrosse.
Donn was the son of William G Sr and Edna I Miller of Arlington Va. He was preceded in death by his sisters Mary Rodier and Ruth Stephenson, and brothers William G Jr and John Edward. He is survived by his wife Mary, of 57 years and daughter Laura of Lovettsville, and son Donn of Jefferson, Md. In addition, he has two grandchildren, Katy Miller and Matthew Miller of Jefferson, Md. He also has numerous nieces and nephews.
Interment will take place in Lovettsville Union Cemetery.
