Robert Eugene "Bob/Butch" MILLER (1931 - 2018)

Robert Eugene "Bob/Butch" Passed away December 5, 2018, in Spokane, Washington. Born in Herman, Nebraska on December 23, 1931, to Eve Gilbert and Everett Miller, the family moved to Spokane, Washington in 1935 where they spent the rest of their lives. Bob attended Rogers High School and served as a seaman in the Navy at Geiger Field with hisMILLER older brother Bill from 1949 to 1951. Bob grew up hunting and fishing with his parents and friends in and around the Inland Northwest. He was passionate about many things, especially cars, and was one of the six founding members of The Dukes Auto Club in 1946. He raced stock cars, motorcycles, and dragsters for many years, winning several competitions but most notably in October 2018 was inducted into the Washington State Hot Rod Hall of Fame, and The Dukes were awarded the 2018 Club of the Year. In 1953 he married Jan Hartmann, and after having three children, he hung up his racing career to become a Spokane Firefighter at stations #3 and #15 from 1962 - 1977. After he retired from the Fire Department, he owned several businesses including Midas Muffler and The Fenceman. Bob met Marilyn Smith in Orange County, California where they married in 1992 and in 1993, they moved to Trout Creek, Montana. In Montana, Bob and Marilyn were able to live their dream in a log cabin home where they spent time huckleberry picking, hunting, riding horses and mules, and hosting several family holidays. He is survived by his wife, Marilyn; three children Jerry Miller, Diane Sharrock, and Randy Miller; three stepchildren Shelly Smith Stevens, Cheryl Smith, and Charlene Smith; 10 grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.
