Miller, David R. (6 FEB 1948 - 15 APR 2016)

David R. Miller, 68, Wausau, died unexpectedly on Friday, April 15, 2016, with his family by his side.

He was born Feb. 6, 1948, in Wausau, the son of the late John T. and Marie M. (Weigand) Miller. On Feb. 15, 1969, he married Beverly Schultz at St. John Lutheran Church on Highway N, in the town of Wien. She survives. David graduated from Northcentral Technical College where he earned a degree in agricultural mechanics.

For most of his life, he was an over-the-road truck driver, most recently for County Materials, where he retired from in 2014. David was very proud to have received recognition for driving truck over 2 million miles without having an accident. Among his favorite pastimes, he enjoyed fishing, hunting, Sudoku puzzles, playing cards, especially sheepshead, and was an avid Green Bay Packers fan. He loved his cottage on Soo Lake, where he worked on many projects and spent many good times with family and friends.

Survivors include his loving wife of 47 years, Beverly Miller, Wausau; three children, Angela (Jim) Lenselink, Wausau, Bradley (Peggy) Miller, Mosinee and Amanda (William) Sonnentag, Marathon; seven grandchildren, Allison and Caleb Lenselink, Spencer and Merideth Miller and Chloe, Tate and Natalie Sonnentag; one brother-in-law, Lloyd (Mary) Schultz, Edgar; one sister-in-law, Patsy (John) Fischer, Fenwood; special nephew, Gregory Fischer, Madison; his very special furry pal “Destiny”; and many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his parents-in-law, Lawrence and Ruth Schultz.
The funeral service was held at 3 p.m. on Friday, April 22, at Saint Andrew Lutheran Church, Rib Mountain. Rev. Craig Swenson presided. Burial was in the Edgar Cemetery.

Friends called on Thursday from 4-8 p.m. at Peterson/Kraemer Funeral Home, 3400 Stewart Avenue, Wausau, and again on Friday from 1 p.m. until time of the service at the church. Online condolences may be expressed at
