Robert Michael Miller was born on May 18, 1964 to James & Mary Ann (Grunst) Miller New Ulm. Bob attended New Ulm High School. He worked as shipping and receiving coordinator at Windings, Inc. for 29 years, and enjoyed early retirement for the past 7 years. Bob was a proud father, Opa and a part of the Flying Dutchmen Motorcycle Club for 10 years. He would spend his free time visiting with close friends and family reminiscing about the “good ol days”. Bob loved hanging out in his garage, drinking a “Brandy 7” while listening to classic rock. Bob’s presence was always known in a room with his loud “Miller voice” and booming laugh. Nothing would make Bob smile more than seeing his grandkids. Our hearts will ache but his memory will forever live on through our ongoing love and adoration for him.
