Condolences to David’s family. He was a great guy and we enjoyed visiting with him at various farming functions. I also enjoyed him as a customer at Arrowwood Prairie very easy to work with always very curtious when asking questions.
Our sincerest condolences to the Miller family on the loss of David. As a kid growing up with so many of the Miller family and especially with David, the memories are beyond words. Deer hunting with David and my sons were memorable and the stories endless! They will never be forgotten! Truly a moment of reflection for anyone that knew David. We all mourn his loss.

My condolences to the Miller family. It was always a pleasure visiting with him.
Our deepest sympathies go out to the Miller family. Dave and I were neighbors, classmates and friends. We rode the school bus together for years. He was a man of few words but always had a smile and kind word when I saw him. He will be missed.
My heart goes out to the Miller family at the loss of David. Your family has suffered so much loss. I remember fondly all the Miller family from church. You could certainly fill a pew! A beautiful family. Joanie was my age. Melanie let me stay with her at Union College for senior days. She gave me my first taste of KFC. I thought she was so pretty & so grown up at college. Campmeeting also has special memories of Debbie & Joan – I even have some old pictures. We had our first hayride at your farm. Very fun! Vicky was still with you then. Enough reminiscing. Bless you all during these tough days.
I’m sorry to see him pass.He was a good neighbor and a good guy.
Sorry for the Miller family loss. We rode in the back of the school bus for many miles. Such a great guy.
Really enjoyed talking with him at last class reunion. Prayers for all his family.
I was so sorry to learn of David’s passing. My condolences to the entire family. I used to run into David when we were both in Grand Forks. It was always a pleasure to connect and to visit, and he was always working hard. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Lots of good memories of your whole family. Take good care.
