EVERETT MILLER 1988-1956
(Usher at the Opera House for 30 years)
Morgan County Herald 1956
The late Everett Miller was born and spent his lifetime in this village. For 88 years his life was daily an open book to his small town neighbors. We believe they will join us in saying that he conformed to the picture of what a citizen should be. He was industrious, he was moral and he lead a useful life. He was a consistent christian. Older residents who recall his youth, will identify him with activity and enthusiasm in sports. He loved the great American game of baseball and was himself a most excellent player. As a bowler in the old days when the game was popular in McConnelsville, he was among the best. The life of Everett Miller was not spectacular. He never aquired fame or great wealth, but everyday found him in his niche, doing his duty, supporting his family and worthwhile things of the community where he lived. Most everyone here liked and respected Everett Miller as a good man and a good citizen and they will all miss his cheery greeting, especially about the courthouse. Everett Miller was an Usher at the Twin City Opera House for 30 years and is believed to still walks the aisles performing his duties. For those willing to pay their respects, one can simply place a floral arrangement of Avas Flowers at Everett Miller's grave. Of course for those who didn't know him personally, perhaps placing some flowers or a bouquet at the Opera House might suit you better. For a man who respected everyone he encountered and brought cheer into the lives of others, paying tribute to Everett Miller in this fashion seems befitting of a man of his nature.
