Battling a serious medical condition is a very frightening, unique and personal experience through tough times, and the hard fact that it takes up a lot of positivity and energy along is one of the reasons for many people to fear death and diseases. Throughout the life, many people fight for an actual cause and sometimes they succeed and sometimes they lose out on everything, leaving behind a lot of memorable memories. However, only few brave people really have that that stamina to hold on and guts and to fight and never give up the struggle till death is the only option left.
When it comes to fighting against death, no one has any say, even all the strategies and tactics of the humans would fail as is true in the case of Eric Miller. No matter how many achievements a person has made or how successful a person is, and no matter how much positive contributions he has made in the life of the people around him and has gathered goodwill, when the time is up, one has hardly any chance to survive on this earth.
On 14 August 2010, Eric Ulysses Miller passed away at John C. Lincoln North Mountain Hospital after struggling with serious medical condition for more than four years. He was 47 years old and was earlier from Flagstaff, and then had settled in Phoenix where he had expired. He was born on September 13th, 1962 at Corpus Christi in Texas. In 1970, he had moved to Flagstaff, AZ, and attended South Beaver Elementary East Flagstaff Jr. High. He successfully graduated from Coconino High School in 1981.
Eric Ulysses Milleris survived by his stepfather, Harold Lee Miller Sr. of Texas and mother Nolan Phyllis Lawson of Phoenix. His four brothers Carleton Dwight Miller of Phoenix, Philip Nolan Miller of Phoenix, Kevin Lewis Miller Sr. of Tucson and Harold Lee Miller Jr. of Phoenix, also mourn his loss. His four sisters Ina Cruchette’ Miller of Tucson, Iva Cruchette’ Miler of Tucson, Brenda Joyce Clay of Corpus Chirsti, Myrtle Beatrice McCalvin of Corpus Christi, Texas and along with six nieces and fourteen nephews. He was preceded in death by grandmothers Prim Rose Mitchell and Tansy Mae Bailey, grandfather, Nolan Philip Bailey, great aunt Ann Claudette Stewart and aunt, Mary Ellen Cuencas.
He has also left behind his other relatives and close friends. While a person would try to attain his personal ambitions in his life, not many would be successful to be generous and kind, and serve the society in any great way. Philanthropy was one of the things Eric Miller enjoyed doing and he had done plenty of services for the society, in his own way. This is one of the very reason for which his friends’ circle and entire neighborhood is deeply saddened by his untimely death.
A celebration of life service was held on 21st August, Saturday at 2pm at Best Funeral Services, in the memory of Eric Ulysses Miller. The address of the locale was 501 East Dunlap Avenue, Phoenix AZ-85020. His close friends and family had requested that all contributions be made to the National Pituitary Association by giving flowers or lighting a candle and help in praying for his immortal soul.
