Archie L. Miller remembrance

Archie L. Miller departed this life on Tuesday, September 26, 2023, at his residence. 

Archie believed in God.  He never hesitated to tell anyone about the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

He was kindhearted and always willing to give what he had to those in need.  He was never lost for words and could genuinely make anyone laugh.  He had a good heart.  He loved people. 

He was preceded in death by his parents, James and Ruth Miller;  brothers, Bobby Miller, William "Tito" Miller, and James "Junior" Miller;  sisters, Lenda Miller, Letha Miller, Cora Roderick, Margaret Anderson, and Sherley A. Gudger.

To cherish his memory, he leaves his daughters of Knoxville, TN, Ashley Brown and Anita Harris;  grandson, Quintin Brown;  granddaughters, Alanna and Qiara Brown, Terryonna Grove, and Raquel Harris; sisters, Bessie Miles (Dickie) of Yonkers, NY and Nancy R. Jones of Gastonia, NC;  brothers, David Miller (Joanne) of New York, NY and Grover Miller (Janet) of Kingsport, TN;  and longtime companion Barbara Coclough and a wonderful host of nieces and nephews, cousins and friends.

Services will be held on Saturday, October 7, 2023 at 1 PM, at the Clark Funeral Chapel and Cremation Service, 802-806 East Sevier Avenue, Kingsport.  Interment will follow at the Zion Cemetery, Baileyton, TN.
