Herbert S. Miller of Kennesaw, GA passed away at Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital on October 20, 2022, surrounded by his loving family. He was 79 years old.
A celebration of life and visitation will be held at Poole Funeral Home in Woodstock, GA on Sunday, November 6, 2022, from 1:00 - 4:00 pm.
Herb was the son of Morris and Dorothy Miller. He was born on February 5, 1943, in Wakefield, MA and grew up in Peabody, MA. After attending Boston State College, he enlisted in the US Air Force during the Vietnam War and was stationed at Dow Air Force Base in Bangor, ME. He received an honorable discharge after serving four years. In 1967 he began his career with IBM, starting as a Computer Tech Engineer, and retired in 2010 after 43 years of loyal service.
In 1975 Herb married his sweetheart, Marie, and together they had one daughter, Andrea. The family lived in the Boston area until 1991 when they relocated with IBM to Atlanta and eventually settled in Kennesaw, GA.
In his early years, Herb enjoyed boating, snorkeling, and scuba diving. For most of his life, he was an avid fisherman and enjoyed many years of catching bass in Chastain Lakes with his buddies.
He also enjoyed music, playing the saxophone, bowling, photography, and card games. Herb loved sci-fi television shows and movies and was also a voracious reader of mystery novels.
You could always find him manning the grill, remodeling the house, and refinishing furniture with Marie. Herb loved to indulge in his wife’s homemade Italian cuisine and could never pass up a meatball sub.
He is preceded in death by his parents and sister, Judith.
Herb is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Marie; his daughter, Andrea Martinez; son-in-law, Gerardo; granddaughter, Gianna; grandson, Christian; and several cousins in the New England area.
In lieu of flowers, the family prefers a donation in Herb’s memory to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at www.stjude.org.
