Miller, Sr., Ed grew up in Bridgeport along with his now predeceased brothers Don and Fred. He proudly served in the Marines for 4 ½ years during the Vietnam conflict. Ed was immensely proud of his service to this country and expressed his patriotism for the United States throughout his life.

Ed was a proud member of the NRA and supported the Wounded Warriors as well as the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. He is survived by his loving and devoted wife Sandra Miller (nee Matthews); his loving daughter Christine O’Neill, her husband Robert, and their children Sloane, Calan, and Fiona; Noelle Lefebvre and her daughter Eva Marie; Jonna Mack-Papazaglou and her children Jacob and Alexa; Sean Mack, his wife Gina, and their children Oriana and Calista; as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews, friends and coworkers who all loved him and his passion for life. Along with his parents and brothers, Ed is also predeceased by his loving in-laws John and Marie Matthews. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated by Rev.
