Fisherman, lawman, joker, prankster, your best friend - and most of all, one big heart. No man stands taller than when he stoops to help a child catch a fish - a Tom Miller trademark - nobody did it better or as often. He will be missed.
You are reading in the newspaper that I am dead. Do not believe a word of it, for I have just started a new adventure.
I am now with my Savior. I am now in my real home. The body that I have no more use for is dead and gone. If you want to shed tears, make them tears of joy. I am rejoicing in heaven. Remember that I am with my Lord! This past Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018 was a time of great reunion.  I am once again with my parents, E.O. Miller and Beatrice Miller; wife, Linda; and all my loved ones that have gone before me, and will be together for all eternity.  
I have had a life of 77 years and have been blessed beyond belief with a loving family and friends.
I was born in St. George, Utah Nov. 14, 1940, and grew up in Ardmore. In 1958, graduated from Ardmore High School. Worked at Lake Texoma Lodge and attended Southeastern College working on a business degree. I changed course and went to University of Minnesota to Juvenile Officer School and studied Juvenile Law. Then went to University of Nevada at Reno, Nev., the college of Juvenile Justice. Went to work with Judge Brown and Judge Dillard as his juvenile officer and served as director of Youth Services.
Retired from Youth Services, bought a business in Madill, Tom’s Burger Hut. Sold the business and went to work for Sheriff Robert Denny and Bill Noland as their administrator of the new Detention Center, retiring in 1993.
Survivors include his son: Tom Miller Jr., and wife, Cindy; brothers, Donald and his wife, Beth, and Steve Miller; his granddaughters Emily and Angela Miller; great-grandchildren, Tegan Miller and Payton White; niece, Shaun Clare Miller; and nephew, Donald P. Miller.
The true wealth of a nation lies not in its gold or silver, but in its learning, wisdom and the uprightness of its sons and daughters.  
Memorial donations may be made to the Children’s Shelter of Ardmore or the Salvation Army.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 16, at the Bethel Baptist Church located at 126 K Street N.W., Ardmore.
