George "Albert" Miller, 90, of Olney, Md., became one of Heaven's angels at 9:08 a.m. Friday, Oct. 28, 2016, at his residence.
He was born July 31, 1926, in Limestone Township, Union County, a son of the late John Earl and Mary Rachel (Dauberman) Miller. On June 21, 1947, he married the love of his life, the former Ruby Irene Duke who passed away on Jan. 16, 2015.

Albert was a 1943 graduate of Mifflinburg High School and earned a bachelors of science in electrical engineering from Bucknell University in 1950. He was a Navy veteran serving in World War II until his honorable discharge on June 24, 1946.
George worked as a systems engineer for IBM Corporation for 39 years.
He was a member of the Ashton United Methodist Church, where he was chair of the Administrative Council, a junior high Sunday school teacher, where he made a significant impact on the lives of many teens of the church. He was actively involved alongside his wife Ruby, with the Missions Team, for more than 40 years. Albert was a member of Sandy Spring, Maryland Lions Club, where he held the office of president for two years, and was also a member of American Legion Post 68.
Albert enjoyed gardening, traveling, helping others, but most importantly spending time with his family. He often said the best job he ever had was taking care of his wife Ruby.
