You could often find Rupert enjoying the great outdoors on the farm, whether he was clearing the land, cutting wood, or taking care of the animals. You never saw Rupert without his pipes; he never left home without them. Rupert was a true patriot. He loved his Lincoln LS and his dog, Buddy. Most importantly, Rupert adored his wife of 54 years and took great admiration and pride in his family.
Along with his wife, he will be greatly missed by his children, Rupert (Nancy) Miller Jr. and Rachelle Hamilton; grandchildren, Rupert Miller III, Evan Hamilton, Makayla Hamilton and Emily Miller; a brother, Randy Miller and sisters, Lorraine Campbell and Renee Long.
He was preceded in death by his parents and mother-in-law, China Higbie.
