Obituary for Augustus C. Miller

August 12, 2016
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Augustus C., a lifelong resident of Phila., made his transition into Heaven peacefully & comfortably in his home on Friday, August 12th, 2016 at the age of 79.
He was the loving husband for 60 yrs. to Ann (nee Stern); beloved father of Deborah Clark (Wayne) and the late David Miller and the late Karen Benner; devoted grandfather to 13 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. He is survived by his sister, Mary Anne Long, and was preceded in death by his two bbrothers, William Miller, and Fredrick Miller.

A graduate of Mastbaum Vocational School, he married his high school sweetheart in 1955, and then served 3 years in the US Army and 24 years with the Phila. Police Force. He retired from the Phila. Police Dept. as a Captain in 1984 to pursue his love of flying, becoming a Flight Instructor and Traffic Reporter/Pilot for ARCO Go Patrol, Shadow Traffic, first for Marlin Aviation, and then Hortman Aviation Services. He ended his flying days as a Charter Pilot, when he became "grounded" from flying due to health complications.

Gus will long be remembered by his family for passing on his faith and love of his Saviour, Jesus Christ. His motto late in life was "The Three F's" - Faith, Family, and Friends. His life verse was Romans 8:28: And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Though he will be greatly missed by all, because of Calvary we have the blessed assurance that our goodbyes end in "hello".

Family and Friends are invited to Gus's Life Celebration on Sept. 10th at 1:00 p.m. at the New Life Community Church, 2680 Huntingdon Pike, Huntindon Valley, PA 19006.
