Charles “Charlie” Edwin Miller was born on January 7, 1956 to Charles Edward Miller and Lorraine (Hiller) Miller in Pierre, SD. Charlie grew up in Onida, SD and graduated from Sully Buttes High School in 1974. He went on to attend Lake Area Technical Institute in Watertown, SD studying building trades. He married Arlene Hrdlicka on June 3, 1978. To this union two children were born. He began his career working for DeSautell Construction with his cousin Wade Hiller. He then went on to work at Lamb’s Discount and finally Cenex Harvest States where we worked for over 25 years.

Charlie enjoyed hunting, fishing, gardening and cheering on the Green Bay Packers. As an avid outdoorsman he enjoyed spending time with his family camping and fishing along the Missouri River and hunting wildlife. He spent countless hours planting vegetable gardens and flowers especially petunias. Charlie’s most monumental moment as a packers fan was taking in a game at Lambeau Field with his children.

He is survived by his children Scott Miller of Wessington Springs, Laura (Thad) Jacobson of Florence; grandsons Colin and Devin Jacobson; mother Lorraine Miller of Onida, sister Brenda (Spike) King of Blunt, Niece Rachel (Cory) Comes of Blunt; Nephew Chip (Kendall) King of Highmore, great niece Carmyn Comes; great nephew Charles King; and special friend Kerri Hawkinson of Hoven.
