Obituary -- Tyler "Maynard" Miller 1982-2017

Tyler Lane “Maynard” Miller, age 34 of Allendale was born on March 20, 1982 to Galen “Joker” Miller and Vickie (Robertson) Miller. He passed away from this life on Friday, January 6, 2017 at Albany Hospital after a courageous battle with esophageal cancer.

A friend to anyone who knew him, he was always quick to offer words of wisdom and wit, especially gifted with movie quotes. Maynard has always had a warm heart and strong religious beliefs, even from a young age. He was self-employed at MM Graphics of Grant City where he enjoyed designing T-shirts, logos, and signs for businesses and groups near and far. He was actively involved in the Masonic Lodge. On Saturday nights in the winter months, you find him playing pool and sharing stories with friends at the the Allendale Pool Hall, where he resided. Mechanical challenges were his specialty, whether it be restoring his father’s 1965 Plymouth Fury, competing with his race car “The Pink Panther” or racing 4-wheelers with friends. Always having a love for playing cards, he has been quoted “You have to play the hand that God has dealt us.”

Maynard is survived by his mother – Vickie, of the home, sister – Amber Hart (Gary), of Sheridan, nephew- Benjamin Hart and niece Emma Hart, Aunts – Mary Kay Lambert (Keith) of Allendale, MO; Diana Baker (Albert) of St. Joseph, MO, Uncles – Bill Robertson (Brenda) of Chelsea, AL; Roger Robertson (Charlene) of Grant City, MO; Emory Robertson (Sheryl) of Lamoni, IA. He is also survived by several cousins as well as numerous close friends who have come to be know as “The Boys” and are considered a part of the family.

He was preceded in death by his father – Galen (Joker) Miller, grandparents – Woodrow and Trula Robertson; Ralph and Jeanette Miller.
