Henry "Hank" Miller Obituary

Henry Dale “Hank” Miller, 88, of Warsaw, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loved ones at his home on Thursday, February 1, 2024.

Hank was born on May 15, 1935, at the family home in Sutter, Illinois. On April 13, 1958, he was united in marriage to Gloria Bowles in Keokuk, Iowa. She survives.

Hank held several jobs throughout the years, working as a mechanic/shop foreman at the Mac Rambler, AMC and GMC Truck dealership in Keokuk Iowa; as shop foreman at John Deere Valley Supply Construction Equipment in Keokuk Iowa and driving for St. Louis Gear Company, Keokuk Iowa. However, his joy was found in farming, working as a farmer for his entire life even while working full time at other jobs.

Hank proudly served his country in the United States Army during the Korean Conflict and was a member of the Hamilton VFW. He enjoyed deer hunting, reading, listening to country music and square dancing, where he met his wife of sixty-five years. He was known as “Hammering Hank” or “Handy Hank” for his ability to fix, repair or weld anything. But to his grandchildren he was simply known as “Poppy”. Poppy was the go-to person for his grandchildren for tractor rides around the farm or help when a vehicle broke down. Hank was a very private person, but he could always be found enjoying his favorite meal, Chicken Night at DJs in Warsaw.

Hank is survived by his wife Gloria of Warsaw; his son Michael Miller of Hamilton; his daughter Carla McClain of Nauvoo, Illinois; five grandchildren: Jonathan Miller of Hamilton, Justin Miller of Hamilton, Amy (Luke) Newlan of New London, Iowa, Adam Miller of Keokuk, Iowa and Alexis (Justin) Woolverton of Niota, Illinois; five great-grandchildren: Alex and Aaron Brotherton, Abigail Newlan, and Briley and Natalie Miller; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Hank is preceded in death by his parents, his granddaughter Danielle McClain; and seven siblings: Nancy Hitz, Vera Bright, Andy Miller, John Miller, Walter “Popeye” Miller, Jerry Miller, August “Butch” Miller.
