Patrick “Pat” Miller, 55, died of natural causes at Community-Hospital Fairfax, Fairfax, Missouri, on March 13, 2020.
Pat was married to Tiffany Farrow in Coronado, California, on September 20, 2003. He worked at several local businesses throughout his life, from working as a chef and manager of local restaurants, to working as a food inspector and packing house supervisor to American Family as a Policy Sales and Services Associate. He was a man of many trades. The only common thread at his different employment venues is that he created lasting and meaningful relationships everywhere he went.
Pat was a member of the Fairfax Baptist Church in Fairfax. He was also a member of the woodworkers guild and a proud mentor and supporter of Big Brothers Big Sisters. Pat was a follower of Jesus, a wonderful husband and father, a loyal friend and a hardworking employee. His goal in life was to be remembered as such, in that order.
He is survived by his wife, Tiffany (Farrow); his daughter, Kassi Ward and her husband, Justin, of Stewartsville, Missouri; his sons, Cole Miller and Connor Miller of Fairfax; his mentee and Godson, Will Recor, of St. Joseph, Missouri; his grandsons, Gavin and Carter Ward of Stewartsville; his mother, Linda Deming of Fairfax; his brothers, Rick Miller of Fairfax, Don Miller of St. Joseph, and Kevin Miller and Kenneth Miller of Millersville, Maryland; several step-siblings; and nieces and nephews.
A Celebration of Life service was held Tuesday, March 17, 2020, at Renovation Church, St. Joseph. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be sent to: Big Brothers Big Sisters St. Joseph, 3805 Oakland Ave, Ste. 101D, St. Joseph, MO 64506 in honor of his relationship to his mentee of nine years.
Arrangements were under the direction of Schooler Funeral Home, Fairfax.
