The family respectfully requests that memorial donations be made to the Dundee Fire Company 12 union St. Dundee, 14837; of which he was a member for 73 years, joining in 1949. Roger was born March 13, 1929, the son of the late Raymond C. & Helen (Jayne) Miller. He graduated from Dundee Central School in 1947. He proudly served in the U.S. Army from 1947 to 1954 in Korea. He married Cora Jane Hess on December 13, 1952, they would have celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary in just a couple of months. When he was young he began working at his mother's restaurant ~ Miller's Restaurant on Main Street in Dundee and thus started his love for cooking. He went on to become a village mail carrier for the United States Postal Service and shortly moved to a Rural letter carrier until he retired in 1984. For many of his younger years Roger could be found in his garage on Hollister Street butchering and processing hundreds of deer, pigs, cows etc. Family, friends and hunting buddies spent countless evenings gathering in the garage. He enjoyed running a pig farm with his oldest Brother Clayte for many years. Roger owned and operated Miller's Catering for decades where many people enjoyed his famous Roast Beef and chicken & gravy with biscuits. Roger took his cooking skills on the road and had booths at The Windmill Farm & Craft Market in Penn Yan, Hanna Junction in Canandaigua and The Carousel Market in Elmira. Above all Roger loved his wife, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and immensely enjoyed family and friend get togethers. He loved telling stories around the fire pit with a beer in his hand and a cigar in his mouth. He passed his love for hunting on to any child and grandchild that would listen and taught them everything they needed to know about hunting and taking care of their deer. He is loved and will be dearly missed by his wife Cora Jane of Dundee; His children Trudy (George) Farrell of Dundee, Tami Miller of Penn Yan, Ted (Kate) Miller and Roger C.
