The Reverend George Frederick Miller, Jr.
(July 29, 1922 - April 2, 2009)

Reverend George Miller Jr.

The Reverend George Frederick Miller, Jr., passed away at Wheeling Medical Center, on Thursday, April 2, 2009, of natural causes. Mr. Miller held a bachelor of arts from the University of Oklahoma, a bachelor of divinity from the University of Chicago, and a master of education from Harvard University. Miller was an ordained minister in both the United Church of Christ and the Disciples of Christ.

From 1946 to 1966, Miller held a number of administrative positions at Aleppo College (Aleppo, Syria), including dean of students and acting president. From 1966 to 1986, he worked at the American University of Beirut, from which he retired as director of the Office of Tests and Measurements and University Chaplain. In Beirut, he was a member of the boards of trustees of the Near East School of Theology and the American Community School, wrote a regular column as theater and music critic for Monday Morning, an English-language weekly magazine, and was treasurer of the Community Church.

From 1986 until his passing, Miller served as docent and genealogist at the Campbell Mansion at Bethany College, where he computerized the Campbell Family Genealogy and published the genealogy for Historic Bethany. Throughout his years in Bethany, he received numerous accolades, including the Outstanding Service to Bethany College Award and the George F. Miller, II, Exemplary Service Award from Bethany Memorial Church.

Miller is survived by his wife of 52 years, Siham Kara-Elias Miller; his sons, George III, Thomas, and Martyn; his daughters-in-law, Nawal, Cindy, and Nada; his eight grandchildren, Oona, Emma, Maysa, Maia, Matthew, Siham, Lina, and George IV; his sister, Margaret Carrington; his sister-in-law, Soumaya; his brother-in-law, Riad; and his cats, Coco, Yumyum, and Scruffy.
