Obituary of Brandon Thomas Miller

Brandon Thomas Miller was born March 11, 1992 in Wayne, Michigan. He was one of three children born from the union of his parents: Robert E. Miller and Donell L. (Millls) Hughes. He received his education by attending Huron High School in New Boston and graduated with the Class of 2010.

Brandon enjoyed working with his hands and held numerous jobs as a laborer gaining as much experience as he could at each place of employment. He loved being outdoors and spent countless hours hunting, shooting skeet, canoeing and spending time around the bon fire with family and friends.  

Always putting others before himself, he was around to lend a hand to anyone in need. His sweet personality made it easy for him to make lasting friendships.  He had a heart of gold and could light up a room when he walked in. He enjoyed traveling the world to places including Alaska, Amsterdam and the Caribbean.

Above anything, Brandon loved spending time with his family. He adored his niece Ellie, as she was his pride and joy. Brandon had a special relationship with God and always kept his cross necklace close to his heart. He had an obsession with hats and wouldn’t be caught not wearing one.

His kind and loving personality, contagious smile and selfless nature are just a few things that will be deeply missed by those who knew him. There will forever be a void in the hearts of those closest to him.

Brandon Thomas Miller, age 26, of Belleville, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, December 15, 2018. His passing is preceded by his paternal grandparents: Marilyn Bodden and Thomas Miller.
