Obituary

Harold Clyde Miller, 93 years young, of Norwich, went to be with the Lord on August 13, 2019 after a brief illness. Clyde was born in Buffalo, NY to Harold and Agnes (Snyder) Miller on January 17, 1926. He was predeceased by an infant daughter, Laurie Lee, and son, Duane “Spike” Miller. Clyde is survived by his loving wife of 68 years, Arleta “Ockie” Miller; sons Steve Miller, of Arizona, John Pat and his wife, Donna, of Norwich, and Rex C. Miller, of Arizona; and daughter Marcy and Rick Golley, of Norwich. Also surviving are his grandchildren Kim Kreiner, Rebecca Keyes and family, Tim and Julia Miller, of Norwich, and Tom Miller and Danielle, of Cazenovia; great-grandchildren Alyson Kreiner, Cole and Carson Keyes, Baylen and Brayton Miller, and Seth Miller. Also remaining is his loving sister, Helen Gibbon, of Norwich, and her attentive family, as well as many nieces and nephews who thought the world of their “Uncle Clyde.” Clyde’s longtime friend and traveling companion, Douglas Pomeroy, and his wife, Mary, of South New Berlin, also survive. They not only brought Clyde miles of enjoyment, but also kept him supplied with their homemade goodies.

Clyde is best remembered for his many years of running Miller Movers and Trailer Park, as well as his 30-plus years as a school bus driver for Norwich City School Bus #5, and for being the founding member along with his wife, Arleta, of the Rolling Antiquers Old Car Club. He was a fixture at Eicke’s Restaurant, in Norwich, and Trackside Diner, in Sidney, and was always catered to by Bonnie. Clyde’s smile and humor will be missed by many.

Clyde served in the US Navy as Radioman Third Class aboard the USS Atlanta after training at Sampson, NY from June 1944 to June 1946. He saw and endured many adventures there, including a typhoon that did more damage to the fleet than the enemy, and going ashore in Japan after the bombing of Hiroshima. Clyde also spent time with his father, Harold, who was also in the Navy, in Hawaii. He enjoyed his trip to Washington, DC in 2015 to see the WWII memorial as a guest of honor of Flight Mission 5 out of Syracuse, and was ready to turn around and go back the next weekend!

To honors Clyde’s wishes, there will be no funeral or calling hours. Burial will take place at Mt. Hope Cemetery at the convenience of the family. A private family service will be held at a later date. Contributions in Clyde’s memory may be made to the UHS Senior Living Memorial Fund, 179 N. Broad St., Norwich, NY 13815, or to the Chenango SPCA, 6160 County Road 32, Norwich, NY 13815. The family wishes to convey their gratitude to the staff at Chenango Memorial Hospital for their loving care of our parents, Clyde and Arleta, and for all the well-wishers who saw Clyde there on a daily basis as he visited his wife, Arleta.

I met Clyde about 25 years ago buying Ford parts from him at the Carlisle Car Show & Flea Market. After a few years I even made a trip up to his place in Norwich to look thru his Ford parts and ended up going back a year or 2 later. He always amazed me with his bountiful energy. He explained how he excavated the pond out back and how he filled the basement with firewood that he collected and split to heat the house thru the winter. Clyde told me of how he would move a family to another town and then while he was there with an empty truck he would visit the local Ford dealer and try to fill his moving truck with obsolete Ford parts to bring back to his place. I would sometimes run into Clyde while he was parts hunting at Carlisle, Hershey or Rhinebeck and we would talk and catch up. He was an amazing guy and yes, he did always seem to wear a smile!

Clyde was a great neighbor. Over the years he moved many members of our family showing great concern and punctuality. His men never batted a eye when asked to move a piano that they had already moved once or twice before. He is probably quite busy moving clouds for the angels.
