Herman Louis “Lou” Miller
May 23, 1957 – August 29, 2017
Herman Louis Miller fought the good fight, but ultimately lost his battle with cancer on Tuesday, August 29 surrounded by family and friends.
Known as “the fix-it guy”, Lou could be found either on the top rung of a ladder or on his hands and knees always repairing something somewhere. In fact, he spent the last two decades-plus working as the Facilities Supervisor at LOUD Technologies (Mackie), getting paid to do what he loves! He was always willing to give a helping hand to friends and family with their personal repairs, as well.
Lou’s favorite thing to do was work with his hands, although riding his Harley with friends on a warm day was a close second.
When word of Lou’s passing was announced, it became obvious the impact he had on those around him. People shared amazing stories, pictures and spoke of his infectious laugh… he was always ready with a joke or two, as well.
Lou was born on May 23rd, 1957 in Long Beach, CA, but grew up in Washington state. He is survived by his sister Alice Fay Miller, half-brothers Charles Edward Johnson and Richard Ashley Johnson, half-sister Patricia Gail Johnson and his beloved speckled hound, Tucker.
A “Celebration of Life” will be held on Friday, September 22 at one of Lou’s favorite spots – Todo Mexico in Snohomish – from 3-10 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
As they say, “Grief is the price of love, but well worth it.” Gone, but never forgotten. RIP Lou, you were one-of-a-kind and are dearly missed.
