Jerry Lynn Miller, 73, went to be with his Lord and Savior, aka “The Big Racetrack” in the sky on November 13, 2023. He was born on October 23, 1950, in Alamance County to the late Henry Hurdle Miller and the late Nola Virginia McBroom. Jerry had many jobs that he loved throughout his lifetime, but he ultimately retired from Duke Hospital. Jerry was a man of God and loved the Lord. On Sundays, you could find him at church or if he was unable to attend due to health limitations, you would find him watching sermons on television, or his beloved phone and listening to gospel and Christian music. If you know Jerry, you know that he loved Nascar. He especially loved it when he was able to watch or go to a race with his son. Jerry also loved UNC Tarheels, football and basketball, making people laugh with his witty humor and last but not least, enjoying a delicious meal with family or friends.
Jerry is survived by his children, Jeremy Heith Miller, Heather Lynn Robbins and Kristen Brooke Miller. He is also survived by his sister Linda Riley.
Jerry is also survived by 7 grandchildren whom he loved dearly, Cayden Hill, Devyn Crittenton, Kylen Crittenton, Brayden Robbins, Landyn Robbins, Austin Sloan, and Taylor Wagoner.
The family will receive visitors from 12:00-2:00 p.m. on Saturday November 18, 2023, at Walker’s Funeral Home located at 204 N. Churton Street, Hillsborough, NC 27278.
The family will hold a Celebration of Life directly after visitation at the same location delivered by Rev. Ken Tilley.
The family will receive visitors after the service at the residence of Heather Robbins located at 3620 S. Jim Minor Rd, Haw River, NC 27258.
Jerry had a heart of gold and would give anyone the shirt off his back. He will surely be missed by all who knew and loved him.
Jerry said it best in his own words in a written prayer “Heavenly Father, my life is devoted to Christ, and I find my purpose and fulfillment in Him. Should the time come for me to depart from this world, I know that it will be a gain, as I will be in His eternal presence. Grant me the strength to live every moment for Christ’s glory and the assurance of the gain that awaits me in His embrace. In the name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.”
