Sean Miller

September 24, 1971 — April 18, 2021

Kanorado, KS

On the afternoon of April 18, 2021, Sean departed Cheyenne County Hospital in Saint Francis, KS surrounded by family. Destination: The Big Fishing Hole in the Sky. Sean was 49 years old.

Sean was born to Donna Mitchell Miller and Michael “Mick” Miller on September 24th, 1971, in Goodland, KS. The oldest of two children, Sean was known for his big heart, quick wit, and a smart mouth.

He attended Goodland schools—lived, worked, hunted, and fished in various locations of Northwest Kansas all his life.  Shortly after high school, Sean snagged the catch of his life, Sandy and they tied the knot April 13th, 1991.

Sean was a proud and devoted father, grandfather, brother, son, uncle, and friend.  Together he and Sandy celebrated their Angel Child, Darcy, and wrangled four rowdy, equally stubborn boys who have all grown into fine young men.  Seth, Shay, Saje, and Shadd all enjoyed hunting, fishing, and working alongside their dad.

In his free time, Sean could be found tending to his turkeys, or cuddling his many chickens.  An avid outdoorsman, Sean enjoyed hunting, and a bad day’s fishing was better than a good day doing anything else... Well almost, Sean’s proudest accomplishment was gaining the title Grandpa.

Sean loved his family, grandkids, nieces, nephews, and friends whole heartedly.  Though we will all remember his colorful language and hand gestures, goofy faces, and practical jokes, mostly Sean will be remembered for his love and devotion to those closest to him.

Sean was preceded in death by infant daughter Darcy Lynn Miller, maternal grandparents- Donna and John Butts, paternal grandparents- Myron and Darlene Miller, and mother and father-in-law O.D. and “Janny” Mote.

Sean is survived by wife of 30 years Sandy Mote Miller, four sons- Seth (Cailee), Shay (Rachel), Saje (Nataly), and Shadd, grandchildren- Lila, Oliver, and Koah, parents- Donna Mitchell Miller, and Mick (Leslie) Miller, sisters- Tara Avelar (Ponch), Kelli Minor, and Randi Jo Gray (Malcolm), brother-in-law Tracy Mote (Jo), sisters-in-law Kelly Tipton (Randy), and Stephanie Rinehart (Ruben).  Sean is also survived by numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and close family friends.
