Keith W. Miller
January 26, 1926 - December 23, 2013

Keith Wayne Miller, 87, of Grand Junction passed away at the Grand Junction VA Medical Center on December 23, 2013.  

He was born in Delta, Colorado on January 26, 1926, to Fred and Buena Miller.  He left Delta High School prior to graduation to serve in the United States Navy during World War II, he served aboard the destroyer, USS Metcalf, and was injured aboard ship.  After the war he attended Mesa College and earned his teaching credentials at Colorado State Teachers College in Greeley.  

He married Gladys Mae Henshaw on September 12, 1948, and started his teaching career in Lamar, Colorado shortly thereafter.  In 1953, he contracted poliomyelitis during the national pandemic and moved to Grand Junction following his recovery from polio.  He taught history at Grand Junction High School and was part of the initial faculty at Central High School where he also served as the track and field coach.  He earned his Masters Degree in Counseling from Greeley and was a guidance counselor at Grand Junction High until 1965.  That year he was appointed as the director of continuing education at Mesa College where he touched many lives through his creation of programs to train tradesman in many disciplines.  

Following his retirement from Mesa College, he taught stained glass for several years at Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, New Mexico and maintained a glass studio in Grand Junction.  Many of his creations can still be seen around town.  

He was a member of the Grand Junction Lion's Club for many years and especially enjoyed his work with the annual Lions Club Carnival.  

Keith is survived by his wife of 65 years, Gladys; a son, Steve of Glendale, AZ; a daughter, Meredith of Grand Junction; two grandchildren, Amy Miller and KeriAnn Totton; and five great-grandchildren.  

Funeral arrangements are pending.  In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in his name to the Roice-Hurst Humane Society, 362 28 Road, Grand Junction, CO.
