|Daniel Miller, Jr. age 77 of Boerne, Texas, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Saturday, June 9, 2012 in San Antonio, Texas.
He was a beloved man that touched many lives. His life’s work was teaching – formally for 33 years.
He was a favorite brother, uncle, teacher, adopted 'Texas' dad and mentor to many.
