Al was an avid Purdue fan, reader, enjoyed cooking and traveling and was most happy when spending time with his family on the lake boating. He was so proud of his children, Jennifer Hughs (Chad), Kristina Miller, Douglas Miller (Abby) and his grandchildren Cora Hughs, Jacob Hughs, Nathaniel Foster, Nikolas Foster, and Hannah Johnson. Al is survived by his parents, Ramon and Lois Miller; wife, Marcia Miller; siblings, David Miller (Cindy) Sun Lakes, Arizona, Ramona Lawson (Wynn) West Lafayette, Indiana, and Angela Dimmich West Lafayette, Indiana; and many nieces and nephews.
