James Miller Death, Obituary – James Miller has reportedly died unexpectedly with loved ones, family and the entire community left heartbroken and in grievance, according to online sharing. On December 4th, 2022, James Irvin Miller, 68, of Dublin, Ohio, passed away after a valiant fight with cancer that lasted for 10 months. Jim Miller was born in Rushville, Indiana on September 22nd, 1954. His parents, Barbra Jane and Lester Gene Miller were his parents. After completing his high school studies at Rushville High School, he received a full golf scholarship to attend Ball State University.
He then went on to earn his master’s degree in education at The Ohio State University. Jim began his career as a teacher in Hagerstown, Indiana. In 1979, he moved on to Dublin City Schools where he has been ever since. Before he retired in 2007, he worked in the district in a variety of capacities, including as a teacher, principal, director of human resources, and interim superintendent. The distinction of having the library in Chapman Elementary School named after him was bestowed upon him while he was a student at Dublin City School.
Jim served as a role model for a great number of kids and faculty members over his more than three decades as the boy’s basketball coach. After he retired from Dublin City Schools, he continued his career in human resources at other Columbus area businesses. Jim is survived by his devoted wife, Allyson Ann, and their two bonus children, Zachary and Christian Bott. He is also survived by his siblings Shirley Jane Natemeier, Michael Gene Miller, and Wayne Lester Miller, as well as his mother and father-in-law Kathleen and Dr. Thomas Helmrath, his in-laws Jennifer and Dr. Michael Helmrath, and Susan and Christopher Helmrath, and a large number of cousins, nieces, and nephews.
McLovin, his best Wendy’s eating and Twinkie-loving canine buddy, passed away before him. Also, his father and mother had passed away before him. Jim was a scratch golfer (the only handicap he had was Allyson’s), an unending jokester, and a kind-hearted unselfish mentor who never missed a gameday “board” meeting. He was also an enthusiastic IU Hoosier fan. A heartfelt thank you goes out to Dr. Mathew Old, the nurses, and everyone else who worked at The James Cancer Hospital. Throughout Jim’s fight against cancer, you all worked tirelessly and provided caring care. On December 16th, 2022, from two in the afternoon to six in the evening, a Celebration of Life will be placed at Schoedinger Dublin, which is located at 5980 Perimeter Drive in Dublin, Ohio 43017.
