Robert Park Miller age 83 of Hendersonville, TN. passed away on Thursday September 12th 2019 in Gallatin, TN.

In recent days he was lovingly referred to as “Sheriff”. His legacy is his devotion and the love he had for my mom, Emma Sue. He cared for her daily for over a year as she was bedridden from a stroke. He adopted many of the nursing home residents caring for them as family. Park loved many things, he was a fierce loving husband, daddy, granddaddy, uncle and friend. He loved wood carving, fishing and achieved a black belt in karate in younger years. He and mom even enjoyed square dancing. More recently he became an elder at Luna Lane Church of Christ. He never missed an opportunity to publicly thank our policemen and veterans for their service to our public. He was a private, humble giving man who loved to help people. He believed it was his job to give and love even if the situation was uncomfortable for some.

Funeral Services for Mr. Miller will be held on Friday September 20th 2019 at 10:00AM in the Chapel of Hendersonville Funeral Home. The family will receive visitors on Thursday September 19th from 6:00PM-8:00PM at Hendersonville Funeral Home.

    Park was a wonderful Christian man who was loved by many. He was my Sunday school teacher for many years when I was a little girl and we’ve gone to Church together ever since then. His love for his wife, Emma Sue, was such an example to all of how a true marriage should be. He loved her unconditionally and wholeheartedly. Thank you for all your examples through the many years of how you lived your life. Well done, though good and faithful servant……….until we meet again my friend.

    Park will be missed by his family and friends. He is my daughter-in-laws Uncle. We have enjoyed sharing Christmas time with him and his wife Sue at my sons and daughter-in-laws home each year. I know he is without pain and he is with our LORD and Savior now.

    Susan, Larry and I were so sorry to learn of your Dad’s death. He and Emma Sue, Larry and I got to be regular Sunday lunch partners. I think Black Eyed Peas Restaurant was his favorite. Often we went to others, They were certainly a nice Christian couple to share time with. Thank God we got to share time with them.

    Park was an Elder at Luna lane Church of Christ!! He was a true Sheppard !! He and Emma Sue were our best advocates for our small congregation !! When I say he will be missed so much it’s just not enough words to express our deep love for these two Christian people !! We praise God he is with him and pray that we can recover from the loss of this fine man!! It does my heart well to say I believe we made Park a better man by choosing him to be over our sheepfold !! He took it seriously and made us his special folks !! Love this man and his family!!!

    So very sorry for your loss. Always enjoyed seeing you all when I visited Aunt Mildred. She sure loved her family and was so proud of her two boys and their families. Her home was filled with her treasured photos of you all and she always filled me in on what you all were doing.

    I’m a co-worker of his daughter Susan and from the stories she told me about life with her father I can tell he was a great and compassionate man who loved his family and friends. Rest on Mr Miller heaven has a great angel.

    Emma Sue and I taught at the same school for many years. We went to Europe together with a group of teachers. She loved Park and Susan with all her heart. After she and Park retired they were always together. We often ate lunch out at different places. Park was always the gentleman watching out for Emma Sue. They traveled to the Holy Land and were so excited to see the places were Jesus went. What wonderful Christians! What devotion, love, and care Park always had for His wife! He was a follower of Christ , a great example for others to follow. He will be at Heaven’s gate, waiting for Emma Sue.

    I’ve missed Park setting behind me at church. He used to pull my hair. He always said he wanted to make sure I wasn’t falling asleep. Emma Sue would just roll her eyes at him. Sweet man! My thoughts and prayers are with Emma Sue and the rest of his family.
