Andy A. Miller, Jr, age 86, son of Andrew M. and Gertrude Miller, was born December 22, 1930, in Yoder, Kansas. He peacefully left this life to be with the Lord from his home near Leon, Iowa, on December 14, 2017.

Andy grew up on a farm close to Yoder, Kansas, and attended Harmony country school there. On October 26, 1950, he married Fannie Chupp. The couple farmed in Yoder, Kansas, until 1956, when they moved to Chouteau, Oklahoma. In 1962 they moved to Leon, Iowa, where Andy farmed until his retirement in 2011. His farming career included row crop, dairy, beef, and pork production. They were blessed with four children: Earl, Omar, Carol, and Darla.

Andy was a member of Salem Mennonite Church where he served in various positions. He had a strong faith in Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and prayed daily for his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He will long be remembered for his integrity and honesty. His friendliness and wonderful sense of humor endeared him to many. He was always a friend to children, and they, in turn, loved him.

Preceding him in death were his parents, son Earl, three sisters: Polly, Elizabeth, and Lydia; four brothers: William, Samuel, Moses, and Ervin.

Cherishing his memory are his wife of 67 years, Fannie; children: Omar and Rose Miller, Carol and Noah Yoder, Darla and Ivan Stoltzfus, all from Leon, and daughter-in-law Fannie Miller from Sarasota, Florida; 16 grandchildren: Matthew and Rekha Miller, Jason Miller, Mike and Jody Miller, Crystal and Zach Funk, Ashley and Brian Beachy, Lyndon and Katie Miller, Laban Miller, Karen Yoder, Jana and David Gingerich, Andrew and Nicole Yoder, Carla Weber, Ryan Yoder, Juanita and Mike Yutzy, Jessica and Galen Oesch, Janice and Daryn Yoder, and Jordan and Megan Stoltzfus; 18 great grandchildren; 4 step great grandchildren; nieces, nephews, and many friends.
