Obituary of Sheldon Miller

Surrounded by family, Sheldon J. Miller, age 61, passed away in Bellingham on June 9, 2017. Sheldon was born on January 28, 1956 in Bellingham to George and Joan (Whetter) Miller. He attended Nooksack Valley Schools, graduating in 1974 after winning the State Basketball Championship. Sheldon graduated from Washington State University in 1979 with a BA in Education. He worked as a Guidance Counselor at Blaine High School before beginning his career in Moulding and Millwork with Metrie in Ferndale in 1990. Sheldon’s love of athletics and sports extended far beyond high school, coaching basketball at Blaine High School, coaching his kids’ little league baseball and basketball teams, and playing softball. Sheldon prided himself as a collector with an extensive collection of baseball cards and die cast toys. Sheldon is survived by his wife Lynn Miller, children Matthew (Aliya), Andrew (Tayler), and Madison Miller, step-children Austin Roy, and Cheyanne Bennett, and two grandchildren on the way.
