Thomas C. MILLER

January 28, 1992 ~ October 17, 2017 (age 25)

Thomas Christopher Miller, 25, of Pennsburg, Pa. died October 17, 2017 in his home. Born on 1/28/1992, he was the son of Thomas P. & Joanne M. (Brown) Miller of Pennsburg. Tommy attended St. Isidore Catholic School in Quakertown and Lansdale Catholic High School (Class of 2010). He graduated from Widener University in 2016 with a B.S. in Computer Science. From his Co-op experience at Burns Engineering and CRM Science, he chose to specialize in software development, using the Salesforce platform. He was more recently employed by GeoBlue, and prior to that Elap Services, both of King of Prussia. He also served as Director of IT, including software development, for Cooperative Provider Service Network located in Chester Springs Pa. Excelling in athletics and academics at a young age, he enjoyed basketball (St. Isid., AAU, LC: JV, V.) … volleyball … cliff jumping … computers … technology … software development … abstract thinking … music, esp. guitar … the #13 … the ocean … all water sports … rollercoasters … scary movies … the mountain cabin … his kittens and cats … giving great hugs … Christmas tree lights … chamomile tea …Cream of Wheat... making his specialty, Chicken Alfredo … cooking on the grill … wearing Gramps’s watch … and watching Painting with Bob Ross. Lately, prayer meetings and Eucharistic Adoration soothed his soul. He did NOT like track … dentists … spiders … and trophies. Tommy had a brilliant mind and unlimited potential. He was taken away from us too soon. After back surgery at 17, and trying to find relief from pain and graduate from college at the same time, life took a different turn. We found out one year ago that the signs and symptoms of an opioid problem can be so masked and concealed. He was just beginning to connect with others at meetings and hoping to survive this turmoil and the awful struggle of addiction. If this could happen to Tommy it could happen to anyone. We love you and will miss you dearly, Tommy! In addition to his parents he is survived by his, brother Daniel P. Miller, maternal grandmother Dorothy R. Brown of Barto, and paternal grandmother Patricia B. Horn (Robert) of Powder Valley. He is also survived by uncles and aunts: Eileen B. Park (William E., Jr.), Michael D. Brown, William E. Brown, Margie L. Hofmann (David), Gary B. Miller (Margaret), and his cousins, Holly (Tristan), Sarah, Devon, Billy, Jackie, Candie, David (Peggy), Brenda (Rob), Matthew, Alicia, Sam, Kelly, Ella, Lilly, Caslon and Slate. He was predeceased by his maternal grandfather Dr. Hugh E. Brown and paternal grandfather LeRoy O. Miller and Aunt Teresa B. Groves (Arthur).
