Lenn E. Miller, age 75, resident of Willard, Ohio, passed away suddenly on Saturday, April 6, 2013 at his home. He was born on April 7, 1937, son of the late Hess and Thelma (Bias) Miller, in Turtle Creek, West Virginia. He graduated from Scott High School in Madison, West Virginia in 1955 and also married his loving wife, Kathleen Copeland, in 1955. Lenn moved to Willard, Ohio in 1963 when he accepted a job on the B&O Railroad. He was a conductor and retired from CSX in 1997. Lenn was an avid fan of the West Virginia University football team. After retirement, he enjoyed fishing on Lake Erie, and spending time with his children and grandchildren. He also loved to cook fish for everyone. Lenn never met a person he did not like and could always strike up a conversation with any stranger.
Lenn is survived by his devoted wife of 57 years, Kathleen Miller; two children, David (Diane) Miller of Willard, and Cindy (Ron) Sokevitz of Plymouth; four grandchildren, Jacob and Taylor Miller, and Brandon and Brock Sokevitz; and one brother, Jerry Miller of North Carolina.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by one brother, Grandal Miller of Alaska.

My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family at this time of loss.
I only knew Lenn from the times we ran into each other at the Rec Center in Norwalk. He may have had the best sense of humor of any one I have ever met. He had an amazing ability to strike up a conversation with anyone at anytime on any subject. He was always bragging about his daughter in law, Diane. Always talking fishing. Each fall deciding he was going to give it up, and sell his boat. Each summer he would return with tales of his fishing adventures. He brightened the locker room and the weight room. I know you will miss him teribly. Even from the short periods of time I got to know him, I will miss him.
kathleen and family, please accept our condolences in your time of sorrow.. may you find some peace in knowing Our Lord is with you at this time.. We loved Lenn. Willy enjoyed him so much and loved fishing with him.. He tells people all the time that he had a hard time beating Lenn catching fish. I miss his laughing at my jokes.God Bless you and your family .
Kathleen and family please accept my heartfelt condolences as I was saddened to hear of Lenny’s passing. My father as well as I liked him very much. I worked with Lenn several years on the Railroad’s Akron Division. He was very kind to me as a young college student just “learning the ropes”. I have many many fond memories of my Railroad and fishing trips with Lenn that will last a lifetime.

Mrs. Miller, Cindy, David and families. Really glad I had the opportunity to hear a few of those conversations along with total strangers, while meeting up at the Rec in Norwalk. Most of the time we would talk Willard basketball, but all of the conversations were enjoyed by any within earshot, which had it’s share of laughter also. He often spoke of his family and was teary eyed more than once on how proud he was of each of you! Humbled to have had that small amount of time to share with him. God Bless!!
Kathleen, David and Cindy and Family;
I know Don welcomed Lenn into heaven! How those two exchanged fishing tales. May the many happy memories give you great comfort in the difficult days ahead.
