Marvin Scott Miller of Bakersville NC, Husband, Father, Best Paw Ever, Brother, Friend, Farmer, and Preacher.
Preceded in death by Father Floyd, Mother Modine, Sister Brenda, and Brother Mike
Survived by Wife Brenda, Sisters Patricia Cantrell and Lisa Thomas, Daughter Angel Miller, Sons Brandon Miller (wife Crystal), Seth Miller (wife Deandra), Josh Miller (wife Jennifer), and Caleb Miller (wife Savannah) and Grandchildren Beth Pressley, Zach Pressley (Wife Breanna), Jesse Pressley (Wife Leah), Malachi, Silas, Lanie, Allie, Rachel, Holden, Tristan, Charlie, Rourie, Walter, and Annaleigh Miller.
Marvin was truly loved by his family and many in the community who had the privilege of meeting him. He was a pillar of the community who served as a County Commissioner, School Board member, Prison Ministry Board member, Mayland Community College Board member, and Pastored Pigeon Roost Church for over 30 years. Marvin also worked as a contractor for his company, Mountaineer Builders. Over the years he has built many homes and churches as well as relationships with many in the community. Marvin enjoyed spending his time with his grandchildren singing hymns and praise songs, riding the gator, working on the farm, and building campfires in the woods. Marvin himself would say that his greatest accomplishments in life would be the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and the raising of his children and grandchildren in “the nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Eph 6:4). “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!” (Psalm 127:3-5a). Marvin’s life was marked with the love of God. It could be seen in his conversations, his actions, and his consistent reading of scripture. Marvin will be missed by all who loved him. This sorrow is short lived in the context of eternity. His eternity is with Christ, the Son of God who sacrificed Himself freely for the sins of the world. Marvin’s legacy is to Glorify God and not to gain anything from this world “For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world but lose his soul” (Mark 8:36).
Visitation of family and friends will be at Bear Creek Baptist Church on Tuesday, June 13th, 2023, from 5pm to 7:30pm. There will be a private burial for the family on Wednesday
