Donald “Don” Wayne Miller, 67 a Northland resident of Kansas City, MO passed away Friday, April 15, 2022 at NorthCare Hospice with his loving family by his side. Don was born October 11, 1954 to Carl S. and Shirley R. (Witham) Miller in Kansas City, MO.

Don was united in marriage with Connie J. Gardner on May 16, 1987 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
He enjoyed any outdoor activities that took him close to a lake, a river or a pond. He especially loved to fish and always seemed to be the one in the group to catch the “big lunker.” Don was also an avid fan of the KC Royals, KC Chiefs and NASCAR.
He was a kind and loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, son, brother, uncle, nephew and cousin, and a good friend to many. He will be dearly missed by those who loved him.
