Steven M. Miller, 38, of Philadelphia, and formerly Schuylkill Haven, was freed from the powers of addiction on Tuesday, November 24, 2020.
He was an amazing man who walked through life with a smile on his face and sunglasses. Steve loved all Philadelphia sports, music, sneakers, hats, but more than anything, his family and children. Taliah and Alex Miller were his pride and joy and there wasn’t a person he met that didn’t know he was a proud father. Steve knew how deeply his family loved him and never gave up hope and was by his side every step of the way. He always enjoyed a home-cooked meal when they were together.
Steve was born August 11, 1982 in Pottsville to Mark and Cheryl Shackelton Miller. After graduating from Schuylkill Haven Area High School, Class of 2000, he enlisted and served in the United States Navy.
During his years of addiction, Steve fought hard with everything he had to try and overcome the demons that go along with this disease. After 6 months of being sober, he relapsed and lost his battle.
In addition to his parents and his children, Steve is survived by sisters, Amy (Nick) Marrongelle, Orwigsburg, and Megan of Philadelphia. Grandparents, Carl and Shirley Shackelton, Cressona. Nephew and niece, Austin and Gianna Marrongelle. Many Aunts, Uncles and Cousins.
He was preceded in death by his Paternal Grandparents, Gary and Marion Miller.
