Death came to Heber Chase Miller, 52, well known L.D.S. church and civic man and manager of the Timpanogos hatchery, this morning at 7:30 o'clock in a local hospital. Mr. Miller underwent an operation for ulcers Wednesday. He had been in poor health for the past several months. He was born May 15, 1884 in Provo, a son of Charles Heber and Amanda Snow Miller. He attended the Provo city schools and the B.Y.U. and during his residence with his parents in the Third ward, was active in Sunday school work. He was called from the Third ward to give special aid in Sunday school work in the Grand View ward in 1901, and from 1904-05, represented the Third ward in the Southern States mission field. He married Henrietta Heal June 10, 1908, in the Salt Lake temple, and in 1912 they moved to Roosevelt, where Mr. Miller was engaged in the mercantile business for six years. In 1918, they returned to Provo, and have made their home here since that time. During their long residence in the Sixth ward, Mr. Miller served as first counselor to former Bishop John W. McAdam for four years. He had been living in the Bonneville ward until three weeks ago, when the family moved to the Pleasant View ward. He was a High Priest, and had been supervising the priesthood activities and had been active in genealogical work in Bonneville ward. For the past 12 years, he had managed the Timpanogos Hatchery. Surviving, in addition to his wife, are five sons and three daughters, C. Dresden, W. Elbert, O.

Life timeline of Heber Chase Miller

Heber Chase Miller was born on 15 May 1884
Heber Chase Miller was 15 years old when Spanish–American War: The Treaty of Paris is signed, officially ending the conflict. The Spanish–American War was fought between the United States and Spain in 1898. Hostilities began in the aftermath of the internal explosion of the USS Maine in Havana Harbor in Cuba, leading to US intervention in the Cuban War of Independence. American acquisition of Spain's Pacific possessions led to its involvement in the Philippine Revolution and ultimately in the Philippine–American War.
Heber Chase Miller was 21 years old when Albert Einstein publishes his first paper on the special theory of relativity. Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He is best known to the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.
Heber Chase Miller was 33 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
Heber Chase Miller was 45 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.
