HEBER MILLER PASSES AWAY AT HOSPITAL
Manager of Provo Hatchery Dies After Operation For Long Ailment.
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.
