Sidney Guy Miller, 91, a long-standing resident of Brandon Oaks in Roanoke, Va., died on Friday, April 24, 2020. He was born on September 23, 1928 in Jerome, Va., son of the late Pius and Rebecca Miller. Sidney was preceded in death by his daughter, Marlene; his son, Albert Nugue; five sisters, Charlotte, Marie, Sarah, Laura and Nina; and five brothers, Stanley, Joby, Miley, Aldine and George.

He is survived by his wife of 70 years, Wanda Ashley Miller; two brothers, Warren and Gordon; four children and their spouses, Dennis Miller of Manassas, Va., Michael S. Miller (Nancy) of Charlottesville, Va., Jerry Miller (Lee) of Manassas, Va., and Antonio “Tony” Nugue (Brooke) of Roanoke; his grandchildren and their spouses, Timothy Nugue (Dawn), Michael Richards Miller (Linda), Jessica Miller, Matthew Miller (Emily), and Sydney Miller; and six great-grandchildren, Nico, Liam, Alexa, Skylar, Anderson and Isaiah.

Sidney attended Berea College in Berea, Kentucky, and was a long-standing member of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Roanoke. He spent his entire working career of 47 years with Leggett department stores (now Belk), rising to become the general manager of the Roanoke stores and a regional manager for the organization, responsible for a territory that included stores located throughout Virginia, as well as in West Virginia and Maryland.
For many years, Sidney was actively involved with the Rescue Mission of Roanoke and his church. In 2002, in recognition of a lifetime spent in helping others, he received the Virginia Governor’s Community Service and Volunteerism Award.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines, a memorial service and celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Donations in Sidney’s memory can be made to care for and preserve the Miller Family Gardens, St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, 1008 Franklin Road, SW, Roanoke, Va. 24016 or visit www.stmarksroanoke.org. Online condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.oakeys.com.

To the Miller family, I had the pleasure to work at Leggett when Mr. Miller was the manager. He was a fair and honest boss. I really enjoyed talking to him when he would pass by my department. Thank you Mr. Miller for making my job more pleasant, Heavenly Father embrace this family into Your loving arms filling them with Your peace, love, joy and comfort during this sad time and on.

I have known Mr. Miller for over 30 years. He was the then manager of Leggett at Tanglewood Mall when our optometric practice started Leggett Vision. While that venture did not work out as planned, Mr. Miller was a constant source of encouragement and help throughout our planning stages, implementation, and business. What a true gentleman. I was honored to have Mr Miller come in for an eye exam within the past year or so. It was a happy and special visit down memory lane. I am better off for having known and respected such a kind and gentle soul. He taught me valuable lessons of how to treat people. He will be missed by many people but has certainly left our world a better place. May his memory be a blessing to his friends and family. Miles Newman
