Felton Miller

Felton Miller was born on March 1, 1938, in Lillie, Louisiana, to Grady Miller Sr. and Onedia Blake. He joined St. James Baptist Church in El Dorado, Arkansas, early in his life. He served as a faithful member of the Deacon Board for several decades and Brotherhood. Later, he joined Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist.

Felton Miller started working at a very early age. He was dedicated and loyal to driving big trucks for several decades. After he retired from driving big trucks, he started working on everyone's cars in the community. Felton worked at several different jobs: Cooper Tire, ConAgra, Dixie Maintenance, and several more jobs. He loved to BBQ for his family, friends, and everyone visiting, especially during holidays. Felton had several hobbies, including working on cars, fishing, going to Chick-A-Dilly, and sneaking up to EZ Mart to get a Pepsi drink. He loved watching Western movies. Felton loved talking about when he would drive big trucks on the road, old-time stories of his favorite pastimes, and he never met a stranger. Felton was a good, loving Family Man.

Felton and Rivers Miller united in Holy Matrimony on January 1, 1961, and remained together for 61 years until she was called into eternity on February 28, 2022.
