Paul J. Miller
August 3, 1988 — July 5, 2010
At 3pm on Independence Day, 2010, Paul Miller hugged and kissed his mom Eileen farewell for what neither could possibly know would be the last time.
Paul was heading out to a party and ended up spending the night with friends, then headed for home the next morning, via PA State Route 33.
Paul’s thing in life was baseball and his passion was for the Yankees.
Eileen says that she always knew he was going to play for Lackawana College when he got there, but he knew by then that he was never going to play for the Yankees because he said “I’ve really got to buckle down and I’m just going to stick to my academics right now…” Eileen knew when he said this that he had become a man.
