Lincoln S. Miller, Jr. Obituary

Lincoln S. Miller, Jr., 80, of Mechanicsburg, PA and Sarasota, FL, passed away Monday, May 13, 2024 at UPMC West Shore Hospital while in the arms of his loving wife. Born February 6, 1944, in Del Rio, TX, he was the son of the late Mary Virginia (Stauffer) and Lincoln S. Miller Sr.


Lincoln was a graduate of Mechanicsburg Area High School and Bloomsburg University, where he developed an incredible mind for business and went on to have a long successful career at AMP Inc. While there, he was a well-respected leader, a mentor to many and received recognition for several distinguished contributions, retiring there in 1998 as Executive Vice President.


Linc was an avid Penn State football fan and annually tracked all recruiting moves and statistics of incoming recruits. In his younger years, he enjoyed hunting with his son and brothers-in-law, and was a master trout fisherman, embracing the challenge of catching Browns, Rainbows and the all too elusive native Brook Trout of the Yellow Breeches and Stoney Creeks. Additionally, time on the golf course was fun, but was really just a warm-up to the famously intense poker games at the end of play. His personal interests also included studying war history, reading and following the many adventures of his grandchildren.


Lincoln was a member of AMPRA; The Yellow Breeches Anglers and Conservation Association; a past member of the American Legion Post 109 Mechanicsburg and American Legion Post 26 Dillsburg; and a lifetime member of The Mechanicsburg Club. Although a Christian believer, Linc was not currently affiliated with any formal religious organization.


He is survived by his wife of 33 years, Deborah Shearer Miller; daughter-in-law Jayna M. Miller; grandchildren, Aubrey S. Cornes (Tommy), Olivia A. Martinez (Sebastean), U.S. Navy Lt. Stephen C. Miller, Jr. (Alexandra), and Samantha A. Miller; great-grandchildren Adalyn, Leonardo, Oliver, and soon to be born, Owen; as well as his sweet Brittany pup, Gracie Mae. He is also survived by a sister, Lynne Dee Hassler (Randy); several nieces, nephews and in-laws; and many long-time Bloomsburg and AMP Inc. friends. In addition to his parents, Linc was preceded in death by his first wife, Sherrill A. (Moll) Miller, and his beloved son, Stephen C. Miller Sr.


Linc was a good and generous man, and was dedicated most notably to his family.


Funeral Services will be conducted by Pastor Heather Wurst, at 11:00 AM, Monday, May 20, 2024, at Malpezzi Funeral Home, 8 Market Plaza Way, Mechanicsburg. Visitation will be held from 10:00 AM until the time of service. Burial will follow at Mechanicsburg Cemetery.


In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are welcome to the Yellow Breeches Anglers and Conservation Association, Inc. (PO Box 1, Boiling Springs, PA 17007-0001), and the Wounded Warrior Project (www.support.woundedwarriorproject.org).
