Charles Mixson Miller, of Birmingham, Ala., passed away on December 25, 2020. A graveside service will be held with immediate family in Tuscaloosa at the Tuscaloosa Memorial Park. The Reverend Dr. John B. Hartman II will be officiating.
Charles was born on July 11, 1927 in Valdosta, Georgia, grew up in Columbia, South Carolina and then moved to Alabama where he spent the rest of his life. From a young age his love of God, through his faith in his Savior Jesus Christ, guided his life. His deep love for family and friends, the fun he brought to the life of those around him and his faithful service to his Church were reflections of this faith.

Charles served our nation during World War II in the United States Marine Corps from 1945-1946, received the World War II Victory Medal and is a member of the Marine Corps League. He had a distinguished 43 year career with Wyeth Laboratories, retiring in 1992 as District Sales Manager.
A devoted member of Independent Presbyterian Church, Charles served as a Deacon, Elder and President of the Congregation. He was a loyal member of the Saint Andrew’s Society, the Sons of the Revolution, and the Society of the Colonial Wars.
Charles is survived by his wife of 66 years Elizabeth Palmer Miller, daughter, Elizabeth Miller Hartman (John), daughter, Georgia Mixson Miller, son, Charles Mixson Miller Jr. (Chappell); grandchildren, John Blair Hartman III (Taylor), Charles Miller Hartman (Angie), Gordon Palmer Hartman, Palmer Corinne Miller and Adelaide Miller Niketas (Jackson), and five great-grandchildren.
