Amesbury, MA - Dennis Warren Miller, 61, of Amesbury, passed away unexpectedly on October 8, 2019.
He was born in Newburyport to the late Sarah (Boyden) and late Donald Mitchell. A 1977 graduate of Amesbury High School, Dennis went on to serve in the United States Marine Corps until 1982. Upon his return, he met the love of his life Robin and they were married for 36 years. Into his adult life, he enjoyed playing softball and karate, camping with his family, scrapbooking historical events and helping with maintenance projects and repairs at his church.
He worked tirelessly and faithfully for Eastern Lumber Co. until the late 80's and later for Airborne Express/DHL for more than 16 years where he was a proud member of Teamsters Local 25. He was presently working and enjoying the night shift for Lindt in Stratham, NH. An avid runner and most recently walker, he could be seen walking all over town. In his words, he was a "big history buff" and over the last several years took pride in researching local church steeples to document and photograph the bells found there.
A proud father, Dennis coached and supported his daughter's endeavors their whole lives. Over the last two and a half years, he had found a new purpose and truly embraced his role as "Pappy" to his granddaughter who brought him the most joy. He is survived by his loving and loyal wife Robin Jean (Mager) Miller; daughters, Sarah Ann Brown, son-in-law Brendon and granddaughter Lilly Jean, Lindsey Nicole and son-in-law Luke Alley; brother Dale Mitchell and wife Michelle; sister, Bernadette Greenwood and husband Norman; brother-in-law Jeffrey Mager and wife Tammy; brother-in-law, Larry DeMarco; his beloved cat Marco, several nieces and nephews, cousins, dear friends and his entire congregation.

Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to a celebration of life on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 from 4 to 8 p.m. at 35 Water Street, Amesbury, MA, the Bartley building.

I am so sad to hear about Dennis and send a virtual hug to the Miller family. This is a beautifully written obituary. I grew up in Amesbury alongside his daughter, Lindsay, and remember him well. My memory of Dennis is as a warm, considerate person who always made me feel welcome. In my mind, I see him standing on the grass near the softball field, clapping and smiling and making us feel important; he knows everyone’s name and encourages each girl at every play. I am grateful for these memories and the small role he played in my childhood. This is a tremendous loss to his family and to Amesbury. To the Miller family: I am so sorry. “Recovery inside grief is always a moving point of balan...ce. There isn’t any end point. While it may not always be this acutely heavy, your grief, like your love, will always be part of you.” (Megan Divine, It's OK That You're Not OK – which highly recommend).Read more

Dennis was a Wonderful man! He would always walk by my place and make kind comments on the flowers or whatever came to mind. He wads easy to talk to, and always was a real gentleman. Even though I didn't hang around him in our childhood years, I felt like I knew him as a good friend in the little time we spoke together! Yes, he will be sadly missed! It was a pleasure to know him. I'm sorry for the family for your loss. The memories will be forever, and for that I am truly thankful. Rest In Peace Dennis!
Your Friend,
Robert Blair & Sally G Talas Criswell

I have such warm memories of my friendship with Dennis from AHS. Spent many a cold Friday night at football games together. Once he was your friend he was always your friend. I remember Dennis taking the time to come to NH to help me build my first home. I am so very saddened to hear of your loss. You have my deepest condolences.
