LINDSAY NOEL MILLER 1938-2022
Lindsay Miller passed away late afternoon on Friday, August 5, 2022 at his home in Smithfield, Utah.
Lindsay was an active member in the Smithfield 2nd Ward where he enjoyed the friendships that were developed and being a part of his ward family. Lindsay was a good man who had a strong firm testimony of the Gospel, of his love and faith in God, and in his Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ. He was a good example to all, especially his wife. He honored his Priesthood and was obedient to his covenants. Lindsay met Deanne Sorensen Johnson later in his life. They were married on November 12, 1994. Deanne became his eternal companion in the Manila Philippines Temple on December 13, 1996. In August 1999, Lindsay retired from his employment at Church Headquarters. Lindsay and Deanne then traveled extensively taking several trips throughout the states. They also served two missions in the Little Rock Arkansas Mission, a total of 3.5 years. Lindsay enjoyed reading various kinds of books, collecting classic cars, coins, and stuffed animals. He planned trips to Disneyland and various other fun places for and the grandkids (Karlee, Cache and Gracie Nielson). He had a big heart and helped Deanne's daughter’s, Stacy Johnson Nielson's (deceased 2011) family in many ways when needed. In his own way, he enjoyed being grandpa not only to the Nielson kids but to Nate Long, Karlee's husband, and to Rachel, Cache's wife. Lindsay was presently a great grandpa to Lucy Stacy Long 3 1/2, Annie Cate Long 2 yrs. 3 mos. and newly born (July 18} Tucker Owen Long. Lindsay became an “adopted grandpa" to Nash Maverick Brown, since he was our 2 mission convert as a 16 year boy. This relationship still exists today, even though he remains living in Arkansas. Nash is now married and has a wife, Codee, daughter, Henlee Jo 2 yrs. and son Maverick Micah 6 mos. old.
Lindsay was born on October 12, 1938 in Bell (near Los Angeles), California. He was the first and only child of his parents (deceased). He was raised and schooled at various locations in southern California in a non-religious home, though he was taught moral principles by good and loving parents.
After high school graduation, Lindsay spent six years in the United States Navy (1956-1962), receiving an honorable discharge. He then received a bachelor’s degree in business administration, and later, a master’s degree in accounting. Lindsay's profession for the last 36 years has been spent in both public and private companies. The final twenty years he worked as a Church employee auditor, chief accountant, and an international controller.
Lindsay joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1970. Following his conversion, he never "looked back". The Gospel has always been the center of his life. He has lived in many wards and had many opportunities to serve in leadership and teaching capacities.
Lindsay is survived by his wife, Deanne Sorensen Johnson Miller; two sisters-in-laws Gail Sorensen Reed, and Janna (Alan) Sorensen Barnett; and many nieces and nephews.
Deanne wants to thank Lindsay’s doctors/staff and the Hospice team that took such caring service of her husband, Lindsay. She wants to thank her family and their friends and Bishop Jason Poulsen for their love and support at this time of Lindsay's passing.
