Dale LeRoy Miller, of Mora, passed away on Sunday, February 5, 2017 at the St. Cloud Veteran’s Hospital. He was 74 years old.
Dale was born on May 19, 1942 in Beaver Township, Polk County, Wisconsin to parents Neil and Audrey (Maas) Miller. He grew up in St. Paul, graduating from Washington High School in 1960. Dale enlisted in the US Army and served overseas in Korea. During his 4th year of service, Dale was in an accident and given a medical retirement in 1964.
On November 26, 1964, Dale was united in marriage to Dianne Lavander in St. Paul. Dale began a 25 year career as a draftsman working for several different companies around the twin cities over the years. In the early 1970’s Dale moved his family to Cambridge where they lived until 1976 when they moved to the Mora area. Dale and Dianne owned and operated Miller’s Resort on Knife Lake for the next 10 years. After selling the resort, Dale worked for Kanabec County for a few years doing odd jobs around Mora until his health forced him to retire fully.
