Bryan was the loving husband of Esther (Munoz) Miller for 30 years. He was a passionate mechanic who loved anything with a motor, there was nothing he couldn’t fix. He grew to love cooking and was known for his meatballs and hot dog relish. Bryan always had a story to tell and quickly befriended anyone who would lend an ear.  He was a friend to all and will be missed by many.

Along with his wife Esther, Bryan is survived by his son Robert Miller and his wife Cali Miller of Putnam; daughter Stephanie Miller, her fiancé Christopher Daigle and granddaughter Addison Daigle of Bristol.  Bryan will be missed by his sister Nancy Silva of Middletown; brother Robert Miller and his partner Jaime Timoteo of FL; sister Pamela Campbell and her husband Craig Campbell of Burlington; brother David Miller and his wife Sandra Miller of Burlington; brother-in-law Rafael Munoz and his wife Christine Munoz of Manchester; nieces, nephews and many friends.
