OBITUARY: William ‘Billy’ Miller


William “Billy” Miller passed away unexpectedly on Friday, March 29, 2024 at the age of 39 in his Columbia, TN residence.

Known to most by “Billy” and several by “Bill”, he was a son, a brother, a dad, a friend, a true love, a wood worker, a salesman and a good guy. He was a graduate of Columbia Central High School with the best group of friends.

His proudest accomplishment in life was his daughter, Odessa. She brought purpose, love and so much joy to his life. He was never without 4-5 bandanas and his dog, Moose, by his side. He loved a good conspiracy theory or any topic deemed controversial. He enjoyed fishing, card games, corn hole, the Outer Banks, Mule Day and did I mention, bandanas.

He was described as smart, funny, and magnetic. He loved a good story, neon colors, horror films, Gain scent, ranch dressing, Q-tips, tennis shoes, shop tools and making funny faces when taking pictures. He had a big heart.

He is survived by his mother, Karen Albertson Miller; father, Bill Miller; sisters, Blair Miller and Madison Miller; daughter, Odessa Miller and her mother, Alex Brown; dog, Moose; aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Preceded in death by his grandparents, Bill and Nancy Miller as well as Gene and Patsy Albertson.

Billy was never one for life’s theatrics, doing something because he had to or anything he didn’t want to do. He would not have attended his own funeral.

In lieu of a funeral, a celebration of life party will be held in the upcoming months once the family has had time to process this unexpected tragedy.
