Longtime Worland Farmer Harold Miller, 94, passed away peacefully in his home on January 4, 2017.

Harold was born on May 9, 1922 in Basin, Wyoming.  He was the son of Pete and Marie Katherine (Thry) Miller.  He was raised on a farm north of Worland and spent all of his days as a Farmer.  Even as a young boy he farmed along with his family.

Harold met Grace Murdoch in Worland and they were married on February 5, 1956.  They lived and raised their family of six children on the farm on West River Road.  Many good times were spent together farming and growing as a family.  Harold taught his children to work hard on the farm and off the farm.  Harold always said anything worthwhile didn’t come easy.

He was an active supporter of his children and grandchildren and their activities.  He taught each of them how to work the ground and also how to feed livestock.  His sons continue to farm together and feed over 15,000 head of livestock for themselves and area ranchers. 

Harold was a member of the Zion Lutheran Church, served on the Big Horn Canal Board, and the Valley Coop Board.   

He was preceded in death by his loving wife, parents, brother’s Pete, David, John, Robert and sister Mary (Miller) Thomas.
