Obituary for Lavelle N. Miller

Lavelle N. Miller departed this life at the age of 68 on Friday, September 14, 2018, at Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. Lavelle was the first born to the late Dorothy and Norman W. Miller, Jr.
Lavelle was educated in the Pittsburgh public school system where he attended South Hills High School. Prior to his graduation in 1969, Lavelle was a premiere athlete and star running back at South Hills. Every Thanksgiving while growing up, Lavelle would always participate in the neighborhood “Turkey Bowl” football games. Even when he could no longer play, he went and showed his support as well as taught the youth that participated how to play the game. Lavelle was employed at the United States Steel Works in Duquesne, early in his career he held various positions throughout the state of Pennsylvania; eventually retiring from John J. Kane Regional Center after 15 years of service.
Lavelle was an excellent cook, enjoyed playing pool and hanging out with his buddies at the local spots. He also loved watching sports, particularly watching his favorite team, the Pittsburgh Steelers! Lavelle had a special relationship with his beautiful mother prior to her passing in 2006. He simply enjoyed spending time with his family and playing the role of big brother to his younger sister Birdina. Although Lavelle never had children of his own, he took great pride in helping to care for his nephew, Ronald Miller.
Lavelle was preceded in death by his loving parents, Dorothy and Norman Miller, Jr. He leaves to cherish his memory Gregory Miller of Long Beach, California; his devoted sister Birdina Miller of Upper Marlboro, Maryland; his nieces and nephews: Ronald, Gregory Jr., Celeste and Tiara; Favorite cousin, Clovia; and friends all of whom will miss him dearly.
