David E. Miller, 100, was granted his desire to pass from this life to Heaven’s glory on Monday morning, May 10, 2021 at Landis Homes in Lititz. Born in West Donegal Twp., he was the son of the late Arthur K. Miller, Sr., and Katie W. Ebersole Miller. He was the loving husband of Stella E.

David was a member of the Erb Mennonite Church in Lititz. Earlier in his life, he was a member and deacon at West Green Tree Church of the Brethren in Elizabethtown. In both churches, he served as a Sunday school teacher and a song leader. Sacred music was an important part of David’s life. In addition to playing instruments, he sang in quartets, choruses, and various other groups.
For more than 30 years, David was an exceptional dairy farmer in the Mount Joy area. After leaving farming, he was employed by the Bomberger Store in Elm. When moving to Landis Homes, he became a very dedicated volunteer. He also enjoyed hunting, including hunting trips to the western U.S.
