A great friend and boss ! I met Dick in Germany and then ended up with him at PSU in November 1990. He was sitting at a cube. Sarcastically, he pointed to the floor and said, "...Ed, I'm a W4 and this is my office !!..." Being ever the resourceful agent, he had placed duct tape in a rectangle, forming a perimeter around his "office".
I could not resist and asked, "...Dick, where's the door..?" RIP my friend! Probst !!

Dietzel Morris MILLER
(1946 - 2017)

Dietzel “Dick” Morris Miller, 71, of Sun City Center, Florida passed away at home on Tuesday, October 31, 2017. He was born on October 25, 1946 in Vincennes, Indiana to Albert C. and Mary W (Knight) Miller and raised in Bicknell and Terre Haute Indiana.

Dick graduated from Gerstmeyer High School in Terre Haute in 1964. He joined the U.S. Army in 1965 and served as an admin specialist, Military Police, Criminal Investigation Division (CID) agent (investigating felony level crime) and Protective Services on the Secretary of Defense (Dick Cheney) detail. During these 28 years, he attended ISU at Terre Haute to get a degree in Criminology. He served in many U.S. Army Bases both in the United States and overseas including Vietnam, Korea, Germany and Italy. Additionally, he traveled with the United States Secretary of Defense to many other countries around the world. After retirement in 1993, he joined various corporate and government security agencies and retired from the FBI as a consultant security analyst in 2011 when he left the Washington, DC area to become a Florida resident.

Dick met Elda Guajardo in Schweinfurt, Germany in 1980, became engaged in Paris, France and married in Basel, Switzerland on April 20, 1982. They resided in Germany from 1980-1989. He was reassigned to Ft. Belvoir, Virginia, retired in 1993 and then again in 2011 to move to Florida and get away from the bad winter storms. He enjoyed biking, swimming and writing his book, Army Detective by Dick Miller (currently at publisher).

He is survived by his wife, Elda Guajardo Miller; his son, Chris D. Miller (Nichole Jones); granddaughters, Sydney Marie Miller and Lauryn Raye Miller. Also surviving are two sisters, Rachel Miller Groves (Edward) and June Miller Harlan (Fred), many nieces, nephews and cousins whom he visited yearly at the Miller Family Reunion.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Albert Clarence and Mary W. Knight Miller, brothers John Miller, and Roy J. Miller and sisters, Nora Mae Miller McAtee (Hubert) and Inez Ruth Miller.

A Celebration of life is planned for Saturday, November 4, 2017 from 2-4 pm at National Cremation and Burial Society, 308 E. College Avenue, Ruskin, Florida. 33573. Per Dick’s wishes he will be interred at Arlington Cemetery in Washington D.C. Arrangements and details for this celebration will follow at a later date to meet their extremely busy schedule.

Very saddened to hear of Dick's passing. My earliest recollection of him is drinking beers at Italo's Italian Restaurant located about 150 yards from the Schweinfurt RA. In total we worked together in 3 different occasions - Schweinfurt in the early 80s; PSU in the mid 90s; and finally a stint a DynCorp/CSC in the early 2000s. He was a dependable colleague and friend. My sympathy and prayers to Elda and his entire family. I'll attend his internment at Arlington

John Pageau text me yesterday, wanting to know ifI had heard of Dick Miller's passing. I have not. Pat, who made this posting? John and I worked at Dyn Corp, with Dick Miller several years ago. Gold Book shows Florida address but Virginia area code telephone #'s.

This was posted on the CIDAA Facebook Page yesterday. "Wanted to let everyone who knew Dietzel (Dick) Miller that he passed away this morning. Once I get additional information I will provide an update. RIP Dick." Has anyone heard of memorial services for Dick? He and I would have breakfast on occasion when he was in Sun City Center.
