Monroe Albert Miller, Jr. passed away on January 30, 2024, at his residence. He was born on September 18, 1947 in Long Branch, NJ. Monroe was the son of Monroe A. Miller, Sr. and Margaret Keneally Miller.
Monroe had a notable career in the field of electrical engineering. He worked at Motorola and Bendix Avionics before venturing out on his own. In 1986, Monroe founded Monicor Electronic Corporation, which became his entrepreneurial endeavor and a testament to his expertise and passion for electronics. Education played a pivotal role in Monroe's life. He obtained a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Florida, enriching his knowledge and equipping him for a successful career.
Beyond his professional achievements, Monroe had many hobbies and interests that brought him joy and fulfillment. One of his passions was being a pilot, exploring the skies with a sense of adventure. A thrill-seeker at heart, he also enjoyed skydiving and embraced the exhilarating experience it provided. Monroe possessed an innate talent for all things electronic. He was renowned as the local electronic specialist and would generously lend his expertise to help fix and repair electronic devices within his neighborhood. His willingness to assist others showcased not only his technical prowess but also his kind-hearted nature.
Monroe Miller was a true patriot and formed the very first group of true conservatives to vet political candidate’s values when they signed up to run for office. He questioned how the candidate would govern and what were their plans for the county and citizens he loved. He was one of a kind and we will never have another watchdog and protector like our Monroe Miller.
Monroe is preceded in death by his parents, Monroe A. Miller, Sr. and Margaret Keneally Miller and his loving son, Monroe A. Miller.
Monroe is survived by one daughter, Annette Miller; two grandchildren, Katherine Lynn Conger and Sean Monroe Conger; a sister, Linda Miller Overcash; and a brother, Robert Allen Miller.
A private service will be held at a later date.
The care of Mr. Miller has been entrusted to Wells Funeral Home of Waynesville.
