Sep 22, 1946 - Feb 20, 2023
Daniel was born on September 22, 1946, son of Harvey J. and Anna E. (Bair) Miller in Tiffin, Ohio. He grew up living near the Sandusky River where he developed a love of fishing. The family spent their summers in their cottage on Lake Erie boating and swimming. Daniel graduated from Calvert High School.
On June 24, 1967, Daniel married Julie Kleinhenz in Tiffin, Ohio. They had two daughters together but later divorced. While living in Ohio, Dan worked as a cabinetry designer. He learned how to pilot an airplane, making it easier to get to different job locations. In 1976, the family moved to Thermopolis, Wyoming in order to fulfill Dan’s lifelong dream of becoming a cowboy. He enjoyed working as an outfitter, packing many people into backcountry camps on horses where they could also enjoy hunting and fishing. During the 1980’s Dan relished the life of a mountain man. He and the family attended rendezvous throughout Wyoming while Dan kept busy throwing tomahawks, tanning leather, making Buffalo hide slippers, necklaces, powder horns and even made a custom leather Indian dress for his daughter, Chris. In 1992, Dan and his most cherished companion, his dog Cody, moved to Oregon to breed and train thoroughbreds where he met his soulmate, Cheryl. In 2010, he moved back to the place he loved most, Wyoming, where he remained for the rest of his days. Daniel owned and operated Artisan Leather, where his imagination flowed creating custom leather frames, Bible covers, key chains, pistol holders and many other designs. His talent also shined through in his custom fly rods and flies that he tied. Dan was in his element when he was hunting, fishing or riding horses. Another gift that Dan had was drawing up Architectural Designs.
Survivors include his daughters, Jennifer and her husband Wade Werbelow of Riverton, Wyoming and Christine and Edwin Marceline of Troy, New York; grandchildren, Randi Campbell, Shepperd and his wife, Elaina Campbell and Dante Marceline; great granddaughter, Aaleigha Campbell.
Mr. Miller was preceded in death by his parents; soul mate, Cheryl; sister Patricia Eisenhart and most recently, his beautiful granddaughter, Danielle Marceline.
