Dwight Elton Miller was born on April 23, 1955 to the late Carrie Ann Miller Tanner and Nelvin Miller. He graduated from Cass High School in 1973 excelling at basketball and track. While in high school he worked part-time for Carl Wilkins Janitorial Services cementing his work ethnic as a hard, reliable worker. This hard work paid off when he obtained a job at Union Carbide as a machinist for 10 years. Dwight went on to complete training at a trade school at Lockheed Martin and was hired. He worked as an airplane technician assembling Boeing Jet 747's and reading airplane blueprints. Later he obtained a job at Shaw Industries, where he retired.

One of Dwight's favorite past times was singing. He sang in the choir at Pine Grove Independent Church and later served on the Deacon Board. In his later years he became a member of the Bread of Life Free Church under the leadership of Pastor Jerry Jude.

Dwight was a kind and gentle soul to everyone he knew or met. He always could bring people together through his love of singing and love of cooking for his family and friends. He prided himself on his firing up the grill to feed whomever. Dwight always had a plate ready for someone that may stop by, but as always Ezella knew he had already called them.

Dwight, affectionately known as Tate, Big Tate, Big D and Pawpaw, leaves to cherish his memories, a loving wife of 36 years, Ezella Miller; three daughters, Rosenda Jewell, Jorie Jewell, and Heather Miller; two grandchildren, Megan Lewis, and Sydney Lewis; sister, Deborah Spencer (Burnise); four brothers, Barney Miller (Faye), Ray Gay (Sandra), Gary Gay, and Rodney Miller; special friend, Charles Allen- who affectionately called him Big Brother; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, loved ones and friends.
