Clinton Ray Miller passed from this life with the love of his family on July 24, 2013. Clinton will be remembered for his powerful influence of truth, and his unyielding commitment to family, church, and health freedom. He joined the throngs of great pioneers on Pioneer Day.
Born on March 14, 1922 in Preston, Idaho, to Raymond Nephi and Clarice Stockdale Miller.
Clinton grew up working in the family business, the Miller Honey Company. Diligent hard work and perseverance were his trademarks. He graduated from East High and the University of Utah.

During World War II, Clinton served as a Pilot of a B-17 Bomber. He worked as an English Teacher and Top Sales Rep for Utah Woolen Mills in Alaska. He founded Clinton’s Wheat Shop, and represented the National Health Federation as legislative advocate, defending our health freedoms from 1962 through 1990. His work in this field was pivotal and enduring. He labored in this cause through his 90th year. Above all, Clinton was dedicated to his wife and family. A faithful Latter-Day Saint, Clinton served in many leadership positions and shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone he met. He devoted the last three years of his life to full-time family temple work in the St. George Temple.
