He was a proud member of the Cleveland Browns “Dawg Pound” and an avid fisherman. In his free time he could be found attending his grandchildren’s, niece’s and nephew’s sporting events or spending time with his puppy, Smokey.

His life long passion was being a devoted father to his three children, Stephanie (Joshua) Giuriceo of Youngstown, Ohio, Donald E Miller, Jr. of Farrell, Pennsylvania and Jasmine (Kavahnn Serrette)Miller of Laurel, Maryland. His greatest joy was his grandchildren, Jaida, Joshua, Jr., Melanie, Nova and Nirvana, as well as his nieces, Dominique, DeVaron and De’Erika, which he reared.

Poochie will be greatly missed by his sister, Monica (Anthony) Scott of Farrell, Pennsylvania and brother, Marco Miller of Hermitage, Pennsylvania; a host of cousins, nieces, nephews and other family members and friends, including a sister-in-law, Sara.

Poochie had the biggest heart, even at the end he chose to give ultimate gift of life, through organ donation.

The family will receive friends Saturday, November 12 from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. at the church and at the home of Monica Scott, 1116 Washington Street in Farrell, Pennsylvania.
