Justin Paul Miller

STREAMWOOD, Ill., – Justin Paul Miller, 20, of Streamwood, Ill., died April 3, 2013, after fighting a long and courageous five-year battle with cancer.

He was born April 21, 1992, to Stephan and Peggy Miller. He attended Streamwood High School and graduated in 2010, where he was actively involved in the marching band and drum line.

In the years following his graduation, Justin remained an active part of the school band, volunteering his time to assist with concerts, theatre productions, and drum line camp. At his church, he was an integral part of the Ember Days praise band, Voices of Light ensemble, and the Young Adult Praise Band. He was passionately pursuing an anthropology degree from Elgin Community College.

Justin leaves behind his parents, Stephan and Peggy; sister, Lindsey; and twin brother, Jeremy. He also leaves his paternal grandparents, Richard and Betty Miller, and maternal grandparents, Joe and Sharon Pollard. He will be greatly missed by his many aunts, uncles, and cousins, for whom sitting around a bonfire will never be the same.

A memorial service will be held today at 6:33 p.m. (Matthew 6:33) at Our Redeemer’s United Methodist Church, 1600 West Schaumburg Road, Schaumburg, Ill., with a time of gathering at 5:30 p.m.
