Kirk Miller

Kirk Miller

Kirk Miller, 65, of Lenexa, Kansas, passed away January 18, 2020.  Kirk grew up in Merriam, KS, and graduated from St. Joseph High School. He owned and operated Miller Overhead Door for over 35 years.  Kirk was an avid sports enthusiast, playing baseball and softball most of his life. He was a member of the 2007 ISA World Championship Slowpitch Softball Team.  In 2019 Kirk was inducted into the Midwest Slowpitch Hall of Fame. Kirk was a member of the Knights of Columbus in Shawnee, Kansas.  

Kirk is survived by his mother, Billie Jean (Renner) and stepfather, Butch Mowry; “older sister” Vickie (Miller) and husband, John Wright; “younger sister” Gail (Miller) and husband, Neal Clute; and his uncle, Bob Renner.  Kirk was fond of his four nieces; Stacy Carey, Lori Karst, Jessica Schroeder, and Kara Shively. He was excited to have future ball players in his six grand-nephews. Kirk leaves behind his significant other, Jan Underwood; and his beloved dog, O.D.O., who was always at his side.  

The family wishes to express their appreciation to Kirk’s many close friends, especially Lance, Billy, Dickie, Toby and fellow Knights of Columbus Members for assisting us with his arrangements.  

Service

There will be a celebration of Kirk’s life on Saturday, January 25th, at the Knights of Columbus Hall of Shawnee, Kansas.  A rosary will be held at 3:00, followed by a reception/dinner for Kirk’s friends and family. In honor of celebrating Kirk’s favorite NFL team going to the Super Bowl, please wear Chiefs RED! We look forward to sharing memories and stories of Kirk.

    Kirk was our neighbor and dedicated Girl Scout Cookie buyer and elementary school sponsor for our daughters. He will be remembered by his daily and nightly walks of O.D.O

    Kirk would give our family a Subway gift card at Christmas, which we would use on our summer vacation. This year will be a special remembrance of Kirk!

    Kurt was our neighbor and dedicated Girl Scout Cookie buyer and elementary school sponsor for our daughters. He will be remembered in the neighborhood as walking O.D.O every day and night!

    Kurt started giving our family a Subway gift card for Christmas which we would save for our summer family vacation. This year will be a special remembrance when we use the gift card.
