Obituary for Frederick Peter Miller

Frederick Peter Miller
May 8, 1931 - Feb. 9, 2018.

Born May 8, 1931 in Elizabeth, NJ, Frederick Peter Miller is the second child of first generation Germans, Fred and Elizabeth Moeller.

Fred was baptized in Linden, NJ by an inner-city ministry where he also met his wife, Charlotte. Fred and Charlotte married and, after obtaining his high school diploma, moved to Lincoln, Illinois, where he began an academic career that ultimately earned him several undergraduate and graduate degrees. Fred entered Lincoln Christian College, Lincoln, Illinois before completing his degrees at Midwestern School of Evangelism in Ottumwa, Iowa.

Fred was a scholar of ancient Greek and Hebrew with modest fluency in modern Hebrew and Spanish. He has authored several books and, with his deep knowledge of ancient biblical languages, he translated the Old and New Testaments directly from the original using the King James Version as a starting point. One of his greatest scholastic achievements is the interlinear transliteration of the entire scanned collection of the Dead Sea (Qumran) scrolls. He established the School of the Ministry in Rutland, Vermont, and facilitated credits to be accepted by the local Catholic college and Yale University.

Fred developed broad practical skills in carpentry, plumbing, electricity, landscaping and horticulture. A gifted amateur of communication technology, he developed mass mailing programs with mechanical technology, adapting to the personal computer revolution as it appeared in the 70s in support of the ministry.

Fred was a preacher and teacher at many churches since his conversion, and was often invited to speak at events and conferences all over the world. The Millers have close affiliation with local Carrollton churches, including First Christian Church where they have been longtime members, while actively supporting other local congregations like Cross Plains Christian Church, and most recently Kings Street Christian Church where Fred regularly preached up until age and illness no longer permitted him to.

In 1957, Fred and Charlotte moved to New England where they felt called to plant churches in that area. They were blessed with six children while several churches were planted by Fred and others who had joined him in the ministry.

In 1978, Fred, his wife and four of his children emigrated to the United Kingdom where they spent 10 years planting churches and raising their children before returning and settling in Florida in 1989.

Fred is survived by his wife, Charlotte, and his six children, Cass, Van, Ken, George, Fritz, and Celia.

Funeral service will be held Friday, February 16, 2018 at 2 p.m. at the First Christian Church. The family will receive friends Friday at the church from noon until the funeral. Interment will be in Cross Plains Christian Church Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, Charlotte and her family have asked that donations be made in Fred's honor to the building fund of Streatham Church of Christ, a church dad planted nearly 30 years ago in London, England and whose congregation was near and dear to his heart.
