Phillip Dale Miller, 57, of Odessa MO., passed away Saturday, September 9, 2023. He was born August 14, 1966, to parents Orville and Geneva Miller, both who preceded his death. On August 10, 1985, he was united in marriage to Julie Polacek.
Surviving is his wife, Julie, daughters Lacey Beissenherz and husband Brock of Odessa, MO., and Audrey Miller also of Odessa. 2 granddaughters Brynlee and Adley Beissenherz. Siblings Steve Miller of KC MO, Dennis Miller of N. Richland Hills, TX., Debbie Scanlon and Dan of Buckner, MO., and multiple nieces and nephews.
Phillip and Julie moved from Independence to Mayview in 1989 and then to Odessa in 2013. He was an over the road truck driver; what he wanted to be since a child. He enjoyed riding motorcycles, tinkering with his ‘64 Chevelle, and being with his family and friends when he was home. And if you knew him, you knew he loved his spam and old country music. The greatest joy to him was his granddaughters who he adored and loved sharing his candy with. He will be greatly missed.
