Kevin Miller

September 18, 1971 - January 15, 2023

Kevin Miller

It is with great sorrow, we announce the unexpected passing of Kevin Alan Miller, 51, of Savannah on January 15, 2023. He was born in Statesboro on September 18, 1971 to Rex Miller, Jr. and Diane Brannen Miller. This particular year his Daddy received the best birthday present anyone could ever receive, a son. He was a 1989 honor graduate of Claxton High School. Following high school, Kevin attended Georgia Tech and obtained his Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering. During his time at Georgia Tech, he co-oped with Savannah Electric. After graduation, Kevin became a Professional Engineer for Electrical Equipment Upgrading (EEU) in Savannah and has been employed with them until his death. Kevin was a hard worker, a great husband, a great family member, and a wonderful friend. He was affectionately known by his friends as "Country." He was the happiest when he was spending time on their dock with family and friends. Kevin loved to fish, crab, boat, and watch sunrises over the water. He shared the same passion for the water as his mother. 

Kevin is preceded in death by his mother, Diane Miller, his brother-in-law, Alan McNeese, and uncle, Bruce Miller. 

He is survived by his wife, Betsy West of Savannah; step-son, Tripp West (Jill) of Atlanta; step granddaughters, Keely and and Emma West of Atlanta; parents, Rex and Kathy Miller of Statesboro; grandmother, Grace Miller of Dublin; sister, Karen Miller McNeese of Claxton; nephews Kalan McNeese (Seraphina Morrison) of Pooler and Taylor Coley of Lawrenceville; niece Karla McNeese of Claxton; sister-in-law Susan Hill (Robbie) of Savannah; brother-in-law Miller Cook (Maureen) of St. Cloud, FL; uncle Joe Brannen (Vilda) of Atlanta; aunts Sandy Brannen Herrin (Raymond) of Claxton, Gracielle Miller Mason (Korre) of Statesboro, and Pat Miller of Fayetteville and several other family members.


Visitation will be held at Islands Chaple from 5 - 7 on Thursday, January 19. Graveside service and interment will be held Friday, January 20 at 11 a.m. at Brewton Cemetery in Claxton with Dr. Matt Brady officiating. Pallbearers are Bryan Carbo, Mark Carbo, Tim Joyner, Mark McNeill, Timmy Ryan, and Dave Schambach. Honorary pallbearers are EEU employees.
