Until he retired, Dave was a centerless grinder for about 35 years, with the last half of that time being in the aircraft hardware industry. Dave enjoyed watching football, baseball and baseketball, but he especially liked watching Nascar racing. His favorite TV past-time was watching the news. Dave could often be found at Rec Park watching his son, Brandon, playing baseball or soccer. Folks around town frequently saw him out walking the dog, Mystic, who had become his daily companion. Dave is survived by his wife, Carol, to whom he had been married for almost 18 years and his son Brandon, who was his pride and joy. He is also survived by his step-daughter, Jenni Miller, four children from a previous marriage, Linda, Sherry, David and Cindy, his brothers Hendry, Ted and Denny and his sister Jean Dahl. A memorial service will be held Saturday, August 21 at 3:00 p.m. at White & Day Mortuary, 3215 Sepulveda Blvd., Manhattan Beach, CA 90266. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Brandon Miller Education Fund c/o Joan Hobbs 1237 E. Oak Ave., El Segundo, CA 90245

  1. Brandon, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your mother. I will miss seeing you and your dad working so hard at the house almost every time I passed by. I never drove by without thinking how close you two seemed.
