Andrew Paul Miller, M.D., 91, died Oct. 15, 2009 shortly after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

Dr. Miller grew up in Pittsburgh, Pa. and graduated from Grove City College and the University of Pennsylvania Medical School. During WW II, Dr. Miller was a medical officer in the U.S Navy, serving on a medical evacuation ship supporting the Normandy and Southern France invasions and, following the signing of a treaty with Japan, on an escort carrier in the Pacific.

After a five-year surgical practice in Palo Alto, he shifted to pathology, serving at El Camino Hospital in Mountain View and Kaiser Foundation Hospital in Santa Clara, from where he retired in 1989. He also taught pathology at Stanford Medical School. In 1975, Dr. Miller was president of the South Bay Pathological Society,

Dr. Miller was a devoted leader in the Boy Scouts and was physician at Camp Oljato in the Sierras. He shared with his family a deep romance with the green places and mountains of California, and was enthralled with the wonders of Yosemite National Park. In retirement, Dr. Miller was very active in the Midpeninsula Chapter of the United Nations Association, serving as chapter president and longtime editor and columnist for its newsletter. For several years, he created voice recordings of medical material for the Northern California Unit of the Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic.

Dr. Miller was preceded in death by his wife, Edith (Mueser) Miller and a son, Eric. He is survived by sons and daughters-in-law Brian (Bev); Glenn (Mary) and Lysle (Richelle) and seven grandchildren.

A celebration of his life will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 14 at the Sequoias retirement community, 501 Portola Rd., Portola Valley.
