John A. Miller, age 91, of Cannon Falls, died Tuesday, November 2, 2021.
John Arden Miller was born on May 12, 1930 in Cannon Falls, the son of Jennings and Esther (Larson) Miller. He attended country school and then went to work on the family farm, raising beef cattle, crops and dairy cattle. He was proud to be a third-generation farmer on Oak Lawn Farm, a Minnesota Century farm.
On December 9, 1961, John was married to Elaine Koosmann in Appleton, MN. John was a life-long member of Spring Garden Lutheran Church.
In addition to farming, John served his community as a Supervisor on the Leon Township Board for 32 years, and on the Stanton Township Board for six years. He was an avid bowler winning many trophies for his Dew Drop Inn, Lundell Mobil and Hernke’s Inc. teams. But his greatest joy was his twin sons and triplet daughters.
