Aidan Daniel Miller, age 16, died unexpectedly of natural causes near his home in rural Kellogg,
Minnesota, on Monday, July 22, 2019.
Aidan was born on October 9, 2002 at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Wabasha to Daniel and Karen
(Deming) Miller. He was one of six children in the Miller family. Aidan was baptized in October of
2002 at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church and was confirmed this past May at St. Joachim’
s Catholic Church. He held his Catholic faith as a priority in his life, helping out with Vacation
Bible School this year, and serving Mass for many years.
Aiden was an excellent student at Plainview-Elgin-Millville Schools and was just about to begin
his junior year in high school. He was a great athlete, wrestling through his freshman year and
looking forward to this year’s football season as a lineman for PEM. He was a member of the
FFA, the National Honor Society, Bulldog Ambassadors, PEM Trap Shooters Club, the PEM
Student Council, and Immaculate Conception Church. He was an avid Twins and Viking fan and
could accurately sing every word of every country song he listened to. If you didn’t see him
mowing lawn in his straw hat, or doing chores on the farm you would find him checking trail
cams, trapping gophers or hunting for mushrooms. Aidan was an avid hunter and fisherman and
was on an afternoon outing (at one of his favorite spots) with his best friends when God called
Aidan will be sadly missed by his parents, Dan and Karen Miller of Kellogg; his brothers Blaine
(Hannah) Miller, and Garrett (Alicia) Miller; and his sisters Mary Kate Miller, Ellie Miller and Avalin
Miller, all of Kellogg. He is further survived by his maternal grandparents, John and Alice Deming
of Plainview, along with many aunts, uncles, cousins, and countless friends who loved him.
Aidan was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Harold and Rose Mary Miller, and
one cousin, Holli Blattner in 2005.
