Chuck is also survived by his two grandchildren, Mason Lewis and Rosemary Lewis of Salisbury, Maryland. He was fortunate to have beloved nieces and nephews also; Sara Patrick of Ocean City, Maryland and her daughters Logan and Sydney Patrick; Kathryn Brummitt and husband James of Purceville, Virginia and their daughters Abby and Becca Brummitt; Joseph (Joby) Miller of New Smyrna Beach, Florida and Josh and Jenna Miller of Ocean Pines, Maryland.

Chuck was born on July 17, 1951 in Baltimore, Maryland and was the son of the late Charles Edward Miller II and Ruth (Johancen) Miller Gilfillan.  Chuck and his family moved to Ocean City in 1960 and lived and worked as an offshore fisherman there until his move to Florida in the mid-70’s.  He lived in Islamorada, Fort Lauderdale, and New Smyrna Beach; or wherever the fishing took him.

As one of his many “brothers” said after his passing, “the offshore fishing community lost one of the best, Captain Chuck Miller.”  His “brothers” are too numerous to mention here, but the family would like to acknowledge their love and support and presence in his life over the years.  He was certainly loved and was a mentor to many young fishermen beginning their journey.  He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

“Perhaps I should not have been a fisherman, he thought.  But that was the thing that I was born for.”

A Celebration of life will be conducted later, COVID permitting, with a Mass and memorial gathering.  In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory can be made to Coastal Hospice of the Eastern Shore or St. Mary’s Star of the Sea parish in Ocean City, Maryland. Condolences may be sent by visiting
