Robert Greg Miller
June 29, 2011
Greg Miller died unexpectedly Sunday, June 26. He was 59.
He was born July 14, 1951 in Bellefontaine, Ohio, one of three children of Robert D. Miller and R. Jane (Stahler) Miller, both deceased.
Greg graduated from Bellefontaine Senior High School in 1969 and from Ohio State University in 1973, with a bachelor’s degree in business. He was employed for many years with the Wendy’s Corp. and the G.D. Ritzy Co. in Columbus, Ohio, prior to moving to Aspen in the fall of 1989 to join his parents in operating their successful business, Aspen Blinds. The company specialized in providing customized remote-controlled window treatments for homes and businesses in and around Aspen. Under Greg’s leadership, Aspen Blinds won multiple top-producer awards.
Greg was well known in the Aspen community for his charity work and as an excellent skier and ski racer. He was a member of the Aspen Mountain Club and a member and supporter of the Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club, which provides youth in the Roaring Fork Valley with the opportunity to develop as winter sports athletes.
Greg always said that when he moved to Aspen, it was like “already being in heaven!” He could oftentimes be seen apres ski, holding court with his bevy of local friends and business clients. His presence will be sorely missed on Aspen Mountain.
Survivors include his two sisters, Kristen (Larry) Moreland of Green Bay, Wis., and
