Oscar Miller of Orlando, passed away on Saturday, Feb. 28, 2015, at his residence. He was 83 years old. Mr. Miller was born to the late Israel and Fannie Lichtman on Nov. 29, 1931, in Bronx, New York. He enlisted in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Germany.

On Sept. 7, 1957, in New York, he married the former Sheila Posner, his wife of over 57 years who survives him. Mr. Miller was a natural salesman, working in his family’s leather business but ultimately striking out on his own. He became quite a successful salesman in the retail clothing business—the occupation from which he ultimately retired. In 1979, the family relocated to the Orlando area.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his sons, Jeffrey (Diane) of Knoxville, Tenn.; and Marc (Tyna) of Decatur, Ala.; his daughters, Ilene (Michael) Reiter and Renee (Robin) Shoner of Palm Coast; nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
