Obituary

William “Wink” Miller passed away on October 16, 2021, at Maury Regional Medical Center in Columbia.  He was born in Hohenwald, TN to the late Paul and Marie Churchwell Miller on February 9, 1961. Along with his parents he was preceded in death by his brother Gary Potts and an infant sister and paternal mother Martha Kilpatrick.

Wink was employed as an ambulance dispatcher and later went to work as a dispatcher for city hall. After retiring he went back to work and was a transport driver for Buffalo Valley here in Hohenwald.

Wink was truly one of a kind and there will never be another like him.  He was seen as a bit of a prankster. He would often greet you with a fun-loving smile and then his sharp whit would kick in.  There was always a smile on his face when he entered a room, and no one knew what would come next.  One thing for sure was he always made sure to say hello while making his rounds to see friends. In his spare time, he enjoyed watching ball games and settling in for a good western movie.

He is survived by his wife of 26 years Suzy Brown Miller; stepson Jeffery Brown; granddaughter Tessa Seymour brothers Dwayne Kilpatrick (Trina), Dale Crossno (Jan), Donald Tolbert, and Larry Potts; sisters Jane Tatum (Ernie), Darlene Coop, and Patricia Lay; and a host of nieces and nephews.

Visitation with family and friends will be held in the chapel of Adair Funeral & Cremation Services on Tuesday October 19, 2021, from 4:30-8:00 pm. Funeral services will be Wednesday October 20, 2021, at 11:00 am with brothers Bill Webb and Mark Webb officiating. Burial will follow at Santa Fe Cemetery in Columbia. Dwayne Kilpatrick, Larry Potts, Dale Crossno, Philip Frazier, Kevin Lay, Ernie Tatum, Donald Tolbert, and Joey Potts will serve as pallbearers.
