Robert Glenn (Bob) Miller (deceased). Bob died on December 8, 1988 of injuries resulting from an auto accident that occurred while returning from a visit with his brother in Austin. He was a veteran of the US Army and served a tour in Viet Nam, during which he experienced a shrapnel injury requiring hospitalization in Japan. He later served in Germany. Everyone will recall Bob as an excellent athlete in football during junior high and high school. Upon graduation he received a football scholarship from Louisiana College in Pineville. Mr. Howard Cheek drove Bob to Pineville and helped get him set up in the athletic dorm. However, after a few days he was homesick and decided to come back to Port Neches. A person could not ask for a better friend that Bob Miller. He is greatly missed by all who knew him. (Posted by Charlie Bryan on April 1, 2008)
