Obituary

Bruce Miller, 63, of Doylestown, passed away on December 27, 2019, following a difficult illness.

He is survived by a son, Bruce Miller, Jr, and family, of Iowa.

Bruce was truly a unique man. As he described it, he lived “in the rough”, in lower and central Bucks County, for the past 30 years. During his life Bruce worked for several waste management companies as well as a local car wash. More recently, he was often found either at Starbucks or Panera in Doylestown.

Over these years, Bruce has become known for his yellow bike and most recently a wheelchair. People at his typical haunts describe Bruce as a kind, gentle man, always willing to share a smile or talk baseball with others. Many people around Doylestown would provide him with gift cards and other gifts to help him be comfortable. Bruce was amazed that people would be so kind to him and was always appreciative. This is his legacy: a good man who was humble, kind, sincere, grateful for the little things in life, and loved by many.

A service of remembrance will be held at the Doylestown United Methodist Church, 320 East Swamp Road, Doylestown PA 18901 on Friday, January 10, 2019 at 6:00 pm. A memorial gathering will be held from 5:00-6:00 pm prior to the service at church.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to The Coalition to Shelter and Support the Homeless (CSSH)/Code Blue https://co2ssh.org/donate a dedicated organization that supported Bruce for many years.

Mike Raines - Thoughts of Bruce Miller, a true blessing in many lives

I had been looking for him for several months without knowing why. He was given to me in prayer one night. I did not have his name. Only a visual in my mind similar to that of an old friend that you haven’t seen in a while. Only there was no name or place.
I am very thankful to Bruce. As I was on the look out for him, I met some very interesting and needy brothers. One in particular, was in the process of contemplating a robbery. I will never forget his response when I walked up to him and asked how he was doing? He gave me the deer in the headlights stare and said “where did you come from”? Bruce didn’t know it but he changed the direction of this man’s life.
There were several others that Bruce led me to and others that I led Bruce to. All resulted in life changing moments. All starting with Bruce.
I found Bruce one Saturday standing in the parking lot at Swamp and Ferry Roads. I knew that my search for the one given to me was done. I gave him a ride that day… to Starbucks of course. He now had my phone number and my commitment to help him in what every way that he needed but most specially to help him find a way to get off of the street.
I kept tabs on Bruce. But at a distance so as not to compromise the freedom that he received from living on the street. He told me one time that “this freedom is one that nobody can take away from me”.
What did Bruce like? He liked his coffee with cream and extra sugar. He liked meat ball subs from WAWA. Roast beef hoagies from Giant. Frozen peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Drinking milk by the quart. Vanilla ice cream by the pint. Shopping at the dollar store. And not to mention his Tabaco, which had to come from Q mart.
What does Bruce teach us? God wants us to love all of our brothers and sisters. But most important, He wants us to love them where they are and not where we think that they should be. Where they are is where God has placed them to do His work.
Rest in peace my brother. Thank you for all that you have given us.
