Miller received his Ph.D. degree in philosophy from Michigan State University. A prolific writer and publisher, he published his first article in the prestigious journal of the Royal Institute of Philosophy as a graduate student. He continued publishing for many years in other prestigious journals such as "Mind." In his later years, he published pieces on moral issues in "Free Inquiry" and "Secular Nation."
He enjoyed teaching and upheld the intellectual welfare of his students. Ron was a researcher and aficionado of the writing and music of Woody Guthrie, and an ardent fan of rural, black blues and Bob Dylan. He loved traveling, especially to New York City.
Miller was born Jan. 27, 1949, to the late Arthur R. Miller and Nannette Corcoran Miller, in Wheeling, W.Va. He is survived by his wife of thirty-five years, Candi Miller and his two daughters, Carol Miller-Jenkins and Beverly Miller.
