Michael Tyrell  Miller

Michael Tyrell Miller, 64, of Byron, passed away Friday, Nov. 22, 2019, at his home with his wife by his side.

Mike was born July 22, 1955, in New Ulm, Minn. His family then moved to Rochester, and eventually to Byron, where he graduated from Byron High School in 1973.

He married Lori A. Lienau-Johnson on March 31, 1989, at St. John's Lutheran Church in Kasson and they made their home in Byron, where they raised their two sons.

Mike worked in the construction/masonry field in his younger days, did some farming, then took a position in the laser shop at RDM in Dodge Center for many years, until taking a position at Mayo Clinic as a custodian.

Mike loved to go fishing, camping, going to classic car shows and riding his Harley on long trips to Sturgis, S.D., Yellowstone National Park, and taking the best trip ever to Alaska, along with spending lots of time with his granddaughters.

He is survived by his wife, Lori; two sons, Owen (Briana Turner) of Rochester and Tyler of Byron; four granddaughters who adored their "Papa," Londyn Miller and Jayden, Jordan and Jemma Johnson; brothers-in-law, Robert Lienau and Randy (Danielle) Lienau; parents, Anker and LaVonne Miller of Kasson; one brother, Gregg (Cecilia) Miller of Kasson; several nieces and nephews; and a great-niece and great-nephew.

He was preceded in death by his sister, Cheryl, and paternal and maternal grandparents.

The memorial service will be at 11 a.m.  Saturday, Dec. 7, 2019 in the River Park Chapel at Macken Funeral Home in Rochester with Pastor Kurt Ploeger officiating. Visitation will be from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6, in the River Park Chapel at Macken Funeral Home and one hour prior to the service on Saturday.
