Robert E. Miller, age 62, a lifelong resident of Delaware County, Muncie, Ind., died recently at his residence following an illness of several months.

He had been a mould maker at the Kimble Glass Co. for the last 47 years and was a veteran of World War I and a member of the Eagles Lodge; also a member of the American Flint Glass Workers' Union, Local No. 50.

He is survived by the widow, Edith; three daughters, Mrs. Ralph Herrick of Muncie, Mrs. Charles Crockett of Blountsville and Miss Betty Miller at home; three sons, Robert, Jr., and Richard, both of Muncie, and Raymond, in the service, stationed in Germany, and eight grandchildren.


Researcher notes:Kimble Glass Co. was the name of the old Hemingray plant for a short period of time in the 1950's & 1960's. Robert Miller must have started with Hemingray in 1910 at the age of about 15.
