Ray Owens Miller, 71, of Cumberland, passed away Thursday, Sept. 7, 2017, at his home.

He enjoyed spending time with his friends as a lifetime member of the K-Bar. Ray was a member of Cumberland Grace Brethren Church. He really enjoyed going for rides. Above all else, he loved spending time with family, especially his grandchildren and their activities. Ray will be missed by many and remembered for his wit and unique sense of humor.
