Lunden "Shane" Miller was born on January 11, 1977 to Beverly Jean (Pierce) and Marvin Don Miller, Jr. in Blackwell, OK. What a beautiful bouncing baby boy!
When Shane was 5 years old, he was joined by a sister, Decky LaDawn, whom he thought was the neatest little thing. He sure was proud to be a Big Brother!
Shane attended Ponca City schools throughout his entire childhood. Shane enjoyed playing all sports and was determined to excel at everything he did. He was exceptionally good at football and baseball. He began baseball at an early age and was chosen to play in the Little League World Series in Casper, Wyo. He continued playing baseball and football through high school. Shane was a devoted OU Sooner fan.
While still in high school, Shane relocated to Aurora, CO, to live with his father, Donnie. Later, his girlfriend, Kara moved to Aurora also. In 1996, Shane and Kara had a beautiful baby girl, Horizon. Shane was employed by American Web Publishing where he had many friends. In no time, Shane had taken to the slopes when he had some free time. It was just another sport to Shane that he knew he could perform well. When Shane would set his mind to do something, it was hard to persuade him differently.
In 1998, Shane and Kara decided to move back to Ponca City, OK where Shane began working for Conoco. Not long after, a son, Lunden Gage was born. Shane now had his family complete whom he loved very much. Having them near him was his greatest passion. Many, many pictures of a fun, loving father playing with his children are testimony of that. Shane was good-looking and very photogenic, usually letting anyone snap a picture at any given time.
Shane will always be remembered for his gentle heart, winning smile, warm hugs, and affectionate personality.
