OBIT MillerDavid “Rosko” Miller lost his long battle with cancer on July 25.

He was born Jan. 1, 1959, in Mountain Home, Idaho, and lived in places such as Burns; Sitka, Alaska; Pullman and Seattle, Wash.; and finally, in Louisiana.

David joined the United States Marines, where he served from October 1979 to May 1985. After his service to his country, he went on to get his certification as a diving technician and became a commercial diver. In his endeavors as a commercial diver, he adopted the nickname “Rosko.” That’s the name people came to know him by.

David had a passion for riding Harleys and was the road captain for the motorcycle club, Hole-N-Da-Wall chapter in Lafayette, La. He had many adventures in his life, including his time in Key West, Fla., overseas, and of course, his time in the Northwest, where most of his family resided.

Although David never had children or family of his own, he had a strong sense of family and came to the Northwest for regular visits.

He is survived by his mother, MaryAnn Gohl; his girlfriend, Susan Herbert; brothers, Bruce Miller and wife, Valerie, Robert Gohl and wife, Tricia; sisters, Debbie Miller and husband, Bing, Tammy Downing and husband, Chris; several nieces and nephews, including Crystal Miller and Alisha Bender; one great-nephew and one great-niece, who nicknamed him “Uncle Pirate.”

He was preceded in death by his father, Archie Jackson Miller.

David will be laid to rest at Tahoma National Cemetery in Kent, Wash.
