Alton "Al" Benefield Miller, 79, returned to his heavenly home on August 8, 2018 after complications with a respiratory illness.
Al will be lovingly remembered by his wife of almost 28 years, Eloise “Weezie”, and his children, Mark Miller, Mike Miller (Amy), Missy Middlebrooks (Chad), Janice Hollon, Debra Bassell (Bruce), James “Buddy” Flournoy (Rhonda), John Flournoy (Debbie), and Barbara Hines. Al will also be fondly remembered by his 20 grandchildren and 30 great-grandchildren, and by his sister, Nola Hampton. Al is preceded in death by four sisters.
Al was a devoted member of the Georgia Road Church of Christ, and for the last 42 years a loved neighbor in the Eclectic community. His automotive garage was a steady and enduring fixture, known for being the best and fairest around. “Mr. Al”, as he was known by patrons and friends, always had a smile and a handshake for anyone who visited his establishment. He will be missed by one and all, but especially by his family. He was an awesome dad.
Visitation will be held on Saturday, August 11, 2018 at 12:00 p.m. at the Georgia Road Church of Christ, followed by the funeral and graveside service at 1:00 p.m. Minister Mel Futrel will be officiating, Linville Memorial Funeral Home directing. Those who so desire may make memorial donations in memory of Alton to the Georgia Road Church of Christ.
