On May 19, 1951, in Baker, Oregon, Frank and Odetta (Jacobs), Miller welcomed Lynn Lamont Miller into the world. He attended high school at Baker High, graduating in 1970. Lynn took some classes to learn about the heating and sheet metal industry. He worked as a school bus driver for Baker County, a truck driver for Lehman Farm for three seasons, and drove truck for Radford trucking for approximately ten years. He also farmed and was self-employed.
When he wasn't busy working, he enjoyed deer and elk hunting, camping, and ATV adventures; he loved shooting ground squirrels and going on mountain drives. Lynn was always very involved with his church, the Church of Jesus Christ Latter-day Saints in Baker City; he also served as a return missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Alton. Illinois. He was also a member of the Powder River Sportsman Club.
Lynn was full of piss and vinegar, but he never went a day without his contagious smile! He loved having conversations with locals, and he thoroughly enjoyed helping where he could.
