Remembering Sam Miller
It is with great sadness to announce the passing of Samuel H. Miller.
Sam Miller wholeheartedly offered his support and was instrumental in our dream becoming a reality when the Greater Cleveland Peace Officers Memorial was dedicated on May 14, 1993. He continued to be one of the major reasons the Memorial was built and maintained in the condition that is reflective of the respect and honor due to our fallen heroes. Sam was a friend to all law enforcement and survivors. He will be missed. Sam was 97 years old.
Keeping The Promise... to never forget our fallen heroes.™
