Edward M. Miller passed away Saturday, Feb. 8, at the age of 89.

Miller was an attorney at law for more than 60 years and retired just this past August. He was an expert in insurance and franchise law and authored "Current Issues in Insurance Policy Litigation." For more than 40 years, Miller's firm, Law Office of Edward M. Miller, helped clients with evaluation, arbitration and litigation.

Miller was proud to have served in the Army Judge Advocate General's Corp. during the Korean conflict and for many years beyond. He attended the University of Michigan for both an undergraduate degree and a law degree from the Law School. He was a life-long season ticket holder for University of Michigan football, and a passionate fan.

A winning football season gave him pleasure but the greatest joy of his life came from the people who survive him: his wife, Leanne; his children, Claudia (William) Kretzchmar, David (Mary Beth) Miller, Joe Aller, and Tracy Aller; his grandchildren, Brendan (Corey) Kretzchmar, Russell Kretzchmar, Rachel and Lisa Miller, Carly Aller, and Hannah and Sammy Cohen; and his great-grandson, William Cole Kretzchmar.

Services were coordinated by The Dorfman Chapel ( on Monday, Feb. 10.
