Obituary Barry Garfield Miller

Bergen - Barry Garfield Miller, 50, of Bergen, passed away suddenly doing what he loved: helping others on Wednesday, (September 23, 2015) at United Memorial Medical Center, in Batavia due to injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident.

Mr. Miller was born June 6, 1965 in Batavia, the son of Tracy and Loretta (Werner) Miller, of Bergen.

Barry was a member of the Bergen United Methodist Church and the New York State Association of County Coroners and Medical Examiners. He was very community oriented and was the Chief of Emergency Medical Services in Bergen and a member of the Bergen Fire Department for 31 years. Mr. Miller started the Bergen Fire Department Explorers Program and was a Genesee County Coroner. Barry served on the Bergen Town Board for several years.

He graduated from Byron-Bergen High School in 1983 and was owner of Miller's Millworks in Bergen, and the Beaver River Lodge in the Adirondacks. He also worked for several years for the Rochester Eye and Tissue Bank.

Anyone who knew Barry will remember him as a very energetic person who loved to fly his powered parachute, snowmobile, boat, waterski, ride his motorcycle and camp.

He was highly supportive of the Bergen Community and was proud to help anyone he could. An extremely generous man, one of his favorite ways to demonstrate his love and support of others was supporting battered women and serving the people of Bergen and Genesee County.

Surviving along with his parents are his sister, Pamela (David) McCarthy and their children, Rebekah, Rachal, and Shannon McCarthy all of Baldwinsville. Family and friends may call on Sunday and Monday from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Bergen United Methodist Church, 27 South Lake Street, Bergen. Barry’s Funeral Service will be at 11:00 AM, Tuesday, (September 29, 2015) at Pearce Memorial Church, 4322 North Buffalo Road, North Chili.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Bergen Rescue Squad, P.O. Box 428, Bergen, NY 14416. Burial will be in Mt. Rest Cemetery, Bergen.
