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
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

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
