Dennis Dean Miller - Class of 1970
Dec 14, 1952 - Jul 18, 2017
Dennis grew up in Southern California, where he graduated from UCLA Dental School. He accepted a dental residency in the U.S. Air Force after which he joined the dental practice of Dr. Tim Barnes in Mariposa, and was a member of the Yosemite Dental Association. Having a practice in Mariposa allowed him to be near Yosemite, a favorite place of his. Dennis was well-traveled and enjoyed reading, hiking, kayaking and biking. He also enjoyed golf, and was a member of the Spring Creek Golf Club. He was most comfortable in nature. Dennis truly lived by the Boy Scout creed. He was a modest man; a quiet observer with a great sense of humor, and treated everybody equally and respectfully with caring and kindness, never saying an unkind word. Above all, he loved his family.
He leaves behind his wife, Tammy Miller, his sister, Kathy Morris, and his extended family including his beloved patients and staff.
