Owen J. Miller, age 13, of Ripley, NY, passed away unexpectedly at home on Thursday, September 6, 2018.

Owen was born on March 12, 2005 in Westfield, NY, the son of Joshua S. Miller and Aimee D. Rowe of Ripley.

Owen was an 8th grade student at Chautauqua Lake Central School and loved to play video games, build anything with Legos and had played a variety of sports in his youth. Owen loved all animals, especially his Aunt Dra Dra’s dog Keanna and his cat Kylo. Owen had a great sense of humor and loved to make people smile. His Soul was like a starry starry night; beautiful, mysterious and searching; searching for answers. We don’t know all the answers, but we know we need to be kind to one another. We loved Owen, and Owen loved us.

He is further survived by his Paternal Grandfather, Marcus Miller of Ripley, his Maternal Grandparents, Daniel and Sylvia (Dewey) Rowe of Westfield, his Paternal Great Grandmother, Helena Miller of North East, PA, and his Maternal Great Grand
