There are postings as well on the Utah and Idaho forum with a lot of responses. It's sad to hear of his passing, but have known about his advanced diabetes problems. Diabetes is a brutal condition to have.

He had done an awful lot for the franchise itself and for the Utah/Idaho area. With his businesses he hired several thousand people. With his scholarship involvements with the area he sent several hundred kids to school. The mountain states will not forget what he had done to promote the franchise.

He was indeed one of the good guys in the NBA. RIP, Mr. Miller.

64 is just too young to go. My thoughts are with his family at this tough time.
