Jack was born May 1, 1939, the son of Verle and Corrine (Zobel) Miller in Fertile. He married Eva Huerta on July 20, 1957, in Mason City.
A graduate of Fertile High School, class of 1957, Jack worked all his life as a mechanic. He worked at the Shell Station in Mason City, Sears in Mason City for 19 years, and was a partner with his brother, Earl and nephew, Dan, in Miller’s Diesel and Automotive. He always took great pride in his work.
