Logan Wells Miller

May 20, 2000 - Feb. 24, 2018

Date of Service: Mar. 5, 2018

BURLEY – Logan Wells Miller, age 17, of Burley, passed away peacefully on February 24, 2018, at Cassia Regional Hospital after a long courageous battle with multiple health issues.

From the beginning of his mortal life, Logan was challenged physically. Born over six weeks premature on May 20, 2000, to William Isaac “Ike” Miller and Heidi Neiwert, Logan began to leave his mark on all who would come to know and love him in his short but impactful life.

There was no such thing as a stranger to Logan. He greeted nearly everyone with a handshake in order to connect with them on a personal level through touch to show them how important they were to him. He genuinely loved everyone he met and considered them a dear friend. He had a gift in making those around him feel important and loved. His guileless tender heart drew many to him and inspired all of us to be a better person.

His optimism in spite of his challenges were inspiring to all who knew him. Logan probably never knew what it felt like to feel well and yet to him every day was a great day. His infectious laugh was contagious and his contagious smile was infectious. His daily corny jokes were evidence of the joy he wanted to bring into other’s lives.

From a very young age, Logan developed a love for US history. He loved the American Revolutionary War and held George Washington as one of his greatest heroes. He loved to cook and developed a culinary talent. He loved making chocolate chip cookies. If recipes were considered a language, Logan spoke it fluently, and for the last few years of his life it was part of nearly every conversation he had.

Logan was a senior at Burley High School and was very excited to graduate. His senior project, the installation of three additional handicap accessible doors, was very meaningful to him. He was very proud of what he was able to offer to others with disabilities who would come after him.

One of his greatest loves was his volunteer work at Parke View Rehabilitation and Care Center. He loved the residents, the staff, and all he came in contact with at the facility. His work there gave him great purpose and was one of the greatest joys of his life.

Logan was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He had a deep love and testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and he emanated his testimony and love through his actions. He was a spiritual giant who fervently shared his beliefs. His greatest desire was to serve a mission for which he has now been called to serve on the other side of the veil.

Summing up Logan’s life a dear friend once said, “If Logan didn’t touch your heart, you didn’t know Logan.”

Logan is survived by his mother, Heidi Neiwert Miller; his siblings, Samuel Miller, Grace Miller and Reynolds Miller; his maternal grandparents, Garry and Vickie Neiwert; and numerous uncles, aunts and cousins. He was preceded in death by his father, William Isaac Miller; and his paternal grandparents, Roy Isaac Miller and Janet Sorensen Miller.

The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, March 5, at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - Burley Stake Center, 2050 Normal Avenue, in Burley, with Bishop Brent Greener officiating. Burial will follow in Paul Cemetery.

Friends may call from 5 until 7 p.m. Sunday, March 4, at Rasmussen Funeral Home, 1350 E. 16th St., in Burley, and Monday from 9:30 until 10:45 a.m. preceding the service at the church.
