Dr. Allan Miller was born on July 4, 1935 to Jen and Simon Miller in Windsor, Ontario, and passed on January 28, 2022. At the age of two, his family moved to Toledo where he graduated from Scott High School and the University of Toledo. He then went on to earn his doctorate in Osteopathic Medicine from Kansas City University in 1961. After brief stints in Seattle, WA and Flint, MI, Allan opened his medical practice in Toledo in 1964. Allan met the love of his life, Ilene Rosenberg while he was at the University of Toledo and they married in 1962. Their wonderful marriage and partnership is an inspiration to all who knew them.
They have three children, Denise Horwitz (Steve), Stacie Newmark (Jeff) and Dr. Josh Miller (Dr. Jill). Allan and Ilene always put family first and they instilled this in their children and grandchildren.
Allan was greatly impacted by his time as a Boy Scout and Eagle Scout. Allan valued community and gave much of his time and talents to various organizations. He was Chief of Staff at Parkview Hospital, President of the National Osteopathic Proctology Association, Dean of Students at Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine, Vice-President of the local AMA chapter, and mentor to hundreds of osteopathic medical students, many of whom he was still in contact with.
Allan participated in all aspects of Temple Shomer Emunim, including serving as President and Treasurer. He was also a member of the Jewish Federation of Greater Toledo Board, the Toledo Board of Jewish Education and many other Jewish organizations. Allan was a life-long bridge player, a relaxed golfer, a lover of Tai Chi, and a runner before it was fashionable. After retirement, Allan gave even more of himself to the community by tutoring elementary school students in the Toledo Public Schools through Mentors in Education.
Allan lived his life with kindness, humility, high ethical standards and respect for all human beings. Everyone who met him loved him.
Allan is survived by his wife of almost 60 years, Ilene; his children and his grandchildren, Dr. Amy Horwitz, Jessica Horwitz, Molly Newmark and Maddie, Jack and Sydney Miller. He is also survived by his brothers, Michael Miller (Jane) of San Francisco and Ronald Miller (Nedra) of Houston, Texas; along with many loving nieces and nephews.
