Gerald A. Miller “Jerry,” age 89, was born in Eagle Rock on July 11, 1917 and passed away on August 8, 2006. Jerry was a long time resident of Naples, Long Beach. Jerry started his own company, Starline Engineering, which he and his wife operated for almost 40 years. He was the inventor of the igniting system for the Atlas Missile used throughout our military. Jerry and Pat built their dream home on the peninsula in Long Beach where he spent the last 11 years enjoying the view of the bay and ocean. Jerry is survived by his wife of 63 years, Patricia Miller; his son, Christopher Miller; daughter, Suzi Halsted; his grandson, Christopher Halsted; sister-in-law, Jeanette; nieces, Peggy, Patty, and Tina; and many other family members and loving friends.
