Frank was born on August 29, 1964, in Dubuque, Iowa, son of Franklin and Marie (Adams) Miller Sr.
Frank attended Fulton Grade School, Jefferson Middle School and graduated from Hempstead High School. After school he went on to NICC to take classes in HVAC which served him well in his career. Frank was a devoted employee with the Q Casino taking care of the entire building top to bottom for almost 30 years, there was nothing he couldn't fix. He met the love of his life, Sheree Klaeska, in 1981 at Skate Country, and the two wed on June 11, 1983, at St. Luke's United Methodist Church. They had 2 children together and would have celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary this year. In his younger days Frank enjoyed going roller skating, fishing, working on cars, playing his guitars and spending time hanging out with friends. He truly was a jack of all trades and during his off time he painted houses and fixed things for people. Frank especially enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren.
