The Passing of Carl Miller, Longtime BOJC & PVFF Member

By Bob Eichler

Carl Frederick “Butch” Miller
On Saturday night, November 24th, the Maryland Fly Fishing Community lost a great man and friend. After a series of health setbacks in the last couple of months, Carl Frederick “Butch” Miller, 85, passed away peacefully in his sleep. He was an Army veteran having fought in the Korean War. Few people have given more of their time and talents to Brotherhood of the Jungle Cock (BOJC), amongst countless other organizations that promoted Wildlife Management and Conservation than Carl did. He was a great friend, member and longtime supporter of the PVFF, having made countless donations to our Club and Annual Banquet. He always included Raffle items for the children. Some of you may also remember Carl was the person who drove Frank Smoot towards the end of his life to all of the events Frank attended. To say he left us with some big shoes to fill would be a gross understatement. His tireless energy, witty jokes and endless smiles will be sorely missed.
