William A. Miller, 85 of Old Bridge, New Jersey passed away on Tuesday, May 11, 2021 at The Atrium Care Center in Matawan, New Jersey. William was born Saturday, April 18, 1936 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to William and Josephine Miller (nee McGee). William attended Villanova University for his undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering, continuing to the University of Notre Dame for his Master's degree in Chemical Engineering. It was during his studies at the University of Notre Dame that William met the love of his life, Marie DeVall. The couple married in 1964 at Sacred Heart Cathedral at the University of Notre Dame and then moved to New Jersey. William began working as a Chemical Engineer and obtained another Master's degree in Engineering Management from the Newark College of Engineering (now NJIT). William and Marie resided in Bridgewater and raised their children there. In 1996, they moved to Woolwich Twp before subsequently settling into Old Bridge 4 years ago. William belonged to the American Institute of Chemical Engineers and received 10 U.S. Patents in the field of Chemical Engineering during his career at Allied Corp. He continued his career at Ausimont USA Inc (Solvay) and Fisher Co. William was a devout Catholic who was very active in the church. He was a lector at church and a strong Pro-Life advocate. William served as Past Grand Knight and was a 4th degree Knight at the Knights of Columbus Council #7526. He was a man of faith and prayed a rosary daily. William enjoyed traveling for both business and personal. He was an avid gardener and an excellent yet 'creative' chef. William often recreated recipes from his international travels and never made a recipe the same way twice. He was a bright and accomplished man who loved learning. William's family will remember him best for his fun-loving spirit and ready sense of humor which was never diminished by his illness. William is survived by his beloved wife of 57 years Marie, his loving children Dr. Anne Miller, Mary Frances Miller, William G. Miller, and Elizabeth Gaynor and by his cherished grandchildren Peter, Emily, Andrew, Samantha, and Alex. He was a loving husband, a dedicated father and a doting grandfather who treasured time with family. William was predeceased by his parents and sister, Joan Marie Miller. He will be missed by all who loved him. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:30 AM on Monday at Saint Ambrose Church located at 83 Throckmorton Ln Old Bridge, New Jersey 08857.
