John Henry Miller, IV, age 58 of Monticello, Arkansas, was tragically and senselessly taken from this world on May 1, 2023. He was born November 8, 1964, in Monticello, Arkansas to the late John Henry Miller, III, and Barbara Ann Boyd Miller. Johnny was a logger, welder, gardener, and jack of all trades. Johnny could work on and fix anything his hands touched. If he wasn't sure how, he would figure it out. He was always willing to help his family and friends with anything they needed. Johnny loved to hunt and fish and be in nature. He thoroughly enjoyed playing pool and dominoes and teaching tricks. He liked to thrift and find vintage and antique items. Johnny loved being on the tractor, bush hogging, dozing and being productive, and keeping his property and his friend's places looking nice. He loved to laugh and tell jokes and raise the spirits of all the people he loved most. He will be deeply missed and loved forever. His family and friends will keep his memory alive.
In addition to his parents Johnny is also preceded in death by many aunts, uncles, and one nephew he loved dearly.
Johnny is survived by his two daughters, Kayla McAfee (Eldon) of Pindall, AR, and Jessica Miller (Kem Bratton) of Yellville, AR; his long-time love, Trisha Miller of Mountain Home, AR; three grandchildren, Marissa Miller-Bratton, Dean McAfee, Ella McAfee, and a new grand baby on the way; a granddaughter Autumn Hatcher (Garrett); great-granddaughter, Aspen Graves; two sisters; two nephews; as well as a host of other family and friends.

Joyce ThompsonMonticello, AR Tuesday, May 9, 2023 I didn't know Johnny well, but what time I was around him, he was a gentleman. He was always helpful and a true friend to my brother in law, Terry Killingsworth. He help him while he was going through Cancer and was unable to do things for himself. He promised Terry that he would continue to help his wife after he was gone, and Johnny stayed true to his word, never asking for a dime. Mowing, fixing tractor, cleaning around the yard, anything that he saw needing to be done. My prayers are with his children.
