Wallace Wesley Miller, 83, of Rocky Point went to his heavenly home on Friday, May 17, 2019 and now rests peacefully with his Lord and Savior.
He was born December 19, 1935 in Duplin County, the son of the late Wallace and Mary Iva Langley Miller. Following Mary Iva’s passing, Wesley at the young age of four was raised by John and Rovine Turner, who are now deceased.

Wesley is survived by his wife of 39 years, Carolyn C. Miller; step-children, Beverly Somberg, Melinda Marshburn (Grady), and Nathan Rivenbark, Jr. (Juanita); grandchildren, Acacia, Brooke, and Tasha; six great grandchildren; and many extended family.
Wesley served his country proudly in the US Army and the Army National Guard of North Carolina. After 30 years of service, he was retired from the NC Department of Corrections-Pender County facility.
He was a loving and caring husband, father, granddaddy and friend. Wesley enjoyed fishing, camping, Fox News, and he was known to be quite a jokester. His presence on this earth will be missed.
