Born in El Paso, Texas on February 11, 1945, Michael Edward miller attended Jesuit High School and graduated in 1963. He excelled in drama and debate, which gave him the gift of gab. He then moved to San Francisco to attend the University of San Francisco, where he graduated in 1967 with a major in history.

After graduating,  he spent his career in the insurance industry and retired in 2006. Michael was the person to go to when insurance was impossible to get, and he built an exceptional reputation.

Michael leaves Joseph Porcoro, his roommate and on again-off again partner of 43 years; and many relative throughout the country.

Michael's ability to converse with all kinds of people, from four year olds to 95 year olds, on any subject, caused him to amass many friend sin the Bay area. His expertise was in the area of religion. Michael could name all the popes from the beginning of the Catholic Church, and had an exceptional memory for all other religious faiths.

He can only be described as an absolutely delightful person to be around who never had a negative word to say about anyone.

He will be sorely missed. He was truly a unique soul.
