I first met Larry Miller in 1990 when I was in high school and volunteered for his campaign for State Representative from Shelton, Stratford, and Trumbull. In one of our first conversations I asked him what his platform was, and he said: “I’m just a regular guy trying to make a difference. If I can help people’s lives in some small way, then that’s my platform.” That summed up Larry’s humble, quiet dedication to our families in his 23 year career in the legislature.
Larry passed away May 31, at 78 after a long bout with cancer. The loss will be felt most by those he loved the most-his wife of 54 years Millie, his three kids, and four grandkids. He was such a phenomenal and loving presence in their family, and they were the center of his life. But all of us in Shelton, Stratford, and Trumbull will mourn Larry’s loss as one of our leaders.
