Douglas C. Miller‚ a 34 year old Firefighter with Rescue 5 in Staten Island‚ gave his life on 9/11. Doug was on the Department just shy of 6 years. He began his career as a firefighter with Ladder 172/Engine 330 in Brooklyn. Douglas was also an instructor at the Fire Training Center and an avid scuba diver.
He was the proud father of 3 beautiful daughters‚ Elizabeth 7‚ Rachel 6‚ and Katie 4. His wife of 12 years‚ Laurie‚ will always miss his incredible sense of humor‚ his wonderful smile‚ and his kind manner.
Doug was a man born with great concern for others. He lived his dream of serve to community within the FDNY as well as on the volunteer level as Chief of the Mill Rift Fire Department.
Every individual who had the chance to meet Doug fell in love with his spirit.
Doug was warm‚ sincere‚ and full of life‚ and gave fully of that life to save others.
