Darnell Miller, Jr.

April 22, 1974 ~ May 5, 2022 (age 48)


Darnell “DJ” Miller Jr. was born April 22, 1974 at Shands in Gainesville, Fl to the late Darnell Miller Sr. and Pamela Anderson. He was a rambunctious child with a humble spirit that chose to live life in his own unique way.
DJ was a hard worker that used the skills that he learned through out life to enrich others and bring forth joy. He was a roofer, a landscape technician, a grill master, a fisherman, a hunter, a protector, a friend, a cousin, a nephew, a brother, a son and most importantly a father. His most beloved creation was his daughter. They spent many days just talking and he loved her unconditionally. His daughter being born was one of his most cherished moments.
DJ was the person that you could call at anytime of the day or night and he would stop what he was doing to help. He was selfless in the way that he would give. He always had a smile on his face and showed his family love, loyalty and appreciation in his actions. He was a practical joker with a heart of gold, never hesitating to help people out. Because he was a big kid at heart, all children he met adored him. He never hesitated to let people know that he loved them and touched the lives of so many people in such a short amount of time. Rest in Heaven DJ you are loved and missed.
Other precedents in death include his father Darnell Miller Sr.
Loving memories are left with his daughter Danielle Mourning Star Miller; mother Pamela Anderson; siblings, Peatron Cummings, Aubrey Anderson (Karen), Bernice Foster, Tisha Miller and Amina Midnight; best friend Juan “JJ” McLemore; hosts of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
