Jesuit Father William T. Miller died on June 13, 2016. He was born in Camden, New Jersey, on July 4, 1941. He graduated from Bishop Eustace High School in Pennsauken, New Jersey, and entered the Society of Jesus at the Novitiate of St. Isaac Jogues in Wernersville, Pennsylvania, in 1959. He received his bachelor’s degree from Loyola Seminary in Shrub Oak, New York, and his Master of Divinity from Woodstock College, New York.

As a scholastic, Fr. Miller taught physics at St. Joseph’s Prep in Philadelphia, but following ordination, and having completed his studies in theology, began his many assignments teaching theology at Saint Louis University, Regis University in Denver and Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington.
