In Memoriam: Alan H. Miller

Alan H Miller1933-2015

The Palm Beach Civic Association is very grateful for the exceptional life and service of civic association director Alan H. Miller who passed away suddenly on Friday, May 29, 2015.

Alan cared deeply about Palm Beach.  He served on the civic association executive committee, the policy making body of our organization, for 10 years, and chaired our public safety committee.  He was actively engaged in community affairs as a member of the Town of Palm Beach’s Public Employees Relations Commission, the Crime Watch board and executive board of directors, and the town’s Emergency Response Team.    

He graduated from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania with a BS in economics and did his postgraduate work in business and engineering at Northeastern University, Boston College and MIT. He held line and staff positions at Raytheon Company before being promoted to the corporate staff. He was executive vice president of a large New England food processing company, and then was recruited to be president and CEO of Cellu Products Company, which he later purchased. The company, based in North Carolina, manufactured specialty papers, polyolefin films and foams for packaging products and raw materials for converters of disposable hospital, surgical and healthcare products. He invented and patented several products for the company which had manufacturing plants in NC, CT, PA, IL, MS and Germany.

Alan was a board member of Sealed Air Corporation (NYSE), the Laird Group (LSE), and several privately held companies. He also served on the boards of such professional and industry organizations as Institute of Packaging Professionals and Society of Manufacturing Engineers. He was a trustee of Lenoir-Rhyne College in North Carolina, a life trustee of the Kravis Center, and former president of the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County.

He and his wife, Harriet, lived in Palm Beach for more than 30 years. They were married for 60 years and have three married children and seven grandchildren.

Alan Miller was a strong Civic Association supporter and our friend.  We will miss his upbeat spirit, his visionary thinking and his enthusiasm for Palm Beach.  He was truly devoted to protecting and improving our special town.
