Bryan Leroy Miller
We are sad to announce the passing of our son, Bryan L. Miller. He died at the age of 52, on April 9, 2023 at his home in Lincoln, NE.
Bryan’s humor and quick wit always put a smile on everyone’s face. He enjoyed computing, karaoke, music, movies, and most of all spending his days at his campground.
He is survived by his family, many friends, and colleagues.
We will be holding a celebration later this summer at his campground, the place he found peace and happiness.
We miss him so very much!

Condolences for Bryan Leroy Miller
Bryan was a trusted colleague and friend. He’ll be greatly missed here at UNL.
We are so saddened to hear about Bryan’s passing. He was one of our camping buddies at Woodland Campgrounds in Little Sioux, IA. Bryan always made us laugh and we will miss him. He was a loved and cherished friend. His family are in our thoughts and prayers.
I always enjoyed talking with Bryan. He had such a great sense of humor. He will be missed.
The Chemistry Department will miss Bryan’s steady hand in dealing with a variety of IT issues, and we will miss his dry (and occasionally wry) sense of humor while doing so. He was a very good man.
To the family and friends of Bryan Miller, I am very sorry for your loss. Bryan was a valued and hard working staff member of the College of Arts and Sciences for seventeen years. He will be missed by all who knew and worked with him.
With my deepest condolences,
Mark Button, Dean, College of Arts and Sciences
University of Nebraska-Lincoln
I knew Bryan for many years while working at UNL. He helped me through many IT issues, including those pesky “ID-10-T” problems, as he called them. He had a great sense of humor and made me laugh a lot. Bryan was one of the good guys, and will be missed.
Bryan was my manager for almost 7 years at UNL. He taught me so much. He always made me feel comfortable coming to him with any concerns or problems. I will miss his guidance and sense of humor.
Bryan was a good tech lead to work under. I came from a different work environment and admittedly has some initial trouble fitting in. When I went to him and explained the issues, he worked with me to couch what was needed in ways I was familiar with. This is a mark of a good trainer, and he always had time to let me vent or listen to my concerns. He will be missed, and the team is less without his presence and wit.
Bryan was the tech support manager that trained me when I started at UNL over 10 years ago. The memories and list is long. He was a mentor to me in so many ways. He always listened and willing to wear many hats for the tech team. He had a sense of humor for those days at work. He always had all the tech answers for us. He was a great worker friend mentor. You will be missed a lot.
Having been Bryan’s office mate for several years, I will sorely miss his presence. I’ll miss bouncing IT questions off of him, and chatting in general. He seemed to be a gentle soul and I never saw him get angry over anything.
I always enjoyed working with and talking to Bryan when our paths crossed at UNL. May his memory be a blessing.
During retirement I always made sure to check in with Bryan when I visited the department for mail pickup etc. Covid made this more difficult. Still, I was able to communicate with Bryan via email. I cherish the visits I had with Bryan before I retired and after I retired. He always had wonderful stories about his family and travels. We also visited many times about his special campground. My wife and I have a motorhome which he decided had a high enough ceiling for him after a visit at our home. He always showed me his latest squeeze toy. While he helped me with many computer issues I will remember him as a best friend and fun to be with. I was shocked to hear of his passing and will deeply miss him.
Our family sends condolences and prayers.
Love, Scott, Diane Miller
Rest in Peace Son.😢 You are Loved.🥰
So sorry to hear this! I’ve lost 2 children & it’s so hard. My heart aches for you. Have a beautiful, memorable celebration of him!
I am so sorry to hear of his passing. He was a bit of fun. Please contact me when you have a celebration of his life event scheduled as I would like to personally share my condolences and memories with his family.
All my sympathies. Bryan was a Campus Rec friend who inspired all of us who weren’t gifted with great athletic abilities. He met life with great and good humor.
It’s been 2 weeks but I am still processing the loss of Bryan. I have gotten used to seeing Bryan couple of times a year at our hangout place Buffalo Wild wings especially around our Birthdays. We were just making plans to meet around his birthday when i got to hear this shocking news.
I have known Bryan for more than 15 years since my Grad school days. I worked with Bryan during those days and a short stint after graduation before I left university but we always made sure to connect couple of times a year to catch up. We shared the same office and sat next to each other and had lot of memories from our time together especially Bryan’s singing pop quizzes and the Americanism he used to teach me. He would be the Skipper and I was the Gilligan as he would call us.
Bryan was very passionate about work and always wanted to make sure people are taken care of and had same expectations from everyone else. We did lot of projects together and one of them is still there in use and that will be the legacy of our friendship.He loved working whether at the University or outside and I was always amazed where he drew all this energy from.
After he got the camping spot, he loved going there in summers over the weekends and I was able to see his lovely spot and his community there during one of the visits.
I will always remember our time together and he will always be missed.
I want to express my deepest condolences for the loss of your son, Bryan. He was a beautiful soul and he will be missed.
Bryan was one of the first people that I met when starting at UNL. He was so kind and funny, and I instantly felt welcome because of him. Our offices share a wall so when I first started, he told me that I should let him know if his music was too loud. He wasn’t kidding… he liked loud music 😊 But he had such a good taste in music that I never minded 😉 It sure has been quiet without him around ☹ I will miss his witty comments and heartfelt smiles.
Wishing you strength and courage in the days ahead, and hoping that your memories of Bryan bring you comfort and peace.
I’m so sorry and shocked to hear of Bryan’s passing. I very much enjoyed all of my encounters with him. He helped me with a long list of computer issues over the years and he always did so with a great attitude. He had a big impact on those that worked around him. He’ll be missed.
I was so shocked to hear of Bryan’s passing. Have known him from camp since he first bought in. Always cheerful and smiling. Peace be with Bryan and his family.
