Dell “D-Millz” Miller
July 27, 1978 – February 27, 2021

The skate family has lost a brother, Mr. Dell Miller, aka D-Millz.  D-Millz was a religious man, husband, father of three, and a multi-talented musician, producer, singer and member of JBXperience skate club.  He was kind spirited and deeply humble.  He touched the lives of all who knew him in more ways than he probably ever knew.  He lived his life doing what he loved to do, music was his passion and his gift.  He used his passion to provide skaters, steppers and all who heard his music the opportunity to be the beneficiaries of his gift.

On the day he passed, Dell woke up knowing that God had blessed him with a beautiful day.  He posted his thoughts on Facebook saying “Happy Saturday everybody!! I hope you have a gr8 day!!”  As people responded, the replied back, personally touching all he could.  Let this serve as a reminder to us all that tomorrow is not promised to any of us and each day is a gift that we should cherish.
