Dakota Christian Miller was born on April 18, 2006 in Great Falls, Montana.
October 3, 2023 he started out with a very chipper “Good morning” and his infectious smile, little did we know, it ended up being Dakota’s final day here with us. He died tragically in a car accident.
Dakota loved to hunt and fish, and the great outdoors was his happy place. He loved to be out in the woods, and in his own words, he was going to get his first elk this year. He was homeschooled and would have graduated in the Spring of 2024. He was a very analytical thinker, and he would continually ask questions until he fully understood. He started working when he was young, doing small tasks as a shy boy who was scared to talk to people, and quickly grew up to be a leader at work, talking to his coworkers and customers.
Dakota and his brother David did speech and debate together in STOA, and they made it to the national tournament in 2022-2023 and did exceptionally well. Dakota was very competitive. He and his younger brother did everything together. People often mistook them for twins even though they were 16 months apart. Dakota really loved life and always encouraged others to pursue their dreams.
He is survived by his father Ben, his mother Anna, 20 year old sister Mindy, 16 year old brother David, and 13 year old brother Brady.
