Chad Eric Miller was born May 16, 1966 in Ada, MN the son of Earl and Ruth (Erickson) Miller. Chad lived in Twin Valley, MN until he was five and then moved to Perham where he grew up on Paul Lake where he learned to waterski at age seven. He attended Perham High School and graduated in 1984. Chad started his working career at Barrel O’ Fun where he did almost every job available, eventually getting his boiler license in 2016 before retiring in 2022 because of cancer.

Chad met his wonderful wife Cora in 2011, finally settling down after spending 17 years fishing walleye tournaments. Meeting and falling in love with Cora was one of the best things that ever happened to him. With the addition of Cora, Chad gained a great stepson who he got to hunt, fish, and spend time with. James gave Chad the opportunity to be a grandfather to two grandsons. Chad loved spending time with Russell and Sawyer and taught them everything he could. He also built countless great memories with his nieces and nephews. Chad loved living with Cora in their home near Marion Lake and he appreciated all the time he was able to spend with her.
