Pleasanton Preps: Remembering my dad, Harry Miller

Original post made on Aug 18, 2021

As I write this, I am still stuck looking for words to describe my feelings. The obvious words like saddened, devastated, heartbroken and crushed certainly apply, but there is a feeling lingering that I do not know how to describe.

My deepest condolences on the loss of your father. Many people will not remember, or
know about the profound contributions your dad made for the youth of Pleasantion
I am lucky to have known him, and worked with him. He will be missed.

A Great article and tribute to your father, Dennis. I did not know him, but your sharing this has given us a good picture of him. Thanks for sharing.

In the 70's you would never miss the big orange windbreaker at fields all over town... If Pleasanton ever carved its own Mt. Rushmore, Harry Miller would own a spot on it!

What a wonderful tribute to a wonderful man, your dad. He played a big role in my brother Dan Gabor's short life and for that I am forever grateful.
My heartfelt condolences to your entire family.

Thank you for this beautiful tribute to your dad. He was one of the most formative people of my life, if not THE most formative. I will always remember with great fondness the road trips to random games all over the state and all over the country. I even remember with fondness the "fun runs" almost daily around the entire Sports Park. They were decidedly NOT fun, but they required so much discipline and so much persistence, that it was easy to carry those values with me throughout my life. I truly loved your dad. It was hard to understand those feelings as a 11 and 12 year old, but I do now.

My condolences on the loss of your father, Dennis. Your tribute to him is beautiful and inspiring. I really enjoyed learning about his contributions to youth sports. My son enjoyed playing with BUS for many years. I also enjoyed my completely unexpected time as a “soccer mom”. Thank you Harry Miller.
