Shane Hunter Miller


Shane Hunter Miller, 45, of Wilmington, passed away on February 8, 2019. He was born in Wilmington on May 21, 1973.

As a young boy, Shane had a passion for skateboarding and excelled in the sport. As a teenager into his adulthood, Shane loved surfing. While living in Hawaii on Sunset Beach, on the Island of Oahu, his uncle was instrumental in teaching him how to ride the big waves. The North shore was his home away from home. After moving back to the Mainland, Shane continued to skateboard and surf as much as possible. Shane was loved by many and never met a stranger. He was so passionate about the program he attended. Shane was kind and loving and helped anyone he could. At one time, he owned his own painting business, but due to a previous back injury and severe epilepsy, he was unable to continue in his business. He suffered a great deal with his back pain and seizers. We know that Shane is now out of pain and in peace with his Lord and Savior.
Shane is survived by his mother Robin Miller, Sister Shanon Miller. We will keep him in our hearts and love him forever

    May you hold dear your many happy memories of Shane. What a beautiful person he was. May you find comfort in knowing that he is not suffering but is asleep. Have faith in God's promise for the future when He will end sickness and death forever, Isaiah 33:24, Revelation 21:4. The most wonderful hope of all is that of the resurrection when our loved ones can be reunited with us again, Acts 24:15 and Psalms 37:11, 29, 34. Please accept my condolences and may Jehovah the God of all comfort and his beloved son Jesus strengthen you in the days ahead.

    Tough day just heard about Shane. Me and Shane go back-we were teenagers when we first met. I’m broken hearted to find out he’s gone. But I’m happy to know he won’t suffer. Shane and I always kept in touch and I could call him a true friend. Because no matter what, he was honest with me. All he ever wanted was to be accepted and loved. We love you. You will be missed.

    Robin, we are heartbroken about yours and Shannon's loss. My memories of Shane were the early days as described in his obituary, when Marshall and I lived together at Sunset Beach and we were all early to the North Shore. Shane and Shannon were amazing little Haole kids enjoying the Hawaii lifestyle at Kuilima. We hadn't spoken in quite a while, but Shane happened to meet an old friend of mine recently and had asked for my number. He was going to call to get caught up. I am bummed that I never received that call. Love and prayers!

    Robin; I am so sorry to find out that Shane passed. I was able to see on and off over the years many times. We talked of Hawaii; you; Shannon, and about life in general . I remember sharing with him how much you helped me too. He smiled and was happy. Sending love and a hug. Guy
