Ciqala Chayton Miller blessed us on June 2, 2000.
Ciqala just graduated from 8th grade. He had just started working as a commercial fisherman last season.
He loved the outdoors and all the wildlige around him. You could always find him out at Palmer Lake, if he wasn’t finding work to do for others in Loomis. He also enjoyed hunting, football, basketball, bicycling, hunting snakes and bringing home several praying mantis. His mother allowed him to bring five into the home. He was a member of the Loomis Community Church where he attended, as well as assisted and volunteered his time to help others. He was always eager to lend a hand and gave to people from his heart.
He was always pleasant, respectful and kind to everyone. He had a great sense of humor and loved to tell jokes. He was a good role model to others. He was a treasure and a blessing to us all. He touched the lives of everyone he met. For everyone that knew him, he will never be forgotten. He is permanently etched in all our hearts. He will be sadly missed and loved forever.
He is survived by his mother, Lisa, and stepfather Phillip Cox of Loomis, Wash.; his father Richard and stepmother Kristi Miller of Shelton, Wash.; his brothers Ricky and Ariel Miller, Justin and Carolyn Miller, Jack and April Goodwin, David Cox, Paul and Jessica Gage, and Branden Gage. His sisters Larisa Miller and Chanowha Miller, as well as a great number of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. His grandparents, Jerry and Antje Fletcher of Salt Lake City, Utah and Dave and Wanda Mattix of Loomis.
A Memorial Service will be held at 1 p.m. on July 19, this coming Saturday, at the Loomis Community Church in Loomis, Wash.
A memorial fund is set up with Wells Fargo for any donations to help assist the family in this tragic time.
