Arthur Stanley Miller, a lifelong Californian, died Dec. 14. He was 68.
Miller grew up in Granada Hills on a ranch with his parents and brothers. He attended Granada Hills High School. He began working in public relations in the 1960s with Anheuser Busch and Busch Gardens in Van Nuys. Miller spent a short amount of time in Florida, but quickly returned to California. In the 1980s, he opened up his own business, Calmark, which has become a leading company in producing custom covers for motor homes and other vehicles. In 1984 Miller moved from the San Fernando Valley to Malibu.
Miller is remembered as a larger than life and humorous man. His motto was, “Anything a man truly wanted could be had, if he knocked hard enough on the doors that guarded it.”
Miller enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren. He was also fond of painting, sculpture and photography.
Miller is survived by his children Natalie, Wynde and Adam, as well as his grandchildren Jolie and Wyatt.
Memorial services will take place on Dec. 23 at Conejo Mountain Funeral Home, 2052 Howard Rd. in Camarillo, at 11 a.m. A celebration of his life will follow at the Spanish Hills Country Club, 999 Crestview Ave. in Camarillo.
