Mitch and Sharon, his second wife, were married and settled down in Sheridan in 2003. He spent several years hauling drilling mud to Fairbanks, Alaska, and loved most every minute of it. He would tell stories of the buffalo, grizzly bears, moose, caribou and Bighorn sheep he saw on every trip. After retiring in 2006, he spent his time caring for his land, horses, a few cows and his border collie, Levi. He loved his Country deeply and the only hobby he could be said to have was keeping his eye on the government, arguing politics, and swapping stories with his friends. He loved it here in Sheridan where, instead of smog and traffic, he could enjoy the green of summer, the orange of autumn, and the hoot of an owl or howl of a coyote.Mitch was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Scott Miller.
