The BBA Remembers Bobby Miller


“On behalf of the BBA Membership and Board of Directors, and me personally, we were so saddened to learn of Bobby Miller’s passing. Bobby did a tremendous amount to help grow Burlington and the region’s economy. He was a pioneer, a risk taker and a self-made man who was a vibrant example of how one person can transform a community. Bobby did well: and then he did good, reflecting the true spirit of a community-minded citizen. As both an entrepreneur and philanthropist he exemplified the essential combination that makes one a success in a community like ours. In 1993, the BBA awarded him its highest honor: The Nate Harris Award for Business Person of the Year, a recognition for all he did for all facets of our community. In the years that followed Bobby continued to combine business success with this strong sense of community. He was a friend and mentor to many BBA leaders; myself included. He was always warm and kind. He always cared. Our community is forever grateful to have called him one of our own.” – Kelly Devine, Executive Director
