Regis (Jay)  Miller, Jr.

November 03, 1949 - November 30, 2020


Regis (Jay) Miller, Jr.
71 years of age and a resident of Zelienople, PA had a long-fought battle with cancer and was called home to God on November 30, 2020. His wife Regina, son Charles, daughter Roberta and son-in-law Braden Lambros were by his side as he passed.
Jay was born in Pittsburgh, PA on November 3, 1949. His parents Elizabeth (Schneider) Miller and Regis John Miller preceded him in death, as did his eldest son Regis John Miller III.
Jay is also survived by his sister Mary Beth (and Robert) Latch, as well as his brothers Gene Miller, Mike (and Cindy) Miller, and Matthew (and Sue Miller). His mother in law, Sarah Battaglia Tokash,also survives him, as well as his granddaughter Sara Miller, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and in-laws. Jay had many close friends and work colleagues. All will certainly miss his laugh, his love for life, his humor, and his corny jokes.
Jay married the love of his life, Regina Sue Battaglia Miller, on July 26, 1980. They recently celebrated their 40th wedding Anniversary.
He was a graduate of Point Park College and North Allegheny High School.
Jay had a successful career in the wholesale produce industry where he was President and co-owner of Premier Produce. After retirement, he directed a growing busines of wine grapes and supplies at Sunfresh Food Service. Both businesses were located in the Strip District.
In addition to spending time with his family, Jay had many hobbies and devoted as much time as he could to golf, fishing, and his Harley Davidson. Most recently,he was involved in the Allegheny Chapter of the BMW Car Club and thoroughly enjoyed driving his 2007 BMW Z4 Roadster.
At his request, there will be no viewing. A memorial mass will be celebrated at 10am on Monday, December 28th at Saint Ferdinand’s Church (2535 Rochester Rd, Cranberry Twp., PA 16066).

Memorial donations can be made to The UPMC Hillman Cancer Center-Patient Care: https://hillman.upmc.com/difference/supporting/make-a-gift/how-to-donate . A special thanks to his UPMC doctors, nurses, and hospital staff. He would joke that he should be earning reward points for the many times he was seen by his UPMC doctors and was helped by hospital stays.
Jay loved life and we can honor his memory by living each day to the fullest, loving each other, and always smiling.

    My heart hurts for all who love him. Precious memories of the whole Miller family and our unique Meadow Road family. God bless all.

    Miller Family, I was so saddened to hear of Jay’s passing. The best part of the annual ritual of picking up wine grapes was the casual conversation and shared laughs with Jay. Every visit began and ended with a handshake. You just felt better when you got to see and talk to Jay; I can’t think of a better thing to say about anyone. May God bless Jay and his family.

  • John William (Bill) Harris

    I am broken….what a tremendous friend to lose! All the many invites to do things I could never have done without him accepting me in his business acquaintances fold…golf the finer courses in the western PA area, etc. All the little things…Thanks for always being there for Joette and I, Gina and Jay!!! We love you!!!
