Obituary: Anthony (Tony) Patrick Stokes

Robert Alan Miller of Providence, NC passed away September 2, 2013 at Danville Regional Medical Center after a decline in health since January 2013.
He was a native of Providence, but his heart belonged at the beach. Born December 4, 1952 in Danville Va, he was the son of the late Alice Ware Miller and Hardy Arnold Miller.
Robert was a carpenter by trade and worked most of his life at Kure Beach. He loved the “laid back” beach lifestyle and the different characters he met. His greatest love was for his family and friends. Even as his health declined he was more concerned with others than himself.
He is survived by two sons, Kenneth Liberty and Kevin Pegg; the mother of his children Janice Rakes; sister Luretta M. Rich; girl friend Paula Renn of Wilmington, N.C. Niece Angel M. Soyars and two  granddaughters Hunter and Ellie Liberty.
In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by a brother, Leroy Miller.
A graveside service was held at Highland Burial Park Thursday September 5, 2013 at 11 a.m. with Pastor Lee Cook officiating.  The family received friends Wednesday September 4, 2013 at Harrelson Funeral Home from 7-8:30 p.m., and at other times were at 94 Bill Smith  Road, Providence.
 Harrelson Funeral Service is assisting the family with arrangements and condolences may be made at
