Statement from President Samuelson on the passing of Larry H. Miller

Several years ago, Larry Miller told a group of BYU students that "Entrepreneurs have the responsibility to be involved in the community and to be willing to invest their time, talents and energy." He explained, "We must understand the big picture and what is our role and obligation."

Few people have exemplified those words as well as Larry H. Miller. At BYU we have benefited enormously from Larry's interest in and support of the University, as well as his financial contributions. We are grateful to have the Miller name prominently displayed on our campus at Miller Park, which houses our baseball and softball facilities.

Larry and Gail Miller have made many sacrifices to further education and athletics at BYU. Some may know that Larry in his "spare" time helped teach a business course at BYU's Marriott School of Management. It was, not surprisingly, extremely popular.

Knowing how Larry is loved on the BYU campus, our thoughts and our prayers go to Gail and the Miller family at this tender time. We want them to know that their husband and father left a legacy at BYU and that his generous gifts--particularly of his time and talents--will live on forever.

President Cecil O. Samuelson
