Clarence Scott Miller Obituary
Clarence Scott Miller, age 88, of Irvine Kentucky died Sunday May 27th, 2018.
Mr. Miller was born August 20, 1929 in Lebanon Junction, Kentucky to Frank and Kettie
Miller. He was preceded in death by his Grandmother, Bettie Miller, Father, Frank Miller,
Mother and Stepfather, Kettie and Emile Emond, and brother Francis Green Miller.
Clarence graduated from Irvine High School in 1947. He met the love of his life, Eva Faye
McGee and they married October 5, 1950. He and Eva lived in Irvine, Kentucky
throughout his life, except during his service in the Marines as a Marine sergeant during
the Korean War from 1950 – 1952 when they were at Camp Pendleton, California,
followed by some time in Dayton Ohio and when he attended the University of Dayton to
study electrical engineering.
Clarence’s family had several local businesses to include providing television cable
service through Irvine Community Television, a local restaurant/high school hangout
known as the Eagles Nest and Miller’s Inc., a coin operated vending business. Clarence
also worked for the State of Kentucky as operations manager for the Mountain Parkway
for a period of time. He continued the coin operated machine business until his
retirement in 1992.
Clarence became captivated by the magic bug at a young age after seeing several great
magicians perform. This inspired a lifelong passion to invent, entertain and build his
own magic. He became a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians in 1948.
In 1989 Clarence served as President of Ring 198 of the International Brotherhood of
Magicians, in Lexington Kentucky. In November 2003 his colleagues presented him with
a beautifully handcrafted wooden wand and case for his dedication and hard work in the
world of magic. In 2009 he received the prestigious Order of Merlin award from the
International Brotherhood of Magicians. In addition to designing and creating numerous
magical illusions, Clarence regularly shared the joy of magic, providing volunteer
performances for children in many settings, and also mentored many young magicians.
After years of making magic, a book “Magic by Miller” was written and published in
November 2015 detailing the life and magic of Clarence. The book was overwhelmingly
recognized by his colleagues, including world famous magician and Kentucky native,
Lance Burton, who wrote the foreword for the book.
Clarence is survived by his wife, Eva of Irvine, his daughter Emily Feeback and her
husband Michael of Maryville, TN, his grandson Ian Feeback, also of Irvine and many
beloved nephews and nieces. Clarence was a member of Church of our Savior Episcopal
Church in Richmond, KY.
As he wished, Clarence was cremated and his ashes will be interred at a later date. A
gathering of family and friends will be held at Lewis-Abner Funeral Home in Irvine KY on
Saturday, June 1 beginning at 11:00 a.m., with memorial service to follow at 1:00 p.m.
with Rev. Dr. Carol Ruthven officiating.
Family suggests donations in Clarence’s memory to Hospice Care Plus of Berea KY, or
Church of our Savior, Richmond KY.
