Following his education, he enlisted in the United States Air Force and was stationed at Minot AFB as a missile specialist, where he met and married Carol Mehlhoff. After his honorable discharge from the Air Force, he lived in North Dakota and Texas, working as a carpenter.
He moved to Newtown in 1990, where he worked for Pitney Bowes for 18 years.
Mr Miner was an avid New Orleans Saints fan. He loved the outdoors and spent time during the summer with family and friends at the pool. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was a real prankster.
