In Memoriam: Arthur (Artie) Miller, 80

At Chase 1965-1987

Arthur (Artie) J. Miller, a more than 20-year veteran of Chase, died on Friday, June 5, 2015 after a lengthy illness. He was 80 and had lived in East Orange, NJ.

Miller worked for The Chase Manhattan Bank from 1965 to 1987 in areas such as Administration Services, Consumer/Retail Products, Corporate Technology, Chase Traveler's Checks and Chase Operations & Systems.

"While many of us traveled to places like Delaware, Rochester and Brooklyn, Artie helped explore the opportunity for businesses in places like Honduras, Iran, Kuwait, Liberia, Venezuela and Nigeria," said a friend and colleague, Kathy MaGaw. "You could use a great many terms to describe Artie, but the words most common expressed as news of his passing spread was big-hearted and well-loved."

From Tony Spota:  I worked closely with Artie Miller for many years. He was a dear friend, both in and outside the Bank. His systems work and gentle leadership were very important on many of our projects in New York and abroad. But perhaps his most important work was with the people, teaching them the ropes, training them in new procedures, helping them succeed as individuals. Some of this was outside the Bank. He and George Scandalios made regular blood donations for my cousin who had been very ill. I will always be grateful for his many trips to the Blood Bank. We also played a great deal of ball together. He was a home run hitter on the field and in my heart. God Bless You, Arthur J. And thanks for all those sweet memories.

From Stan Schrager: Artie was a big-hearted, loud voice, great laugh, caring individual. When I first moved into HR, Artie, Alice Budden and Vincent Sanchez were my first clients. The Group had no manager, so our staff meetings, to say the least, were loud and a great deal of fun, but we did get stuff done. Artie was always there for me, as were Alice and Vinnie, whenever I needed help as I learned from all three. Over the years, whenever I saw Artie he always gave me a big hug, was always welcoming and warm, and always greeted me with his wonderful smile - which I shall miss.  Well wishes to all of Artie's family and friends.

From Rudi and Florence Bogni: I just looked at my emails before going to bed here In  Barcelona (board meetings). I was so deeply saddened to learn about the death of our lovely friend Artie Miller.
    Artie was one of life’s real gentlemen. A generous heart, as big as his body. Florence and I did not see him for many years, but we enjoyed getting his emails and staying in touch.
    We remember having dinner with him in our tiny flat in the Torre Velasca in Milan. He filled just about the whole flat by himself.
    He did not particularly like France, but he was a delightful friend over 40 years to Florence (who is French) and to me. We shall miss him very much
