My grandfather Robert Miller.
I was born in Seattle in 1966 as Von Robert Miller. A little after my first birthday my father Gary Miller was killed by a drunk driver in a head on collision. And my mother found herself a widower with five children. A few years later she married another gentleman by the name of Don Glitschka, who adopted all of us and my last named changed to Glitschka. (This is the only dad I’ve known and I love him a lot!)
This past summer I was contacted by a cousin I never knew I had. His name is Bruce Miller. He’s the son of my dads brother Mordy. Our families were able to meet up and I got to ask a lot of questions I’ve never been able too. One of the things I learned from this meet up concerned my grandfather Robert Miller. My middle name came from him and it turns out he was also a musician as well.
No one had a picture of my grandfather I could use for this post, so I took some artistic license and created the above illustration.
