On Tuesday, May 25th, 2021 Stanley Morton “Marty” Miller, devoted husband, father, and grandfather passed away at age 90, surrounded by his family at home.

Marty was born on January 24th, 1931. He was the beloved son of Sylvia and Herbert Miller. He attended Forest Park High School and then studied and wrestled at the University of Maryland. He left for the Air Force to serve in the Korean War. After he returned, he received his accounting certificate from Johns Hopkins University.

In 1958, Marty met his wife Esther Louise Miller (née Rosenbaum) on a blind date in Cumberland, Maryland. They were engaged a few months later, married, and moved to Baltimore, Maryland where they raised their children.

Starting his career in the family neck-tie business formed his love of sales, travel, and maps. After working at Columbia Records and Dun and Bradstreet, he established his own company. Marty and Louise ran Mercantile Corporation successfully for 25 years.

Marty had a sharp mind and was always up for new adventures. He kept busy reading books, playing the Jumble in the newspaper, and always had word search puzzles on hand. Known to be the first one out on the dance floor for the Tango or Waltz, Marty also loved a challenge. He learned how to scuba dive, build a canoe, and was trained as a locksmith. He loved the outdoors and walked the entire length of the C&O Canal.

People described Marty as humorous, loving, and a friend to humans and animals alike. Marty and Louise raised several rescue dogs that ultimately went from the doghouse to inside the house. They travelled frequently - having visited Ireland, Paris, London and Israel as well as Bermuda and St. Thomas. Above all, Marty was a family man. A few weeks before he passed, Marty shared: “I am the wealthiest man in the world because of my family.”

Marty was preceded in death by wife, Louise Miller, son, Robert Miller, daughter, Julie Miller, grandson, Adam Miller and sister Joan Reisman. He is survived by his children, George (Norma) Miller, John (Cheryl) Miller, and Carrie (Al) Parker, and by grandchildren Laura (Karen) Brown, Anna Miller, Kamber Parker, Alex Parker, and Eli Miller. 

Funeral services are private. For details about visiting the family, please send a message to

In lieu of flowers, make donations in his honor to Greenville Area Parkinson Society, The Sierra Club, or Baltimore Humane Society.

My deepest sympathy to the family of Marty Miller. My daughter Aviva Benson and I had the pleasure of meeting members of the family during Eli’s bar mitzvah. Aviva is a friend of Cheryl and John and that occasion will always be a very warm spot in my heart. I hope sweet memories will ease the pain you’re enduring now.
Warm regards and wishing good health to all, Pat
