William L. "Bud" Miller, a carpenter and longtime Eastern Shore resident, died July 17 of heart failure at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury. The former Odenton resident was 58.

Mr. Miller was born in Baltimore and raised in Odenton. He was a 1967 graduate of Arundel Senior High School and served in the Army as a radio technician in Germany from 1971 to 1973.

Mr. Miller lived in Pocomoke City and Deal before moving to Salisbury, where he was a self-employed carpenter.

An accomplished guitarist, Mr. Miller had played with several bands and enjoyed playing country, Top 40 and pop rock music, family members said.

Mr. Miller was well known for helping others.

"If he heard that someone was in need of something, they got it. He was the kind of guy who'd give you the shirt off his back," said a sister, Sue Ellen Miller Harman of Salisbury.

Mr. Miller, who left his body to the State Anatomy Board, requested that no services be held.

Also surviving are his mother and stepfather, Betty J. and Jimmy Shepherd of Salisbury; two brothers, John Miller of Glen Burnie and Richard L. Miller Sr. of Salisbury; and several nephews and a niece. Another brother, Michael L. Miller, died in 1988.
