Alvery "Al" Raymond Miner was born on January 14, 1936 in Harbor, Oregon. He was raised and educated in Oregon and California. When Al was just 17 years old, he enlisted into the US Marines and served 4 years, from 1953 to 1957, receiving an honorable discharge.
When returning home from the service, Al started driving truck. He became a long haul truck driver and really enjoyed seeing the country.
On August 8, 2008, he married Evelyn Gregg at the courthouse in Twin Falls, Idaho. They made their first home together in Unity, Oregon and then moved to Huntington, Oregon. Al enjoyed fishing, hunting, motorcycle riding and panning gold. His favorite color was blue and he cheered for the Seattle Seahawks.
Al's most enjoyable meal was vegetable skillet. He was always happy, and never knew a stranger. He loved any excuse to go to the restaurants and "talk to everybody." Al also enjoyed his daily coffee time with the locals.
He was preceded in death by his parents, 2 sons and 2 grandchildren.
Al is survived by his wife Evelyn; step-sons Wright (Debbie) Gregg, Fred (Tawna) Gregg and families; step-son Jake; sister Levica Sevey; several grandchildren and great grandchildren
