It is with deep sadness that we here memorialize our friend and colleague, Cam Miller. Cam, who joined our firm as an associate in September of 2011, passed away unexpectedly on June 25, following complications associated with leukemia.
Cam was raised in Virginia and attended college at Washington & Lee University, where he met and began dating Katherine Perry of Birmingham. He began law school in Pennsylvania, but, wanting to be nearer Katherine, he transferred to the University of Alabama School of Law, where he excelled.
Though he worked with our firm for only a relatively short time, his impact will be lasting. He brought energy and intellect to every legal matter on which he worked, and he displayed skill and ability as a lawyer well beyond his years. Just as importantly, he exhibited integrity, humility and patience toward everyone with whom he worked. He was unfailingly kind and generous, and was always genial and quick with a smile and a joke.
Cam also touched the lives of many in the Birmingham area through his community involvement. He brought his love of lacrosse – which he had played in college – and civic mindedness to Birmingham, where he coached seventh and eighth graders in the Greater Birmingham Lacrosse League. His fellow coaches admired his enthusiasm for the game and outgoing nature. He was an outstanding role model for the boys on his team.
Cam was a uniquely gifted young man who lived his life joyfully, and who was called home far too soon. To his parents Frank and Alice, to his brother Franklin, to Katherine and the Perry family, and to all who knew and loved him, we extend our deepest sympathies. We will miss him.
