LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Paul E. Miller, the founder of Lexington's Paul Miller Ford, has passed away at the age of 92.
Miller's grandson, J.P. Miller Jr., said his grandfather will be dearly missed by everyone who had the opportunity to know him.
Miller grew up loving sales of any sort, and recognized his talents at the age of 14 when he started selling newspapers on a street corner in Charleston, West Virginia.
After he served in World War II, he started selling cars for a Charleston dealership owned by a man with several other Ford lots in the region. After climbing the ranks, he got the approval to open a lot in Lexington in 1953 and became its president and general manager.
About a decade later, Miller opened the current location of Paul Miller Ford after it outgrew it's original spot.
Even after his retirement, Miller continued to stop by the dealership to talk to his employees about sales and chat with customers.
Information regarding the services will become available at a later time.
