TV Producer F.A. Miller Dies at 79

Furman Alton Miller (F.A.), a production manager and producer on TV series, including “Moonlighting” and “Walker, Texas Ranger,” died Tuesday at the USC/Verdugo Hills hospital from complications associated with multiple sclerosis. He was 79.

Over a period of 33 years, Miller worked on more than 50 TV shows and features, including “Freedom Road,” “The Chisholms,” “Tales From the Crypt,” “Demon Knight,” “House on Haunted Hill” and “The Defenders.”

Born in Mishawaka, Ind., Miller moved with his family to Arizona in the late 1940s. He attended Arizona State College before taking a job at Arizona Public Service and eventually moving to Los Angeles, where he started working at the Hollywood Stage as a stage hand.

He leaves his wife of 55 years, June Buzbee Miller; sons J. David Miller and Darin Miller; and two grandchildren.

A celebration of Miller’s life will be held in the near future.
