Message from Loyola’s president, Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J.: Celebrating the life of Maryland Senate President Emeritus Miller

Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J., president of Loyola University Maryland, released this statement on the death of Maryland Senate President Emeritus Thomas V. Mike Miller, Jr., on Jan. 15, 2021:

“For decades, the state of Maryland has been shaped by the leadership of Senate President Emeritus Thomas V. Mike Miller, Jr., who has given of himself through distinguished, committed public service. He loved the state of Maryland and had such a deep, deep appreciation for the history of the state. He also loved the Catholic Church, and he enjoyed talking about the important issues of the day. I admired his contributions to our state, but I also enjoyed getting to know him over the years.

At Loyola, we have long thought of Senate President Emeritus Miller as a member of our Loyola family, especially since he and his wife are former Loyola parents. He was certainly fond of Loyola and had a longstanding commitment not just to our university, but also to higher education.

On behalf of Loyola, I extend our deepest sympathy to his wife, Patti, and his children, including his daughter, Amanda, who is a 2000 graduate of Loyola.”

The Senate President Emeritus will be included in the intentions at the 5 p.m. Mass at Loyola University Maryland on Sunday, Jan. 17, 2021.
