TOPEKA, Kan. (May 16, 2005) – Glenn Miller, of Cleveland, Ohio, a longtime Sports Car Club of America member and experienced corner worker, succumbed to injuries after being struck by a car Sunday during an SCCA Driver’s School at Nelson Ledges, a road racing course in Nelson, Ohio.
A continuous member since 1991, Miller, 58, was working as a volunteer member of the Lake Erie flagging and communications crew, an area-based group that serves to communicate course conditions to drivers and race stewards as well as assist in on-track incidents. An Acura driven by Kurt Niemeyer, of Cincinnati, spun, slid in wet grass and struck Miller, who was not behind positive protection at the time.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Glenn’s family and friends,” SCCA President and CEO Steve Johnson said. “It’s always difficult to lose one of our own, but particularly tragic when it is one of our ‘angels in white’—our SCCA corner workers.”
Miller is survived by his wife, Carol, and three children.
Services will be Thursday, May 19 at 11:00 a.m. at Brickman Funeral Home, 21900 Euclid Ave., Euclid, OH (216) 481-5277 .
The family is asking that donations be made to the family in Glenn's name at 1526 Larchmont, Cleveland, OH 44110.
