After serving in World War II, Miller sold cars for a Charleston dealership and quickly moved to management positions.In 1953, he got the nod to help open one in Lexington, and he became president and general manager. Grandson J.P. Miller Jr., Paul Miller Autogroup President and General Manager, said, “We date the beginning of the dealership to the time my grandfather came to Lexington." Two years later, Miller bought the owner’s share of the dealership at 255 East Main Street and changed its name to Paul Miller Ford. The business grew too large for the Main Street location over the next decade and Miller purchased six acres at 975 New Circle Road, near the Winchester Road intersection. Lexington architect Helm Roberts designed the building and its unusual roofline. Information about funeral services and memorials will be posted as they become available.
