Gregory Owen Miller was born in Detroit, Michigan on November 17th, 1933. Later, his family moved to Rye, New York. In Rye, he lived at 647 Milton Rd, with his mother Ann, her husband William Klingenberg, his older brother Douglas, and his older sister Sally. During the Great Depression, Gregory and his siblings were too young to work, so they all attended school. His mother was the head of the household and worked around the house, while her husband worked as a painter. He graduated middle school from Resurrection School along with twenty-seven other classmates in June of 1947. An active member of his troop, he received a special award from his scoutmaster for winning his Boy Scout Troop 1's point system for the months of March and April in 1945. At the age of 14, he broke his arm and wrist on the Milton playground, leading to an impromptu visit to United Hospital. Gregory graduated from Rye High School in 1951. While at Rye High, he was nicknamed "Flusher," and he participated in V.I.C. Gregory's time at Rye was also defined by an interest in sports as he played Junior High Football and was a member of the school's Sports Club. After he graduated, Gregory Miller enlisted in June, joining the Air Force. Four years later, he was discharged after proudly serving his country during the Korean War.
