Memorial to be Held for Late Oneonta Mayor

City of Oneonta/ CNY News

A memorial service is being planned for November 2nd for Oneonta’s mayor who apparently committed suicide on October 25.

Grief counselors are being made available at City Hall after news circulated that Mayor Richard Miller Junior was found dead, apparently from a self-inflicted gunshot to the head, on Saturday.

There will be no calling hours but the public memorial service to celebrate Miller’s life and accomplishments will be held Sunday, November 2nd at 4 p.m. at the Foothills Performing Arts Center in Oneonta.

Investigators have said a note was found at Miller’s home but have not released any information on the content of the note.
