WRA/Whitpain Softball, in a heartfelt tribute to the late Centre Square Fire Chief Nelson “Lee” Miller, came together today for a memorable memorial event at Heroes Field within Wentz Run Park.
Chief Miller, a true hero and a cherished member of our community, was known for his unwavering dedication and service. To honor his memory, Whitpain Softball along with members of the Centre Square Fire Department, Whitpain Township leaders, and the Miller family, gathered for the unveiling of a memorial bench at Heroes Field.
The memorial bench, placed overlooking the left field outfield, bears a plaque that reads, “In Memory of Chief Lee Miller, Centre Square Fire Company Chief for 16 years, and a true friend to Whitpain’s youth sports programs.” These words encapsulate Chief Miller’s enduring legacy and his profound impact on our community.
During the ceremony, WRA member Kara Frederick delivered a heartfelt speech and unveiled the plaque on the bench. Shortly thereafter, Chief Miller’s daughter, Courtney, and his grandson, Bodhi, took to the pitcher’s mound to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before a 10U softball game.
The Whitpain Recreation Association is immensely grateful for the support of the Centre Square Fire Department, Whitpain Township leaders, and the Miller family, who made this memorial bench possible.
Chief Lee Miller’s legacy lives on in our hearts, and we are proud to have this memorial bench at Heroes Field as a lasting tribute to his remarkable contributions to our community.
