Richard Hopkins Miller Jr.

Richard Hopkins Miller Jr. of Hingham, MA, a man admired for his unwavering spirit, dedication to family, and professional success, passed away peacefully on April 24th, 2024, at the age of sixty-two. He fought a short but valiant battle with kidney cancer, leaving behind a legacy of love and accomplishment.

Rick was born on January 25th, 1962 in Hartford, CT and was a graduate of Conard High School in West Hartford, CT. He was a proud Boston College Eagle (1984) where he met his wife Jennifer, and was a devoted father to Amanda and Richard.

His storied career in the insurance business began at Industrial Risk Insurers and Alexander & Alexander in New York before flourishing at AON for the past 20 years. Rick’s exceptional leadership at AON, culminating in his role as US Property Leader, was characterized by his rare blend of sharp business acumen and his uncanny ability to forge genuine connections. Never one to seek the spotlight, he used his position to empower others, celebrate their successes and treated everyone with respect, from CEOs to interns.

An avid golfer with a single-digit handicap, Rick found joy, camaraderie and friendship at the Boston Golf Club, his “happy place.” It was there that he enjoyed countless hours in the company of friends that he adored and who loved him beyond measure.

A true outdoorsman, Rick, Jen and their children loved exploring the walking trails near his Hingham, MA home with their beloved dog, where his sibling passions, hiking and birds, could be enjoyed boundlessly. Rick was a Renaissance man – a history buff, an enthusiastic gardener and an accomplished skier.

He is lovingly remembered by his wife of 36 years Jennifer, his wonderful children Amanda and Richard, his Australian Shepherd Ollie, his mother Mary Gilmore Miller, sister Cynthia Miller Aird and her husband Stephen of Old Lyme, CT, and many nieces and nephews. It is with great sadness he says good-bye to his wide circle of friends and colleagues, all who mourn his loss deeply. In the words he often shared, “Keep the Faith.”

A Memorial Mass to celebrate Rick’s life and spirit will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that gifts be made to support the Brigham Cancer Fund/Brigham and Women’s Hospital in memory of Rick Miller and/or the First Tee as a tribute gift in memory of Rick Miller.
