Roger Miller of Minnetonka Travel Passes Away

We just got the very sad news that Roger Miller, CEO of Minnetonka Travel in Wayzata, MN, has passed away.

We featured Roger on our June 2011 cover of Luxury Travel Advisor. He was a great joy to speak with. His love for life, his family, and all things travel were apparent in every sentence he uttered. Writing his story was sheer joy as we sorted through our notes that relayed his love for Austria and Switzerland, and the lovely town of Wayzata, where he lived. He thought it was wonderfully scenic and charming and he loved his travel advisors and neighbors so. He often invited us to come visit him there… we never had the chance.

Roger was also a great fan of his consortia, Vacation.com, of which he was a board member. He was deeply involved with sharing his knowledge with other Vacation.com members and often flew around the country to visit with them. He was also tremendously loyal to Luxury Travel Advisor. After he was featured on the cover, he became part of our family and showed extremely strong enthusiasm in attending our events and participating in our advisory boards.

Roger Alan Miller was 69 years old. We are so sorry to lose our good friend.
