The security industry has lost one of the truly great ones: Lockmasters has announced the death of Mark C. Miller.

On Sept. 21, at about 7:05 a.m., Mark lost his battle with esophageal cancer at the age of 57. He was at home, surrounded by family and friends.

Mark was born Jan. 30, 1963, in Rochester, New York. Nicholasville, Kentucky, had been his home for 45 years. He is survived by his wife, Stephanie Buffin Miller; his daughters, Madeline Grae Miller and McKenzie Lane Miller; his sister, Sandra Miller Sheldon; his mother in law, Linda Maynard Brewer; his mother, Erika Mader Miller; and his father, James Clayton Miller. Mark was preceded in death by his grandmother Grey Benson Tate and his grandfather Harry Clayton Miller.

Mark was the owner and operator of Lockmasters Inc. During his 34-year career, Mark was one of the first certified Professional Safe Technicians, Hall of Fame member of the Safe and Vault Technicians Association (SAVTA) and a Philadelphia Award recipient. He established Friends of SAVTA Auction, which raised over $500,000 for SAVTA education.

Mark traveled across the world teaching safe classes. He was truly an ambassador to the security professional industry. High-school and college students always were welcomed during the summer at Lockmasters, where they could learn real-life business and working skills. Mark’s humanity was obvious to his employees and community; he loved to give and help those in need.

He loved to spoil his daughters. He enjoyed traveling and spending time on his houseboat surrounded by his friends and family. He had a love for nice cars and car racing.

Mark was more than a lock expert, and although many knew him for his technical knowledge, most knew him as a fun-loving, good-natured, giving guy who always had a smile on his face.
