Larry H. Miller
In many ways, the name Larry H. Miller is synonymous with business and professional sports in Utah. Miller was born on April 26, 1944. He attended Salt Lake City public schools, graduating from West High School in 1962.
Over the past several decades, Miller has amassed business holdings that can only be termed an empire. He opened his first car dealership on May 1, 1979, and since then has expanded into many business areas. Miller made perhaps his most famous purchase when he inked the deal to become full owner of the Utah Jazz on June 16, 1986.
Not one to sit idly on the sidelines, Miller is an accomplished sportsman himself. From 1963 to 1970 Miller raced cars, and from 1962 to 1985 he was an outstanding fast-pitch softball player in various leagues.
Over his lifetime, Larry has contributed to a variety of causes and organizations. In November 1995, he formed Larry H. Miller Charities. Since its inception, the foundation has raised more than $1 million, distributing those funds to charitable organizations in the communities where the Larry H. Miller Group does business.
Miller married his high school sweetheart, Karen Gail Saxon, on 25 March 1965, and they have five children: Gregory Scott, Roger Lawrence, Stephen Frank, Karen Rebecca, and Bryan Joseph.
