Roofing recognition

John Miller Sr., of Auburn, right, received his 50-year membership pin and an engraved membership card from Roofers Local No. 195 and Business Manager Ronald Haney. Miller's sons, John Jr. and Jeffrey, are also members of the union, representing 114 years of roofing experience. John Sr. would often start his days at 2 a.m. milking cows on the family farm, then reporting to work at Kenney Guy Roofing. He finished his roofing career at Diamond Roofing in Syracuse, and continues to farm and cut wood for winter.
