Bill Summary

H.R. 4372 designates the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 15 Rochester Street, Bergen, New York, as the “Barry G. Miller Post Office.”

Background

Mr. Barry G. Miller was a first-responder from Bergen, New York, who perished while attending to the medical needs of others. Mr. Miller was a pillar of the Bergen community who devoted his life to public service. His life was devoted to the service of his community, including as a member of the Bergen Volunteer Fire Department for 31 years, including 10 as assistant EMS Chief, before he was tragically killed in the line of duty. He also was the Genesee County Coroner, a member of the Bergen town board and former deputy supervisor for the town of Bergen, New York.[1]

In addition to his many forms of public service, Mr. Miller was also an honorable small business owner and family man. His funeral was attended by hundreds of people from all across the nation who wanted to honor the life of a great man.

According to the bill’s sponsor, “Barry Miller was beloved by all who were lucky enough to meet him. In order to honor his passion for his community and his commitment to helping others, I am glad to introduce legislation renaming the post office in Bergen after Mr. Miller.”[2]
