REMEMBERING A WATER SKIING LEGEND

Photo by Anita Brown Caldwell for Catfish Alley Magazine
Bobby Miller’s home was in Columbus, but his heart was on the water. Miller, a life-long Columbus resident and
1946 graduate of Lee High, died Thursday at age 90. While friends and family knew him in many ways, Miller was
best-known in the community for his love of barefoot water skiing, a sport he took up as a teen. His devotion to
the sport (he quickly acquired the nickname “River Rat”) led him to become a founding member of the Tombigbee
Stump Jumpers,helping inspire generations of skiers. Miller continued his barefoot skiing into his 80s, marking
his birthday each year with a barefoot ski run. He was and remains an inspiration not only to water skiing fans
but to all those who learned from him is that their is no age limit for your passions in life.
