Maryland Senate President Emeritus Thomas V. Mike Miller died on Friday afternoon, a statement from his family said. He was 78.
Miller “passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by loved ones” at about 4:25 p.m., the statement said.
He was the longest-serving Senate president in Maryland history, stepping down as president in 2019 after 33 years, and resigning from the Senate last month after more than 45.
He had been battling cancer.
