MAPLEWOOD, NJ - The first annual Robert J. Miller Oysterfest was Saturday, September 19, at The Woodland in Maplewood. The event honored the life of Maplewoodian Bob Miller, with event goers and organizers having a "grande ole time" while also raising awareness for melanoma.

The Robert J. Miller Oysterfest had plenty of food and refreshments, live music, kids activities, and free melanoma screenings, all to benefit the Melanoma Research Foundation.

Bob Miller was a proud Maplewood resident for more than a decade. He lived near the heart of town, where he and his wife Grace were raising their four young girls. He was a world-class architect who had just started his own architecture firm in New York City after years of working with some of the biggest names in the field, including Robert Stern and Michael Graves. A key focus of his practice was renovating the historic homes of Maplewood and the surrounding areas.

Tragically, at 45, Bob was diagnosed with melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer. Despite a courageous 2-year battle, Bob passed away in March of 2014. Melanoma is growing at a rate faster than any other cancer, including an eight-fold increase in women over the last 40 years. Melanoma is deadly – but it can be very curable if detected early.

Grace, Bob’s wife, reflects, "The girls and I are so proud to be remembering Bob and raising awareness for melanoma right here in the center of Maplewood ... A town he loved so much and a community he was so happy to call home.”

Oysterfest was sponsored by Seton Hall University, St. James’s Gate, Keller Williams Midtown Direct, Far Brook School, Maplewood Rotary Club, Coda Kitchen & Bar, Anthony Garubo Salon & Day Spa, and The Mulvihill Family.
