Gail Miller, wife of the late Larry H. Miller, is owner of the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies and chairman of the organization’s advisory board. Her many accomplishments and civic service include overseeing the Larry H. and Gail Miller Family Foundation, serving on the board of trustees of Salt Lake Community College, and having organized The Rest of the Jazz – a nonprofit group that involved the spouses of Utah Jazz players in charitable work. This past year, she was named The Salt Lake Tribune’s Most Influential Sports Figure in Utah for 2009.
A native of Salt Lake City, Gail was born sixth in a family of five boys and four girls. She attended Horace Mann Junior High School, where she first met her future husband. They dated while attending West High School, and upon graduation, Gail spent several years working for Mountain Bell Telephone Company. After six years of dating, the couple wed on March 25, 1965.
In 1979, Gail and Larry Miller launched their own business with the purchase of Larry H. Miller Toyota in Murray, Utah. From its start as a single-dealership operation, the business has since grown over the past 30 years into one of the largest privately-owned group of companies in the nation, with Gail playing a significant role in its success and development. In addition to the automotive companies, the Miller’s own the NBA Utah Jazz, MiLB AAA Salt Lake Bees, the world-renowned Miller Motorsports Park and many other sports and entertainment properties.
Devoted to her family, Gail enjoys spending time with her five children, 23 grandchildren and one great grandchild. Her hobbies include journaling and crafting. She is also interested in genealogy and promoting healthy lifestyle choices. In addition to focusing on her family, she finds fulfillment in providing civic, church and community service.

"On a cold December morning, I became a stroke statistic. About 45 minutes into my Pilates class, I stepped of a machine called ‘the reformer’ feeling dizzy and quickly discovered that I couldn't stand up straight. By the time the EMT’s arrived my speech made no sense. The only indicators I had of my dire condition were the faces of my loved ones as the ambulance doors clanged shut.
Why did I join Circle of Red? So that this will NEVER happen to you."
"Prevention is the key to living a long healthy life.
As a fitness expert, I’ve made a commitment to teach my clients that getting heart-healthy is more than just following a diet. It’s creating a relationship with food that you know you can stick with for the rest of your life. It’s avoiding the fad diets and choosing foods you love and that will give you the health benefits needed for a healthy heart."
"The heart is life. The heart is love. I Go Red to be proactive in spreading the word on an alarming statistic.
A dear and inspiring friend of mine opened my eyes to heart disease and I admire and respect the way she lives her life. I want to show my growing support in being part of something that all of us need to be aware of and I want to stand behind the strong people that are affected by this."
"As the owner of Whimsy Clothing Stores I hear stories from my clients about their struggles with heart disease and what it has done to their family's and friends.
As the mother of five children, I too need to be involved in this movement to educate and use this knowledge to share with my family, my customers, and my new franchise stores so that they can implement this lifestyle into our daily routine for ourselves, our family's and our communities."
“I was at work on a Saturday when I got a call that my young mother was in the hospital with a heart attack. The Circle of Red funds lifesaving research, similar to what saved my mother’s life.
When my sisters were admitted to the hospital with heart attack like symptoms they were told, “It’s probably just stress.” I was shocked that many physicians do not treat women the same as men. “We still have so much work to do. I Go Red to help women have a voice!”
