During his brief life, 19-year-old Jeremy Prows Miller of La Habra established a legal landmark and painted landscapes. Both were difficult feats. The landmark came in 1978 when Jeremy's parents used a federal law to win him the right to attend regular school classes even though he had been a quadriplegic since being struck by a car when he was 3. He was the first in California to use the law, which requires "least restrictive access" for the handicapped.

Jeremy Prows Miller, a La Habra paraplegic who won the right to attend public school despite distracting medical equipment, died in the Friendly Hills Regional Medical Center in La Habra after a respirator accident. He was 19. Miller, who died Friday, was found unconscious by his parents Tuesday night after his air hose became disconnected in the family's La Habra home. His mother, Ella Miller, said an alarm failed to warn of the mishap.
