SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Family members say Roger Miller, the son of the late Utah Jazz owner Larry H. Miller, has died.

Relatives issued a statement calling Roger Miller "a gentle soul" who worked in the family business for 28 years. He died Sunday at age 45.

The statement did not detail the circumstances of his death.

Roger Miller was married to Cheri Light Miller and had five daughters, four sons and three grandchildren. Family members say he enjoyed racing cars, camping, riding ATVs, scuba diving and skiing.

Beyond the basketball team, the Miller family owns car dealerships, movie theaters and a host of other businesses.

Plans for a memorial aren't yet finalized.
