It is with sad hearts that the Executive has to announce the passing of our former member, Bob Miller, VE3HNH.
As the sun rose, Bob passed away peacefully on Sunday, August 12, 2018 in his 77th year. Loved and loving father to Jennifer (the late Bob) Harper and David Miller (Lindsy Reid). Godfather to Carol Ann Hayes. Jamie will miss his “Chosen Papa Bob”. Survived by brothers; Walter (Marg) of Mississauga and John (Betty) of Montreal, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his parents John and Evelyn, his twin brother Douglas and sisters; Anne (Al) Farrell and Eleanor (the late Bill) Edmondson. Bob leaves behind many dear friends, especially Dave and Keith.
Bob treasured time spent with his children. He enjoyed “talking” and helping anyone however he could. His faith allowed him to follow God’s footprints. His church family and Bill W. friends guided him through his journey. Past-times were aquariums, photography, amateur radio and gun club.
Born March 1, 1942 in Montreal, he moved to Niagara in 1967, working at Domtar – Thorold office, various management positions at real estate boards in St. Catharines, Hamilton and Oshawa, Niagara Farm Labour Pool, counselling at Detox Centre, physio assistant at Hotel Dieu and the General hospitals, and in retirement “Crossing Guard Bob” at Russell Avenue and George Street.
The family thank the friends that were there for him to the end; Dave, Keith and Joyce, Jim, Will, to mention a few, as well as SCGH for making his final days as comfortable as possible.
Cremation has taken place. A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, August 18, 2018 at 2 p.m. at St. Thomas Anglican Church, 99 Ontario St. St. Catharines. Visitation will be held from 12:30 until the service time. In lieu of flowers, donations made to the St. Thomas Building Fund would be appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to the Hulse & English Funeral Home & Chapel, 75 Church Street, St. Catharines (905-684-6346). Online tributes may be made at www.hulseandenglish.com
