EARL J. MILLER Jr. November 5, 1941-May 9, 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Earl James Miller, Jr.. Earl passed away at Trillium Hospital on May 9th, 2020 in Mississauga, Ontario at the age of 78. Earl was born on November 5th, 1941 in Toronto, Ontario to his parents, Earl, Sr., and Helen Miller. Earl, Jr. was married to his beloved wife of 58 years, Sharon. Earl was the loving father to his three children: Ron(Kim), Terry(Jon), and Debbie(Randy). Cherished grandfather to his nine grandchildren: Bon(Kim), Kailey(Trey), Chanelle(Alex), Michael(Abby), Chelsey, Jacob, Luke, Cody, and Mackenzie. Adored great-grandfather to his eight great-grandchildren: Jaylin, Aaliyah, Liam, Amina, Jackson, Dylan, Tajari, and Peyton. Earl was blessed to be accompanied by his faithful and dedicated guide dogs, Gilda(predeceased), and Havi. Earl was also survived by his sisters, brother, father and mother-in-law(both predeceased), brothers and sisters-in-law, and many nieces, nephews, friends and neighbors.
Earl was always ready to entertain with a tale from his childhood, or a story about his love of fast cars and his many sports, specifically, golf, hockey and fishing. In his earlier years, Earl was an avid golfer. He especially loved to play golf, with competitive players, not only because he loved the competition but also the thrill of the win! In his later years and while his eyesight may have been diminished, his love of the sport did not. Many days and nights were spent critiquing this sport that he grew to adore. Amazingly, he could advise you about your swing solely based on the sound of the contact made to the golf ball.
Earl was a great son, husband, uncle, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. His sense of humor, positive attitude, laughter and some of his dance moves, that we all grew to love, will be dearly missed.
On behalf of his entire family, we send our heartfelt and special thank you to all of Earl’s nurses and doctors at Trillium Hospital (2nd floor, Cardiology), Mississauga, Ontario. We would also like to thank Earl’s home health staff and the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind.
In lieu of flowers, those wishing to make a donation in memory of Earl, are asked to consider the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind, located in Manotick, Ontario.
Cremation has taken place. At Earl’s request, his ashes will be scattered.
Due to COVID restrictions, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
