Obituary for Richard Alexander Miller

It is with profound sadness that the family of Richard A Miller, age 72, regrets to announce his passing on Thursday April 8th from complications of cancer. Richard spent most of his life battling this awful disease, fighting fearlessly until the end.

Richard was born in Red Lake Ontario, but grew up in Thunder Bay Ontario, with his sisters and mother. Richard, also known as Rick or Ricky, was such a thoughtful, caring and giving man, always willing to stop whatever he was doing to help someone else. Richard was an amazing father, constantly worrying about his children and grandchildren, as he held them all close to his heart.

He spent his life working at Abitibi Price/Provincial Papers as an electrician. Richard also worked for Flint Energy in Fort McMurray for 10 years after leaving the mill. In his spare time, Richard enjoyed building and fixing anything he could and spending time with friends and family.

Richard enjoyed taking his children on RV adventures and fishing trips, exploring new places and creating a lifetime of memories across Canada and the United States. His cabin on Whitefish Lake was where he spent most weekends with his friends and family, eventually building his dream home on the property.

Richard was pre-deceased by his mother Nellie, sister Shirley, sister Rose, niece Krissy and the love of his life, his late wife Marilyn Miller. Richard met a second love, Linda (Nordstrom). They had each other through Covid and had many goals and dreams to conquer together, but sadly time was not on their side. Linda stuck with him until the very end, holding on to the hope that they could have more time together.

Richard is survived by his sisters Carol and Sandy, his daughters; Shelley (William Gross), Tara (Bill Britt), Mellissa (Darryl Krystalovich) and his grandchildren Hailey, Jordan, Madison, Emma, Mason, Athena, Raiden, Riley and Phoenix, as well as his great grandson, Hunter.

Due to restrictions, a celebration of life will be held at a later date. The family wishes to thank everyone who reached out and helped with this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you donate to a charity of your choice.
