MILLER, Gord (Milty)

November 4, 1947 – February 1, 2011

It is with great sadness and much sorrow that the family of Gord announces his sudden and tragic passing on February 1, 2011

Gord was born in Winnipeg, MB and later moved to Calgary where he met, and enjoyed his perfect life with Kelly. Gord enjoyed a plentiful life working in the promotions field and financial business, meeting some of the greatest people in this world and having a special relationship with everyone he met. Gord’s mere presence in any room would bring out the best in everyone and his generous and giving heart and soul was seen and felt by anyone who was given the opportunity to be in his presence. Gord was a self proclaimed professional golfer and spent any chance he could on the course especially playing in the Elmwood Sewer Tour and S.O.M.A.A. Tours each year. His greatest loves were Kelly; his family; friends; and everyone he worked with at Best Cap Promotions and Legacy Financial. Dad, you will be forever in our hearts and with us always, we love you.

Gord will be lovingly remembered by his wife and best friend Kelly; his children Aaron, Stephen, Ryan (Kami) and Dwayne; his amazing brother Allan (Diane); his grandson Liam and his cousin Suzi.

Gord was predeceased by his mother Marie, his father George, his brother Dave as well as his daughter Jamie.

A Celebration of Gord’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W.) on Monday, February 7, 2011 at 10:30 a.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Gord’s name to the Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre, 303 Forge Road S.E., Calgary, AB T2H 0S9, 403 253 5250, aarc.ab.ca

  2. I was shocked and saddened to learn of Gord’s passing. I have many fond memories of our “adventures” while attending the University of Winnipeg during the early 1970’s where Gord and I were locker partners for a couple of years and participated together in various sports and many social events. Being Elmwood boys, we also shared a passion for lacrosse, competing against each other in the memorable Elmwood Shamrocks vs. St. Boniface Clubs rivalry, as well as playing along side each other on the Manitoba provincial senior men’s team. Gord was a fierce competitor who always gave 100% and could always be counted on to back up his teammates. It was a privilege to have known him. Please accept my deepest condolences.

  12. Dear Kelly,

    I came upon Gord’s picture in the paper. In my twisted sense of reading the obits, I recognized his face and continued reading. I do remember him being kind enough to drive some drunk people home, without hesitation. You are a kind soul as well and you were perfectly matched. Sorry to hear that he has gone on to Heaven ahead of you, but he probably just wants to hold the door open for you, when the time calls. Your old working pal from Safeway, with hugs,
    Rita Murphy

  14. I was shocked and saddened to hear of Gord’s passing. I met Gord through Bestcap a few years ago while ordering apparel for our ski club. I remember a warm and friendly guy who always made sure the coffee was fresh and took the time for small talk too. I’m sure he’ll be missed by all.
    My deepest sympathy to Kelly & Family as well as his Bestcap family.
