We Remember

MILLER, Hubert George Norman “Norm”

December 21, 1936 — February 1, 2024

The family of Norman Miller is sad to announce his passing. Norm was born in Vancouver, British Columbia on December 21, 1936 to parents Clara and Eric. He worked in Construction. Building the roads that we all drive on today. When driving, he would sometimes tell of his adventures of his work on particular roads.

Norm was very fond of camping. For many years, it was as if he couldn’t wait for it to be warm enough to take the truck and trailer to a campsite and crack open a good novel by the fire. He would let his family know where he and Irene would be camping and invite anyone to come out to the campsite. He was especially fond of having a hot dog over the fire and would go for Weenie roasts even when camping season was over.

 Norm and Irene always loved to have visitors: family, friends, neighbours. They would like to have company and visits often. They were never stingy with their time. Always opening their home and hearts to their guests.

A food lover (especially Whopper Wednesdays), Norm enjoyed many meals with his family. You always knew if he was really enjoying himself because he would tell you the meal was “Mean, ugly, and miserable”. You could worry if he said the meal was fine. 

Proud of his Scottish heritage, Norm was probably enamoured with the stories his mother would tell him about her life back in Scotland. He liked to have his Kilt nearby and would often be found singing “Loch Lomond” in the car or around the house.

Stories delighted Norm, whether it was a movie, book, or a grandchild’s adventure. He would regularly say “tell me a story”, and expect you to be ready to deliver one to him. He listened well, teased often, and cried with you when needed. 

Norm would tease Irene and sing the song “why don’t you love me like you used to do” and his voice would gradually get sillier as the song went on. His eyes would sparkle when teasing his beloved and his family. 

Norm will be missed by his children, Allan (Lori), Russel (Dawn), Sally (Mike); grandchildren, Cherri (Curtis), Jonathan, Nathan, Justin (Jessica), Kaitlynn (Graeme); and 7 great-grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews; and a large extended family. 

The family would like to thank the team at Springvalley Care Centre for their care and love of Norm. It made a world of difference.

Memorial donations may be sent to the local food bank: Central Okanagan Food Bank.
