He was predeceased by his parents Alexander Millar and Fern Anna (Rideout); and his sons Tom & Bob. He is survived by his loving wife of 29 years - Colleen; his children Noreen, Don, Russell, Laurel, Calvin & Cathy; 13 grandchildren & 4 great grandchildren. He worked for 37 years with BC Tel & enjoyed a wonderful retirement.
