September 4, 1942 - February 11, 2022

With broken hearts and profound sadness, we announce the passing of Fred Miller on the evening of February 11, 2022.
Over the past few years, he has struggled with advanced dementia.
He was born and raised in Winnipeg, MB. Fred built our home in 1970 in Charleswood, where we resided for 50 years, up until August 2020, then moved to Carman, MB to be close to family.
Fred enjoyed fishing, hunting and was very passionate about taking his grandsons fishing. He enjoyed downhill ski trips with family and friends. Fred enjoyed our trips to Puerto Vallarta and cruises to the Hawaiian Islands and Panama Canal with our dear friends. He enjoyed many camping trips with family. He was a loving husband, father and Papa.
He leaves behind his loving wife of 53 years, Dianne; son Grant (Laura); daughter Jennifer (Corby) and his four grandsons, Owen, Dyllan and twins, Ashton and Brayden; extended family, Doreen Blackman, Shirley Gering, Dennis West and Daxx (Tammy) Natina; special cousin Harvey Speirs of Penticton and one brother Bob (Marilynn) and family. Predeceased by his parents, Phil and Margaret and in-laws, Oliver and Grace Wilcox.
Heartfelt thanks to the Nurses and Healthcare Aids at Carman Memorial Hospital and to the Nurses and Health Care Aids at the Pembina Manitou Health Centre.

Condolences & Memories (11 entries)

  • I found these words that say so much more than I can.... His life was gentle, and the elements so mixed in him that nature might stand up and say to all the world, "This was a man!" Rest In Peace my friend and I will always cherish the memories. - Posted by: Doreen Blackman (Cousin) on: Mar 13, 2022

  • Fred proved to be the best father-in-law ever when he loved fishing as much as I do! On longbow, Fred would bring us to "Freddie's rock" or one of his numerous "Freddie's spot" so we could catch our limits of pickerel. (Even the teenagers at Reddens would pop by to ask which of his spots the fish were biting today!!) My proudest memory was actually at the filleting shack when Fred had said to someone, "come on in and watch my daughter-in-law and I fillet fish. We will show you how pros do it!" LOL (I also took the cheeks and fins for a later treat) Thank you for the wonderful memories. You were truly a loving and accepting man. You will forever be in our hearts and in our memories. - Posted by: Laura (Daughter-in-law ) on: Mar 09, 2022

  • I'm so sorry to hear that Fred passed away. I have wonderful memories of Fred and our lovely cottage neighbors at Brereton Lake. My condolences to the family. - Posted by: Joanne Shute (Family friend - Lake Brereton) on: Mar 01, 2022

  • I actually had recently been sharing with my own 16 yr old son (who is crazy for ice fishing) about how my "Uncle" Fred had taken me on a number of fishing / ice fishing / snowmobile trips when I was 11-13 years old with his son Grant, mostly at Bereton Lake. (Hi Grant - sorry for to hear about your Dad). I recall Fred being a soft-spoken bright man who was patient with us young kids. As I grew older and had children of my own, I developed an even deeper appreciation for him reaching out and providing me the chance to learn about the outdoors (if it wasn't for Fred, I would have missed out on this Canadian fun experience!). My sympathies to the family and sending my best regards and thoughts. Jason Perring - Posted by: Jason Perring (Mothers Cousin / my "Uncle" Fred) on: Feb 28, 2022
