DAVID PARK MILLER Peacefully on December 19, 2003 our beloved Dad and Grandpa passed away at age 87 with his family at his side at Selkirk and District General Hospital. Dad is survived by two daughters, Carol (Harold) Wasnie and Linda (Allan) Foreman and their families, Sherri-Lynn, Luis and Miguel Leitao; Dana and Bruce Sirrell; Dustin and Peter Boileau; Taryn Foreman. He was predeceased by his wife Christine in 1988. Dad was born in Wapella, SK, August 1916 and served overseas in the Second World War. He spent his working years with Manitoba Pool Elevator until his retirement. He worked in several Manitoba small towns until moving to Selkirk with his family in 1956. Dad was a valued member of Selkirk Fire Department for many years. Dad and Mom were fortunate to share many great vacations together. Dad enjoyed curling and hunting. Dad was an active member of the Selkirk United Church until the time of his death. Dad made several lasting friendships and valued their times together.

If friends so desire, donations in lieu of flowers can be made in Dads memory to Selkirk United Church, 202 McLean Ave., Selkirk, MB R1A 0T6. At Eventide I want to know, when the day is done, That life has been worth living. That I have brought somebody joy, Through kind, unselfish giving. I want to feel when evening falls, And shadows quickly lengthen That I have made somebody glad, Some weakness I have strengthened. I want to know, that come what may Ive left some cheer and gladness, I want to know, that on my way Ive banished someones sadness. I want to feel, at close of day That someones cares were lighter, Because of kindness I have done May someones life be brighter. - Raymond Orner Gilbart Funeral Home Selkirk in care of arrangements.
