PERCY MILLER

Percy Edson Miller went to be with his Lord Jesus Christ, September 20, 2010. Percy was born in Castor Alberta, April 29, 1920. His family moved to Princeton and then to Summerland where he has lived the last 82 years. He also met his beloved wife Dorothy here at Summerland Baptist Church. Percy worked for Boeing Aircraft for a short time during the war. He returned to be co-owner with his father of Miller & Son Orchards in Trout Creek. He was not afraid of long hours and hard work and even though it was a mixed fruit farm, he was known for his mouth watering peaches. His neighbours could always count on him to prune a tree or plow a driveway as needed. As a young boy, Percy put his faith in Jesus Christ and that was what shaped his values and the course of his life. He served on many Church boards over the years and was an active member of BC Tree Fruits. His love of music was evident up to the last days of his life. One of Percy’s delights was when he was surrounded by his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Percy also gave generously of his time and resources to kids bible camps, mission groups, bible schools and his local church. Survived by his wife of 65 years, Dorothy; two sons, George (Marjorie) and Fred; four daughters, Darlene (Mac) Butler, Barbara (Ed) Damour, Patricia Manke and Sue (Gary) Demerse; 12 grandchildren; 15 great grandchildren; also many extended family. Predeceased by his parents Edson and Nellie Miller, brother Raymond Miller and sister Isabel Halvorson. Funeral Service was held at Summerland Baptist Church, 10318 Elliott Street, Summerland, BC, on Monday, September 27, 2010 at 1:00 p.m. with Pastor Larry Schram officiating.
