Ronald "Ron" Joseph Miller

May 28, 1964January 10, 2021

It is with profound sadness that the family announces the sudden and unexpected passing of Ron Miller at Lakeridge Health Hospital in Oshawa on Sunday January 10, 2021 in his 56th year. Ron’s size and motorcycle gear made him look intimidating but for those that knew him, knew that he was truly a gentle giant. Humble and kind, he never judged and always looked for the best in others, always providing opportunities for others less fortunate than him. He touched the lives and hearts of everyone he met. If you needed him, he was there. Adoring and loving life partner to Linda for 7 years. Best friend and proud father to R.J (Dawn) and Krystal (Dean). Dear step father to Nikole (Jordan). Adoring grandfather to Faith, Khloe, Jalon and Kyiah. Ron is survived by his loving mother Anna MacKenzie and his sister Fran (Stan) of New Waterford, Nova Scotia as well as his brothers Michael and William of Sydney, Nova Scotia. Ron is also survived by his sister Rita and is predeceased by his cherished brother John (2008). Ron will also be deeply missed by his nephew Vinny, with whom he had a very special bond, along with his many other extended family and friends. Due to Ron’s immense love for animals, donations to the Durham Humane Society would be greatly appreciated in his honour. Due to COVID-19 regulations, there will not be any public services but cremation will follow.

In all honesty I am at a loss for words. Ron always had a big smile and a kind hello for everyone in our family. I will miss hearing his motorcycle cruising down our street. Linda, you are in all of our thoughts.

My Dear Gentle Poppa Bear

I’ve been apart of your family for almost 10 years since I was just a 19 year old kid. You welcomed me with an open heart and excepted just as I was and for that I could never thank you enough you were always someone I can turn to with anything and not have to worry about you judging me or talking my business to anyone. You were the most solid person I’ve ever known and I want to thank you for all of the wonderful memories and conversations. You were truly one in a billion and I have no idea how we are all supposed to go on without you here with us but I know in my heart your soul is still here with your son and I. I promise you I will look after him and have his back through everything that this life will throw at us. I will love and miss you forever Ronnie

Gone but never forgotten until we meet again ❤️

Always your girl

I remember first trying out for my job over 5 years ago. However, it wasn’t the regular cleaning job I was expecting to do... no, I was asked to accompany Ron to a carpet cleaning job with all the machinery. Accepting the request, I got to meet him and we went to the job over an hour car ride away. Immediately he was so welcoming and friendly, gave me all the advice I could need and tried to catch me up to speed on the company. He was such a happy and free soul. We blasted music, sang, joked and had so many laughs at me attempting to use the machines. 5 years later and he still always put a smile on my face with the same goofy presence any time I had the pleasure of seeing him. He always made sure we knew we had his back if we needed him for anything. Gone way to soon, but I know the party is never ending up there for you. Ride on buddy.

I met Ron Many years ago .He was with Beverley and she was running. Maid Mart and Ron was always there when he was needed.I was her bookkeeper and when Ron knew I was in the office he would always greet me with his enduring smile and a coffee & donut for me. We kept in touch over the years .He came up for my husbands funeral as they got along like 2 peas in a pod seeing they were both from down East I did his taxes for years .He just recently helped me & my daughter put in new counter top and sink.When I offered to pay him he wouldn't hear of it .Said he loved me like a MOM . Great guy .He will always hold a very special place in my heart and he will be missed.I am still in shock of his passing .Only the good die young .

Gone too soon.
How could it be that Heaven needed this gentle giant more than all those here on Earth who knew and loved him; especially our dear friend, Beverley.
Our hearts go out to you. ❤️

Ron will forever be a best friend. I can truely say he was one of the most wonderful men I have ever known. He was always there for me and anyone that ever needed a hand. A kind an gentle soul that put others first, always. He will be forever missed and never forgotten. My sincerest condolences go out to all the hearts he touched. I know how hard this is going to be, and I cant begin to understand the pain you all must be feeling. I myself am flabbergasted and cant believe such a wonderful person has been taken away.

When Linda first introduced Ron to us ,we just loved him.He was such a warm happy ,caring person......and they were perfect together.Ron rarely drank ,but he loved a good cup of tea with honey.....he was a self professed “tea granny “......I loved his soft warm down east accent ,and being Irish myself we tossed around similar kitchen expressions and had a good laugh.I will miss him dearly as will my husband Gary.......we did not get nearly enough time together as friends before he left this world .........My deepest condolences to his family and all those who knew and loved him and to my dearest friend Linda.And until we meet again May God hold you in the palm of his hands
