In Memory

Gordon Miller - Class Of 1966

 It is with sadness that I report the loss of Gordon Miller (Class of 1966.)  His sister and my friend, Libby wrote me and gave me this info:

My older brother,Gordon Miller passed away on12/13/2013 at 10/30am.  I was there at his side to the end. I will miss him every day of my life, but know it was time for him to go. He fought his disease with so much courage, lived much longer than anyone ever predicted. His family and friends are all so sad, but glad that he is no longer suffering.

 Gordon would not want a big service. We are having a small wake at my daughter’s home at 1pm, next Saturday the 20th.  If anyone wants to come they can email me

Gordon in Spirit has come home to the ‘Halls of Valhalla.’ Where he joins all the others who have preceded him, he will always be remembered with bigger than life smile and loved by many from MoVal and the community… Lest we forget!

This was another sad update to hear on our long road through life. Our class of 66 and the MoVal HS in general was small enough in those days if we did not know the person we surely knew one of their relatives. As such we all seemed like family in those days.

My recall of talking with you Gordon back in those days was always pretty much the same. Whether our conversations were general, comical, or serious in nature you had the knack of having us both leaving laughing at the top of our lungs. It was who you were and how you made us all feel so good during any conversation.

I'm sorry to hear of Gordon's passing. I hope his family and all his friends find solace in the memories we have of our time with him. God bless him and hold him in the palm of his hand.  Carolyn

I am so sorry to hear of Gordy's passing.  Please accept my sincere condolences to his family and friends. Gordon was a very good friend of mine in school.  We spent a lot of time togrther both in and out of school.  I had dinner at his house, several times in fact, and went fishing with him and his dad at Hemet Lake a couple times.  I am so sorry that we never got to reconnect but as we all know; it's never by choice.   Gordy my friend, you are missed

Gordon, you were the big brother of my best friend.  I would peek at you from beneath lashes when you would come into the Miller house from a game or from being with the guys.  You were funny and smart and I  was so glad to get to see you again five years ago when you were still  healthy and as handsome as ever.  This is awful,  I will miss you like crazy and I am sorry we never got that golf game we promised one another.  Love you for always, like you forever.

Gordon and I worked together during our school years and after we both returned from serving our Country.  Gordon was always a pleasure to work with and be around.  He always had something good to say, even if the situation was not so great.  I feel blessed to have known Gordon.  As all of us who had the pleasure of knowing Gordon, he will be greatly missed.  Our condolences go out to the Miller Family for the loss of such a wonderful human being.

Do Not Ask Me to Remember
Do not ask me to remember,
Don’t try to make me understand,
Let me rest and know you’re with me,
Kiss my cheek and hold my hand.
I’m confused beyond your concept,
I am sad and sick and lost.
All I know is that I need you
To be with me at all cost.
Do not lose your patience with me,
Do not scold or curse or cry.
I can’t help the way I’m acting,
Can’t be different though I try.
Just remember that I need you,
That the best of me is gone,
Please don’t fail to stand beside me,
Love me ’til my life is done.
- Owen Darnell
