Charlie Miller had a wonderful sense of humour and a love of telling stories. He was an ordinary guy with an extraordinary set of accomplishments. He was a Watford son born to a high school principal and an elementary school teacher who lived his life in the service of education first as an “Aggie” at the University of Guelph and later at his first teaching job where he wooed and won his beloved Evelyn. He served in the Royal Canadian Navy on the Athabaskan and the Haida. He continued his teaching career in Essex County as vice principal at Leamington District Secondary School and Kingsville District High School and principal of Gore Hill Public School. Today generations of former students have benefited from his simple honestly, his fairness and his gentle advice. Privately, he was the goodwill ambassador for kindness and generosity. An expert sailor, skilled curler and golfer whose best clubs were his pencil and his foot. He could coax life into his beautiful flower gardens and spectacular home grown vegetables. Special thanks to the staff at The Leamington Mennonite Home who took care of him and nourished his love of singing, his beautiful smile and his unassailable spirit. He took a lot with him, not the least his ability to help us all find the attainable best in ourselves.
