Lawrence Miller of Fruitvale passed away suddenly and peacefully on August 20, 2014 at the age of 80.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 46 years, Shirley (Underwood), his son Ryan, sisters Edna Bancescu, Elsie Healey, and Gwen Fowler, and by many extended relatives. He was predeceased by his son Adrian in 2011.

Lawrence was born in Hercules, Alberta in 1934 and grew up in Fruitvale. He graduated from UBC in 1958, worked in Calgary for five years, and then returned to Fruitvale where he operated his own accounting business for many years. He valued his many clients and friends, and his family thanks them for their years of loyalty and friendship. He will be sorely missed.
