Robert Miller


Robert Miller

It is with great sadness that we announce that Robert M. Miller of Riverview, NB, died peacefully at the Dr. Georges-L. Dumont University Hospital Centre in the early morning of April 15, 2019, following a lengthy illness. Born in Oxford, NS, he was the son of the late Charles and Cora (Rushton) Miller, both of Oxford, NS.

Robert had a decades-long career as a journalist with The Moncton Times, The Moncton Transcript and, after the merger of the two papers, The Moncton Times-Transcript. He retired from the newspaper in July 1996. He was devoted to family, friends and his beloved Los Angeles Dodgers. He was a lifelong Montreal Canadiens fan.

Robert will be forever in the hearts of his wife, Sharon (Lutes) Miller; his son, Robert; two daughters, Krista (Steve) and Sonia; his daughter-in-law, Wu Jingyan; his three grandchildren, Morgan, Robert, and Brianna; his sister-in-law Jean Cambers; his brother-in-law Brian Cambers; his nephews, Michael (Gail), Jamie (Catherine) and his niece, Denise (Ryan).

Robert was predeceased by his parents, Charles and Cora (Rushton) Miller, and by his mother-in-law, Alice (Fletcher) Lutes.

The family will be receiving relatives and friends at Cobb’s Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 330 Whitepine Road, Riverview (869-2007) on Wednesday, April 17, 2019, from 5-8 pm. A service celebrating Robert’s life will be held on Thursday, April 18, 2019, at 11 am in the funeral home. A reception will follow.
