Benny Miller was born July 26, 1924 in Kerrobert, Saskatchewan. He was one of the many blessings to his parents, Ignatz and Magdalena Miller, along with his eleven siblings.
Benny lived most of his young life on the farm learning various trades and skills. He was extremely hard-working, dedicated, and family-oriented. These strong attributes would later become the foundation upon which he built his own family.
As fate would have it, Benny met Lois Flemming on July 1, 1943 at the Provost Fairgrounds. They dated off and on, fell in love and married on Oct 22, 1947. They celebrated 52 years of marriage and welcomed eleven children together before Lois’ passing in 2000.
He passed away on October 26, 2020 at the Provost Health Centre – Long Term Care at the age of 96 years.
