Peter "Greg" Millman
Peter Gregory (Greg) Millman
Age 74, of East River Point, Lunenburg County, died May 8, 2018. Born in Huntington Beach, California in 1944, he was the son of the late Peter Stanley and Ruth E. Millman. Greg was a teacher, guidance counsellor, coach, and tutor for many years in Lunenburg County schools. Greg will be remembered for many things but what he valued most was the family he created with Sally, his wife of 54 years. He will be greatly missed by his beloved children Peter Paul (Joyce), Christian (Michelle), Jennifer (Dennis), Luke, and Bennett (Carol); and cherished grandchildren Jacob, Peter, Lucas, Sarah, Gregory, Annie, Jack, Mariska, Gavin, Will, and Charlotte. Also mourning are sisters Janalee (Al), Margo (Don), Darcia (Ed), Anita (Armand), and their families.Greg had an unabiding love for those who could benefit from his special talents. His boundless energy and generosity helped them realize their potential in academics, athletics, and learning to thrive as human beings. He took time to listen to everyone who needed or wanted to talk, offering a willing ear or words of encouragement and comfort. Greg often said his greatest accomplishment had little to do with him as an individual but was found in the joy he experienced through the positive impact made by his children, his grandchildren, and the students whose lives he was grateful to have touched. Greg’s goal was to be kind, patient, and loving. He led and lived that example in his deeds great and small, without fanfare or expectation of recognition. More often than not, he would deliberately work behind the scene to help ease someone’s situation or plight in quiet and caring ways. Greg leaves behind many legacies in the passions he shared with others. An avid reader, he lined his walls with books which, once read, were never forgotten. Always an athlete, Greg spent many hours running and cycling local roads and trails where he was well-known for his dedication to these pursuits. A gathering to celebrate his life will be held Saturday, May 12, 2018, from 2-4pm at the UNIFOR Association Hall, 7216 Highway 329 in East River. As per Greg’s wishes, donations of time or money to a food bank, or the performing of any other act of kindness, would be appreciated.
