It is with deep sadness the City of Kawartha Lakes announces the death of Councillor Gord Miller. He passed away suddenly on the weekend.

“I was devastated to hear of the passing of Councillor Miller over the weekend. He was a great man and Councillor who was dedicated to serving his community, and he was also my friend. Gord will be greatly missed and I offer my heartfelt condolences to his family and friends,” said Mayor Andy Letham.

Gord served as Councillor for Ward 3 since 2014. He was active on the boards of Kawartha Conservation and Kawartha Lakes Health Care Initiative. As a human resources professional, Gord lent his expertise to the City on human resource matters and his opinion was highly valued. In his spare time, he was the leader of a popular band, Passport, and often played at Concerts in the Park.

Gord had chosen not to re-run in the recent election, noting that he wanted to spend more time with his family.

Deepest sympathies are extended to all of Gord’s family and friends. He will be greatly missed by those who worked alongside him at the City of Kawartha Lakes.

Flags at City Hall will be lowered to half-mast. A condolence book is available at City Hall for those who would like to contribute a written memory or condolence.
