Millar, Craig Hugh

Sadly, Craig, at age 67, passed away in Cranbrook on March 1, 2024, after a brave skirmish with cancer.

He was born in Toronto, raised in Montreal, but chose Western Canada to settle down, marry, and embark on the career he loved.

Family meant the world to him. He was the son of Scottish immigrants, Hugh and Norah Millar, the younger brother of Iain (Margaret) and the cherished uncle of Erin and (late) Brian. Laura McKerrel Millar, his late wife and soul-mate, shared his passion for golf, cementing their bond forever.

A keen interest in all sports led to his love of golf which prompted him to pursue a long and fulfilling career as a golf pro, instructor, and Head Pro.

Craig was interested in everything, especially music and enjoying other cultures as he trekked the world. An early career as a chef carried over into his married life as he and Laura shared many occasions together entertaining with his array of culinary expertise.

His ever-present smile and contagious laugh endeared him to many. All of this resulted in a large circle of friends who have remained loyal throughout his life and supportive through his illness.

The Millar family would like to thank the staff at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital for the excellent care Craig received during his final days. Your professionalism, gentle bedside care and support for the family allowed him to leave us with dignity.

In Craig’s memory, if you smoke, quit.
