Gordon was awarded The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal and the Platinum Jubilee Award in recognition of his extraordinary contributions to his community. Gordon loved his family. His grandchildren and great-grandchildren always made him smile. He thought each one was wonderful and “great”. Gordon was proud that he lived on the Miller family farm for over 90 years, and proud to be a lifelong farmer. Gordon loved gardening and spent many happy hours with Audrey in their garden, on his John Deere tractors or gator. The family would like to express special thanks to Dr Strydom, Dr Naidoo and to the staff at St Joseph’s General Hospital for the kind and compassionate care.
