MILLER, ERIC December 3, 1929 - March 30, 2019 Eric slipped peacefully away at home. Beloved and wonderful husband of Ruth Kellermann Miller for almost 57 years. Proud father and father-in-law of Tony and Joanne, John and Robby, and Daniel and Michele. Loving grandfather of Hannah, Ben, Regan and Greer. Eric was born in Montreal to Claire and David Miller. He moved to Toronto in 1956. He had a stellar career in the advertising world, primarily with MacLaren and then with the firm that he and two colleagues started, Miller Myers Bruce. From 1973 to 1977 he took his family to Ottawa where he was Deputy Director General for Information Canada before moving back to Toronto. At OISE he earned his Doctorate of Education in 2001 at the age of 71, an accomplishment of which he was very proud.

Eric was truly one of the good guys. His warm smile, his sense of humour, and his relaxed attitude made working at MMBDHM a pleasure. He brought a twinkle and a sense of fun to our agency (not to mention a sense of style!) In an industry where people often seem transient and expendable, Eric made each person, feel very special. I am so happy to have met up with him at Marty's book reading last year. His distinctive charm and laughter were just as they had always been. Truly a special person.

My years working with Eric from 1984-1988 at his Miller Myers DallaCosta Harrod & Mirlin agency were such happy ones. I have fond memories of his elegance, his genuine warmth, his sense of humour and how much he loved jelly beans. As much as he lived for his weekly stash of them, he never warmed to the black ones, so he always made a point of leaving a small pile of those on my chair every week. This was the start of my career in advertising and it was an honour to watch him grow the agency into the force it became, with so many big names in the industry that were responsible for iconic and revered campaigns. RIP, Eric. You will be missed.
