Arthur Timothy Miner

It’s with great sadness and deep sorrow that we announce the death of Arthur Timothy Miner. After a courageous battle with cancer he passed on April 13, 2011 at the age of 68. He was born 1 of 17 children to the late Ralph and Catherine Miner, Aug 24, 1942 in Vancouver BC. He married his teen sweetheart and best friend Grace Miner on Sept 6, 1963. This Sept they would have been married for 47 years. He was a long time member of the IBEW Union, where he was a highly skilled Welder and Electrician. He worked construction work, which took him and his family all over BC, out of province to Alberta, Ontario and even across the line to the USA, however, Castlegar BC has been home base for the past 20 years. He was a very hard worker with an extremely strong work ethic. He was a self-proclaimed inventor; he could fix almost anything; and was indispensible on the job. He will be especially remembered for his strong voice and participation in the union. His family was his priority and he was a very good provider. He wasn’t afraid of anything. He built his first home when he was 25 and worked on many others through the years. His love for his wife was deep and passionate as was hers for him. His pride for his children was beaming, and the unconditional love he had for his grandchildren was immense. All he did was for his loved ones. He is survived by his beloved wife Grace Miner, and his three loving children. Dean Miner and his wife Cheryl Speerbrecker-Miner. Dee-Ann Miner-Evans and her husband Bob Evans, and Terri-Lin Miner. Also his grandchildren who cherished him, Mitchell Diesel-Miner, Levi-Ann Miner, Jacob Miner, Gracie lin Miner, and Gabriel Miner-Evans. He will be greatly missed. A Celebration of his life will be held at the Fireside Inn located at 1810 8th Ave Castlegar BC on July 30th at 2pm.
