The 55-year-old Blackwater miner was killed in a tragic motorbike accident on Ardurad Rd on his way home from work at the BMA North mine site on Saturday night.

All relatives and friends of Mr Miller are respectfully invited to attend the funeral service.

A funeral notice on a tribute page for Mr Miller said the family requested an early arrival for the creation of an honour guard before the service.
