Les Miller, who served as manager of operations and facilities in McMaster’s Athletics & Recreation department from 1988 to 2007, has died.

Miller was responsible for overseeing a number of national championships hosted at the University. His legacy includes playing an integral part in providing McMaster with state-of-the-art athletics facilities.

He also led multiple renovation projects in the Ivor Wynne Centre, including the Burridge Gym bleachers, Rose Hill Dance Studio and the sport medicine clinic.

He was inducted into McMaster’s sports Hall of Fame this spring in the builder category.
