Michael "Lee" Milne died peacefully surrounded by family on Nov. 12, 2019, at Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice in Kamloops.
Lee is survived by his mother, Doreen Milne, his siblings, Eddie (Margaret) Milne, Dan Milne and Heather Nymeyer (John), as well as many nephews and nieces.
He is predeceased by his father, Edward Milne who passed away on Nov. 12, 2001.
Lee was born on March 6, 1959, at the Royal Inland Hospital. He attended a one-room elementary school in Pritchard from age 6-9. He later graduated from Chase Secondary School in 1977. Lee moved to Olds, Alta. in the early '80s to study agriculture at Olds College. After graduation, Lee moved back home to Pritchard to work and take over the Milne family farm where he settled in and worked at all his life.
Lee was a kind, warm-hearted, hard-working, witty, and thoughtful son and brother. His family remembers him as the man with a great beard who would always bring laughter and smiles into a room.
At Lee’s request, there will be no service.
A very special thank you to all the staff at the Marjorie Willoughby Hospice, the Royal Inland Hospital and at the Cancer Clinic who went above and beyond for Lee and his family.
