Obituary of George William Milne

It is with heavy hearts that we share the passing of our beloved George William Milne, 94, who passed peacefully the evening of Sunday, July 7, 2024. Survived by his loving daughters Linda (Dennis) Smith, Laurie Milne, and dear friend Claire Whitham; grandchildren Jason (Cassandra), Kimberly (Justin), Marlee (Michael) and Mike; and nieces and nephews. George was preceded in death by his wife Shirley Milne, parents Bob and Maybelle Milne, and his sister Barbara Tracey.

George was born in Toronto, Ontario, and met his lovely wife Shirley while out in BC at a church youth group (rumour has it, he pushed her into a snowbank). George spent the majority if his career working for General Motors of Canada and had a love for cars.

A man of principle, honesty, and integrity, George is warmly remembered as a family man who championed his loved one’s passions, always supporting and encouraging those around him and lending a helping hand. He laughed easily with a cheeky grin, was always whistling or humming along to a choir tune or Christmas carol and played a mean hand of cards. Generous with his time and wisdom, George, otherwise known as Papa, was loved dearly and will be deeply missed.
