It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Fred Milley on January 29, 2022 at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre, Blairmore, AB. He was 84 years of age.
Fred was born in Coleman, AB on December 30, 1937 to parents, Amy and Cecil Milley. As a young man, he had the good fortune to not only meet the love of his life, Marilyn Sumanik, but to marry her on February 3, 1962. Over their almost sixty-year marriage, they raised three wonderful children and made countless happy memories.
When he wasn’t busy providing for his family as a Master Electrician, Fred enjoyed a variety of outdoor activities. In the summer he liked going camping, boating and for rides on his motorcycle; in the winter, snowmobiling; and he went fishing, hunting and to rodeos as often as he could. Fred was a talented woodworker, and he loved dogs and horses. Fred’s pride and joy was his family. Whether it be a quick phone call, or a large family gathering, he never missed an opportunity to spend time with them. Fred’s was a life well-lived and he will be forever remembered with love and respect.
Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life is his wife, Marilyn Milley; his children, Mona (Larry) Robutka, Mark (Elaine) Milley and Trevor (Laurie) Milley; his grandchildren, Ryan (Tamara) Robutka, Danielle (Cole) Massaro, Stephanie (Travis) Panisiak, Megan (Derek Murphy) Milley and Darren (Hayley) Milley; his great-grandchildren, Molly Robutka, Lydia Panisiak, Reagan Massaro and Haxstyn Milley; his cousins, Alfie and Marie Anderson; as well as his extended family and many friends.
He was predeceased by his parents, Amy and Cecil Milley.
A private family service will be held at a later date. Donations in memory of Fred will be gratefully accepted by the Alzheimer Society (www.alzheimer.ca). Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
