Michael Lee Milne
March 6, 1959 – November 12, 2019
Michael Lee Milne died peacefully surrounded by family on November 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 November 12, 2001.
Lee was born on March 6, 1959 at the Royal Inland Hospital. He attended a one room elementary school in Pritchard, BC from age 6-9. He later graduated from Chase Secondary School in 1977. Lee moved to Olds, Alberta in the early 80’s 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 not 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.

Maurice and I (Mary-Lou) Hamoline along with our 4 sons (Anthony, Christopher, Andrew, and Paul) lived down the hill from Lee and his parents in Pritchard. Lee was our very dear friend and our boys referred to him always as their dear Uncle Lee. Maurice and Lee had many wonderful talks and sharings, advice and help with farming and cattle.I did as well. I would cut Lee's hair, and we remember when he found a motorized bike for our son, Anthony. Lee came many a nights for a family dinner, and would play with our boys. We also visited with his mom and dad. We loved him so very very much. Lee was a very loving, kind, helpful , fun loving generous man. He had a heart of gold.❤ We cant say enough about just how wonderful he was. He was part of our family. We were devastated to hear of his passing. Lee has a very special place in our hearts. Our love and prayers to his family and friends. please call Mary Lou 306 240 4439. 🙏❤ Lovingly and Prayerfully Maurice Mary-Lou, Anthony, Christopher, And Paul.

Lee would plow the end of my lane so I could get my vehicle off the road. He will always be "my hero in his shiny red plowtruck". I will never forget you dear friend. Til we meet again.
