Patrick Milino

October 18, 1922 - June 2, 2014



With great sorrow we must announce the passing of Patrick Milino, devoted husband and father.  Pat passed away peacefully at home with his family at his side.  He is survived by his loving wife of 70 years, Mary (nee Sutherby) and their 8 beloved children, 17 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren:

David (Neneng), daughters Jacqueline and Monique; Dianna, husband Herb, sons Marty (son Jarrod, daughter Haley), Pat, wife Janelle (daughter Stephanie); Patricia, sons John, Michael, Robert; Suzanne, husband Michael, son Aaron and daughter Suzanne (sons Angus and Jack); Rocky, wife Rocio, sons Rocky Jr and Pat; Tina, husband Pierre, son Jacob and daughter Madeline;  Anna, husband Dennis, sons Oscar and Lewis; Maria, husband John, son David and Amara (daughter Makaela), and son Owen.

He is also survived by his brother Jack, numerous nieces, nephews and cousins in Canada, the USA and Sicily.  He is predeceased by his parents Jack and Mary, sister Mary and brothers Joseph, Pasquale and Salvatore.  His family was his greatest joy!

Pat was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta of Italian immigrant parents.  At eighteen he joined the Royal Canadian Navy during WW II.  He served active duty on Atlantic Service, trained in communications as a Signalman and as a Morse Code Operator. He sailed on numerous trips across the Atlantic on Corvettes and Destroyers convoying the merchant and troop ships to provide protection.  He was then assigned to the home Port of St. John’s as a Signalman at the Port Signal Station that controlled the strategic harbor, situated atop the Newfoundland Hotel.  It was during this time that he met and married the love of his life, Mary.              

Pat was a member of the HMCS Avalon Boxing team.  The team won the inter service championship competition in 1944 and Pat won his welterweight division, was awarded a trophy and medallion.  Pat had a long, successful career as a well-respected building contractor both in Calgary and Duncan.  

The Milino family would like to express their sincere thanks and appreciation to all the people who helped care for Pat in his final days.  Special thanks to Dr. Mark Sanders, Dr. Rob Thompson, VIHA Home Support and Nurses, and LPN's Maria Clements and Karla MacDonald.

After cremation, Mass for the Christian Burial of the dead will be celebrated at St Edward's Catholic Church on Tuesday, June 10, 2014 at 12:30 pm.  Luncheon and interment of ashes to follow.  In lieu of flowers, donations to the Cowichan Hospital Foundation are appreciated.

You will always be in our hearts and never forgotten!  We all love you!

Mr Milino was loving and very funny! He was certainly one of the most memorable people we have ever had the privilege to know. He accomplished many things in his life but the greatest by far was the amazing family that he helped to create. Their love and support for one another is an example to all. He will be greatly missed
