June 24, 1946 – August 10, 2018
It is with great sadness, and heavy hearts we announce the passing of Miloslav Papanek. Milo passed away the evening of Friday August 10th, only three short months after being diagnosed with cancer.
He is survived by his wife Katerina, and was a loving father to Christopher, Daniel (fiancee Breanne), and Janet (son-in-law Nick), as well as an adoring grandfather to Jordanne. Milo also leaves behind his brother Stefan, sister Jana, cousin Stan, and their families. He was dearly loved by in-laws Jana, Al, Michal, Vaclav, and their families.
Milo was born in Bratislava Slovakia, and immigrated to Canada in 1968 eventually settling in beautiful Montrose, British Columbia. Milo was larger than life, his laugh and smile could light up a room. He loved nothing more than to sit by the river with a line in the water, or to be up in the mountains hunting with close friends, and his boys.
He cherished his countless friendships with co-workers and clients alike and probably would have worked until he was 100 if he could have. One cannot forget how much he enjoyed a glass of scotch or two in the evenings. You were always our rock and we miss you more than words can express.
A Celebration of Life will be held August 18th at 2:00 pm at the Legion Hall, 2141 Columbia Ave, Trail, BC.
