Our deepest condolences to you and your family. Milan will be missed greatly.

From: Allan & Elle Warren

Like so many visitors to the Osoyoos area and the Walnut Beach Hotel, Elle and I were shocked to receive the news that Milan had passed. His outgoing helpfulness and his always smiling face was a credit to all who encountered his presence. Milan was always available and helpful to all of us who were new to the area. When things were questioned, ” Ask Milan…..” was the often used phrase at the Resort. Although I tried deeply to convert him to a “Habs” fan it just didn’t work out. I had great humerous times with that !
Until we meet again, repose en paix mon ami .
