AMOS HAROLD MILLITAIRE (published on October 07, 2011)



AMOS HAROLD MILLITAIRE Peacefully and surrounded by family, it is with our deepest love that we announce the death of Papa Mickey on Tuesday, October 4, 2011 at the Grace Hospital at the age of 77 years. Remaining to forever cherish Mickey's memory are his daughter, Heather Maxwell (Blaine); sons, Kenny Millitaire (Doris), Everett and Danny; grandchildren, Candace, Jennifer and Justin; great-grandchildren, Thomas, Ocean and Patrick; sister, Bernice Haines whom he loved with all his heart, as well as many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents; brother, Mervin; sisters, June and Kathleen. Mickey's greatest joy always was to be with those he loved. We just celebrated his 77th birthday with many family and friends at Deer Lodge Centre, where he resided these last few months. Times together with family over a large pot of spaghetti were the moments he treasured in reflection when his body slowed him down. Having a passion for life and justice, Mickey could have a political discussion over a cup of coffee at Robins everyday if you were brave enough to engage him. Ever true to his beliefs Mickey voted on the afternoon of his death. At the age of 64, he embarked upon a project to save senior housing on Flora Place in the north end, for which Mickey was awarded a community service award by CEDA in recognition of many hours of devotion which assisted in the successful development of the community. He took part in founding the Night Owls Patrol, where volunteer residents kept eyes open for a safer neighborhood, because Mickey believed Our output depends on resident's input. Funeral Liturgy will be Celebrated on Saturday, October 8, 2011 at 10:45 a.m. in St. Paul the Apostle Roman Catholic Church, 2400 Portage Avenue, with Rev. José Eduardo Medeiros, presiding. Interment will be held at a later date in Carman, MB. Mickey spent a lot of time in hospital these last years, cared for by many exceptional doctors and nurses. Most recently he visited the Grace Hospital where nurse Precious brought him great joy. To the family all the staff were precious, our deepest thanks and respect. Donations of time and money in Mickey's memory may be made in support of healthcare in one's city, or ever greater still....please quit smoking. The presence of your absence is everywhere. Mother Mary pray for us.
