Gary Edward MILLIGAN

Passed away tragically on September 10, 2016 at the age of 74 after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage.  Survived by his loving wife Ella of 37 years, sons Jerry (Sherry) of Medicine Hat, AB and Shane (Lisa) of Kelowna, BC, 5 grandchildren Richard, Lindsey, Stephen, Grace and Sophie, 2 great grandchildren, 6 sisters and 6 brothers. Predeceased by his parents Ray and Vi, brothers David and Glen and sister Marg. Gary was born in Carrot River, SK on February 9, 1942.  He moved to Kelowna in 1969 and was so proud to live here.  Gary was a kind and gentle soul who loved to help people and tell you stories.  He owned and operated Milligan Auto Body for almost 30 years and unfortunately suffered several health issues immediately after selling the shop; however, due to his determined mind and never giving up, he overcame these medical problems, including kidney disease by receiving a very successful kidney transplant in 2014 which he was so grateful for.

We would like to thank all the doctors and nurses at KGH ICU for trying so hard to bring Gary back to us and for all the compassion and caring.
