UPDATE – A Celebration of Life will be held on April 1st 2023 at the Wellington Park Community League Hall at 1:00 pm. The hall is located at 13440 132nd St NW Edmonton, AB.

It is with profound sadness we announce Patrick Milne’s passing on February 15, 2023, at the age of 84 years.

Patrick was a long time member of the International Union of Painters & Allied Trades. Throughout his 62-year career, he held various jobs and positions within the trade and was fortunate to have worked all over Canada. Patrick was the Business Manager of IUPAT Local 177 for several years and was a staunch advocate of the Union. He spent the later years as a field manager for Park Derochie Coatings and was a fiercely loyal employee who was often the first one on site in the morning and the last to leave. (Let’s not forget those ‘meetings’ in the smoke pit)

Patrick was a member of AA and was intensely proud of his (almost) 25 years of sobriety. He was a mentor and a friend to many and will be missed greatly by his brothers and sisters in the program.

He was an inspiration and mentor to so many and we hope that his love for his family and his profession will be his legacy. He will be so sadly missed by all those whose lives were touched by knowing him.

A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.


Patrick Milne
