Paul Bruce Milne
June 21, 1946 - October 19, 2021
MILNE, Paul Bruce – Passed away peacefully surrounded by his wife and children by his side, at the Parkwood Institute, on Tuesday, October 19, 2021, at the age of 75. Loving husband of Judy (nee Callan) for over 51 years. Paul raised 3 amazing and supportive children in London: Kim (Tony) Brinovec of Midland, Chris (Carrie) Milne of London, and Carolyn (Jason) Lawrence of Port Elgin. Papa to 8 loving grandchildren: Jake, Ellea, Chad, Noah, Grace, Zack, Eve, and Kate. He adored his grandchildren and they equally adored him. He was a big kid at heart – always ready with a joke, a gumball, or some fun game to entertain them and make them laugh. Family was everything to him! Paul is survived by his sister Daphne (Don) Petrie, as well as his brothers-in-law Dennis (Lillian) Callan and Peter (Sharon) Callan. Paul will forever remain in the hearts of his nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.
Paul was born in London, Ontario, 9 months after his father arrived home from serving in WWII overseas. Paul worked for over 30 years as an accountant for the Federal Government. He loved the outdoors; biking, golf, fishing, and baseball. He could always be found either cheering on his kids or grandkids playing sports or watching sports on T.V. He was the Leaf’s #1 fan – his wish was to see the Leaf’s win the Stanley Cup one day.
Cremation has taken place. A family Celebration of Paul’s Life was conducted on Thursday, October 21, 2021.

SO many fond memories of good times shared on Cottonwood Crescent. I remember Paul always out in the street throwing a ball back and forth with Chris, or swimming in the pool with the girls. Barbeques when we would take the fencing down between our properties, dance parties in the basement -- Paul was in the centre of it all. Always a smile on his face, and loved a good laugh. A great neighbour and great friend, who we lost much too soon. Our deepest condolences to Judy, Kim, Chris and Carolyn and their families. As the notice said, you Dad was all about family -- and in that, he leaves a remarkable legacy. Michelle Campbell & Steve Garrison

Hi Judy and family. We were saddened to hear of Paul's passing. A flood of memories immediately brought us back to our kids baseball games and tournaments. Especially the parents after-game parties! In fact some during the games! Of course Paul, the gentlemen he was, never partied with us. (Your welcome Paul). Now we go to our grandkids games. Those parents are not near the partiers. We will be thinking of you all, Judy, Kim, Chris and Carolyn. The pain will subside, the memories will last forever.... Greg and Geri Harness
Judy, Kim, Chris, and Carolyn So sad to read the obituaries in today's paper and see Paul's name. Many memories of Paul came immediately to mind All of the games of baseball and golf and the family get togethers afterwards will always be with us. Paul asked his baseball buddies to shingle his house. I was working with Paul on the roof and I heard a crash. I turned around and all I could see was Paul's head and arms. He had gone through the roof. He then started to laugh and we all joined in. Paul was truly a good friend, proud of his family, and a good person to be around Our thoughts are with you Judy and your family at this time. Paul will truly be missed by everyone who knew him Larry and Corinne Neilans
