Our heartfelt and deepest sympathies to Linda, the girls, Rudy and the entire Milkovic family. We are so sorry to hear of your loss.
‘Shorty’ was a long-time good friend of my dad Rako’s (who loved to visit him for automobile parts and share laughter and stories together). Rako was very fond of Shorty and of each member of the Milkovic family, and often spoke of Shorty and his amazing talents and his very kind heart. Our hearts go out to each and every one of you. You are in our thoughts and prayers during this sad time.
Love, the Milicevic Family (Gordana, Dobrija, Aleks, and spouses Chris and Sarah)

So sorry to hear Shorty has passed away. My sympathy to all the family.
Our sincerest condolences to the Milkovic family. "Shorty", a dedicated dog lover, ready to lend a helping hand and always with a joke to tell. He could weld and fabricate just about anything and had a wealth of mechanical knowledge. May your fond memories help you through this difficult time.
In this sad time, we would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to your family. We are grateful for the opportunity to have known Shorty and will surely miss his warm smile. Peter Riden & family.

Our sincere condolences to the Milkovic Families. I have many memories of "Shorty" from making
a wood splitter to a hitch to move 5th wheel trailers around with a tractor. In later years we spent many hours
sitting in the shop talking politics and tractors. Rest in Peace my Friend.
Our condolences to Linda & family, Rudy & family.
Shorty always managed to fix our equipment problems, He really loved explaining how things worked and over the years he came up with great improvements in the design of some original equipment!
Robert & Silvia
my sympathie to the familly.I know shorty for the last 30 years and just have good souvenirs about our personnal and professionnal experiences . thanks for your tips for repair and sharing your experiences . REST in PEACE my friend!
Shorty was a corner post of the farming community of Vankleek Hill: a master of mechanics, metal, hydraulics, and consolation. He devised attachments of which you could not consider. The John Deere aura hung over the shop as an engine would be coaxed to continue. Milun was a coach and teacher to many young men and to newcomers to keep everything running. He was obliging , entertaining and kind , including to all canines.Our sympathy to all of you in his family. Gord, Adam and Mary
So sorry to read of the passing of Milan. I remember when the family first came to Canada and settled on the Cunning farm "across the road", remember the days at S.S.#9 East Hawkesbury and the Sunday afternoons fishing in the creek at Bernique's with the rest of the kids on the neighbouring farms and the other games. The family taught us all what hard work was and perseverence to succeed. The whole family was an example for everyone in the community. In later years Dad would trust no one else with the farm machinery than the Milkovics. Rest In Peace Milan.
our sincere sympatyto linda the girls and family.shorty was a great friend of Roy.I would call at the shop looking for Roy and Shorty would yell ton femme.I had nice chats with him.
Sincere condolences to the entire Milkovic family on the loss Milun. He was a long time friend of the Higginson family.
Sincere condolences to the family,Shorty was a gentleman and he will be missed.
Growing up uncle Shorty was always at the garage with my father. Always ready to help when needed. Its hard to believe he's really gone...but he's at peace at least.we are a very close family, and we always will be.He will be missed .
Our sincerest condolences to all of you. You are our thoughts and prayers.
Our sincere sympathy to Linda, Tammy, Barbie, Debbie and families on the passing of Milan. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time.
Any time you needed your tractor fixed it was the only place you went. He had such skill. Sorry for your loss.
So sorry Linda, Tammy, Barbie and Debbie to here of Shorty’s passing. He was a great man, and my father would’ve called him one of his best friends. If my father told my mother he was going to Shorty’s, she knew he wouldn’t be home for hours! ❤️
Shorty was my saviour one day long ago whenI drove our old Pontiac into the ditch in front of the grocery store because they had “moved the lane way”. I ran to ask if Shorty could help me. He looked and said, “Holy, I’ll need the tractor for that”. He pulled me out and I drove home with the chassis bent 6”. I have loved him ever since
We would like to offer our condolences to the family. Several of the exchange students we hosted had Shorty for a bus driver. He always asked about them when we saw him.
He helped Jerry fix a lot of things or designed stuff for him.
God bless the family as they mourn his loss.
Sincere condolences to his family. He was our children's bus driver for many years and he was so very kind. Taking time to encourage one who didn't want to go to school and carrying another who fell asleep on his bus. We will remember him. Danielle, Hans Bauer and children.
So sorry to hear this he was such a man of many talent s one of them was listening. His shop was a great place to talk politics to mechanics and everything in between. This man had the vast knowledge to keep with his talents. If he had worked for NASA men would have been on the moon 10 years sooner. You will be missed Shorty
