I remember Wayne Milne, and his whole family, fondly. His Snipe (sailboat) had a beautiful blue hull, a gleaming white deck, and was # 13835 as I recall. My father, Don Holtz, had Snipe # 13836 and was often a link in Wayne Milne's food chain. Along with Bon Hague and Earl Trager, Wayne Milne, (always "Mr. Milne" to me) dominated racing on Birch Lake. His son Dave and beautiful daughter Mary were great sailors too. I remember the little green "Milne dingy, the "steer from the back seat motor boat, and the many great kindness lavished on me and my many siblings by The Milne Family even though we were the folks who moved into Scotty's Pony Ranch and displaced the ponies they must have loved. I always enjoyed watching Wayne get ready to race his Snipe - he was so calm. So sad to hear of the loss of both Wayne and your mother years ago.
PM. William I. Smiley and Bro. Larry Smiley send there condolences To the family.
Dear Mary and all your family. You are all in my prayers at this time. Your Father had made great accomplishments, most of all a loving family. Peace and Love, Vera Epperson
My prayers go out for Wayne and his six children.
I just discovered that the Milne kids and I have the same GGGG grandfather in Abraham Kesler (1769-1837).
I have a family tree of my blood relatives Kesler/Kessler and their spouses/children. I have over 600 Kesler/Kesslers.
When things settle down please contact me at email@example.com and we can discuss ancestry.
Your father is in a new great place.
Dave, Sorry to hear about your loss. If he was any thing like you he had to be a nice man, Bob Zima
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
Dave, Sorry to hear about your dad. Our prayers go out to your family. He led a very full life.
Mike Hillman and family
