Milo (Milos) Baranic Obituary
Milo (Milos) Baranic

It is with great sadness that Bob Baranic and Winnie Griffith and families announce the passing of their loving father, father-in-law, grandfather and great-grandfather, Milo (Milos) Baranic. He passed away October 14, 2013 with his children and his long time caregiver/guardian angel, Elizabeth at his side. Milo would have turned 93 on October 15, 2013. He was preceded in death by his wife, Smilya and parents, Bozo and Eva Baranic. Milo was born in Molat, Yugoslavia. At the age of 2, his family moved to Hoquiam, Washington and later his family moved to San Pedro. He attended San Pedro High School and upon graduation, joined the United States Coast Guard during WWII. He was stationed on a troop transport carrier, moving troops around the world, even some local San Pedrans. Upon his return to civilian life, he became a commercial fisherman, alongside his father with other Yugoslavians. He later went to work at the Long Beach Naval Shipyard and retired 33 years ago at the young age of 60. Milo was a very simple man and just enjoyed sitting in his recliner, watching all sports, his favorite being basketball (San Antonio Spurs and Lakers) and Horseracing. Up to his final evening, he was enjoying listening to the horse races, smiling when "My Sonny Boy" the long shot won. He is survived by his son, Robert (Phyllis) Baranic; daughters, Winnie (Allen) Griffith and Evelyn (Paul) Tanenbaum. Also left to carry on his legacy are his six grandchildren, Michael, Brian (Taunya), Patrick (Melissa) Baranic, Joshua and Breanne Griffith, Melissa Ravelo. Eight great-grandchildren, Bobby, Sophia, Grace, Makayla, Madison, Benjamin Baranic and Nathan and Alexis Ravelo. Bob and Winnie and families will have a private prayer service in honor of their father at a later date. Thank you to all that have shown love and compassion to our Dad and our Families.
