MILWARD, Herbert E. A. (Bert)
S/Sgt., RCMP, Retired
Passed away suddenly at home in Lombardy, Ontario on Wednesday, July 13, 2016 Herbert E. A. Milward at the age of 83. Beloved husband for over 55 years of Yvonne Milward (nee Smith). Predeceased by his parents Bert and Rose Milward (nee Remple) and sisters Celeste (late Eugene) Fedor and Ruth Evans. Dear brother of Bruce Milward and brother- in-law of J. Mavis McLaughlin. Fondly remembered by his nieces and nephews: Bonnie (Mark) Vine, Cathy McLaughlin, James (Mary) Swansburg, Loretta (Kim) Fedor, Lana (Ward) Fedor, Candace (Dominic) Holden, Kim (Steve) Henrich and Harvey (Susan) Fedor. Bert was born in Moosomin, Saskatchewan on August 26, 1932. He served 35 years with the RCMP in New Brunswick, Regina, Saskatchewan and lastly at Headquarters in Ottawa, Ontario. Following a fulfilling career Bert and Yvonne retired to Otter Lake almost 27 years ago and became actively involved in the community of Lombardy and Holy Trinity Anglican Church where Bert served as Warden as well as on other committees. His quick wit always left you laughing or smiling; he had a kind word to say to everyone and was known by everyone. Bert was also a longtime member of the Merrickville-based band "Swingbridge" and especially enjoyed playing the trumpet or trombone. He will be sadly missed by family and many friends in our community. Family and friends may pay their respects at the Blair & Son Funeral Home, 112 Beckwith St. N., Smiths Falls on Friday, July 15, 2016 from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Funeral service in celebration of Bert's life will take place Saturday, July 16, 2016 at 11 a.m. at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Lombardy. For those who wish, memorial donations may be made to Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Lombardy or the Ottawa Heart Institute.
