Clair Gordon Milne "Pa" Our incredible loving husband, father, son, brother, friend and "PRECIOUS PA" is finally at peace today January 21, 2011. Gordie's life long struggle with illness taught us all to live life to the fullest. He was a selfless man who loved sharing his talents with all those who knew him. He was born January 25, 1952 to Clair and Joyce Milne. He married his sweetheart of 40 years Linda Despain Milne, Nov 27, 1970. His proudest accomplishments were his girls, Nicole and Corinne. He left a lifetime of memories and love in the short years he spent with his five grandkids, Daxton, Easton, Dylan, Kynnli and Carson. He owned Milne's Texaco for 20 years and surrounded himself with his love of cars, building his true love "KWIK 56." He was the Tech Director at Bonneville Raceway where he shared his passion for drag racing. He was an accomplished woodworker and leaves behind a legacy of beautiful work. He is survived by his devoted wife and caregiver, Linda, daughters Nicole (Alan) Vollmer and Corinne (Justin) Harryman, mother Joyce Milne, brother Brent (Brenda) Milne, sisters Karen Paris and Jeri (Kevin) Jorgensen, five cherished grandchildren and faithful dog, Stella. Preceded in death by father Clair and loving Golden Retriever, Amigo.
