HAUG, Milo April 27, 1933 - January 19, 2021 Milo Engvald Haug went to be with his Lord and Saviour Tuesday, January 19, 2021 at the Outlook & District Health Centre. Milo was born April 27, 1933 on the family farm near Ardath, Sask. He was the youngest of four children born to Marcus & Olga Haug. Milo went to Warminster Public School, then went on to further his education at the Saskatoon Co-operative Technical School. In July of 1950, after graduating with a degree in mechanics, Milo returned home to farm with his Dad & Mom. Uncle Milo was an easy-going farmer who was like a big brother to his nephews. "We spent a good part of our early years hanging around his rickety old shop. He would pick us up for Sunday afternoon arrowhead hunting, winter evening walks up the hill to visit Uncle Julius, fishing for chubs in the Saskatchewan River, building a mini bike for the younger ones and the list goes on and on." He was a great welder always ready to help his neighbours. He also taught the boys how to vertical weld. He could make something out of nothing. Uncle Milo made sure he and Grandma never missed a Birthday party or Christmas with us. We all treasure fond memories of family gatherings in the 'picnic grove'. "He was a cheerful good natured man with never a bad word to say about anyone and walked according to his Lutheran faith". Uncle Milo loved farm life, working the land and caring for his cattle. Uncle Milo loved music and enjoyed playing the violin. He moved to Outlook in the early 70's and continued to farm from there. Milo met and married Helen in 1989. They enjoyed camping, Gospel Jamborees and sightseeing. Milo is lovingly remembered by his sisters, Elenora Goosen and Mabel Raisanen and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his wife, Helen; his parents, Marcus & Olga Haug; his brother, Elvin (June) Haug; brothers-in-law, Marvin Goosen and Raymond Raisanen; niece, Cheryl Lacko; and by nephews, David and Dennis Haug. Many thanks to the staff of the Outlook & District Health Centre for all their love and care given to Milo and thanks to all who shared in Milo's life.
