George Milton Scales
October 4, 1930 – January 7, 2016
It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of our beloved husband / father / grandfather / uncle / brother / friend. He leaves behind his loving wife of 63 years Joyce, his 5 children, Jim (Sheree), Pat (Gerry), Lissa (Dave), Charlene (Tom) & Penny (Bill), 15 grandchildren, 38 great grandchildren, and 1 great-great grandchild, along with his brother Jim Scales and sister Alice Kolisnyk, and numerous loving nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Wesley and Elizabeth Scales, two sisters Dorothy Lyon & Willa Deans and his brother Syd Scales.
Born and raised in Morden Manitoba, Milt moved out west as a young man and enjoyed a 37 year career with the CPR. He was a dedicated family man and an active volunteer in the communities where he lived. He lived his life with pride in all that he did… with love, respect and dedication for his wife and family, his friends and community, as well as his career. His happy welcoming smile was his own unique trademark in life and will be missed by all. Milt will live in our hearts forever, never to be forgotten.
The family is planning a celebration of his life on May 7, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. in the Midway Community Centre.
