In Loving Memory of Veljko Milanovic

He was preceded in death by his parents, Anica and Mile, and beloved siblings, Kosa, Vojka, Jovanka and Radovan.

Veljko lived a fulfilling and joyous life, bringing kindness and compassion everywhere he went. He was happiest when he was surrounded by family and friends and cherished every opportunity to gather for celebrations. He enjoyed reflecting on memories and sharing words of wisdom from his life experiences.  Throughout his whole life, he possessed a remarkable gift for helping others, without any judgement or preconceptions. He valued hard work, gaining knowledge and strived to keep learning everyday. His smile and positivity has touched many worldwide and will continue to serve as an example of the benefits of living with love, optimism and honesty.
