William J. Milne - 03/06/2006
Bill Milne was born in Saint John, New Brunswick on June 3, 1928. Bill was a practicing naval architect and university professor in a career spanning nearly five decades. An alumnus of McGill University and MIT, Bill trained at shipyards in Europe and Canada before joining the firm of German & Milne in Montreal in 1953, where he was involved in the design of numerous ships for the Canadian government and commercial clients, including research and patrol vessels, package freighters, ferries, tugs, and icebreakers. In 1979 Bill joined the faculty of Memorial University in St. John’s, Newfoundland as founding chairman of the Department of Naval Architectural Engineering – the first such program in Canada – where over 15 years he trained and helped establish in their careers a new generation of Canadian naval architects. Throughout his career Bill served on many ad-hoc and permanent maritime commissions, including the National Research Council Advisory Committee for the location and construction of the “Ice Tank” which eventually became the Institute for Marine Dynamics in Newfoundland, and numerous government enquiries into the loss of vessels at sea. Among many professional affiliations, Bill was Honorary Life Member of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers, serving for many years as secretary of the Eastern Canadian Section and on its education committee. He was also a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects, a member of the Canadian Institute of Marine Engineering, and a founding member of the Marine Technology Society in Canada. Bill leaves his wife of 26 years, Ruth Nicholson Milne of Farm Point, Quebec. He was formerly married to Jill Thorogood Milne of Montreal. Bill leaves his children Chris, Geoffrey, MerryJill, Joseph, and Jonathan; and step-children Anne, Roxanna, John, Lowell, Horton and Walter. Bill was the proud grandfather of 13 wonderful grandchildren. He leaves two sisters – Barbara Lambert and Eleanor Milne, both of Ottawa. Bill loved to walk and ski in the woods with his dogs, and after retiring to the Gatineau in 1994 was an active volunteer in cutting and maintaining hiking trails throughout the neighbourhood. Bill was a voracious reader and collector of books, particularly on Canadian history and the Arctic. He was a birder and stargazer with his grandchildren, and taught two generations of descendants to enjoy Canadian summers and winters skiing, skating, and canoeing. Bill died March 3, 2006 in Farm Point, Quebec. He is remembered lovingly by all, especially Orkney. A memorial service led by Rev. Fred Cappuccino will be held at the McGarry Memorial Chapel, 139 Valley Road, Wakefield, Quebec on Saturday March 11, 2006 at 2:00 pm, with a reception to follow.
