Obituary

Milan Mike Beletic
July 2, 1949 – May 30, 2019

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mike Beletic, 69 years, of Rocky Mountain House, AB on May 30, 2019 after a long courageous battle with cancer.

Mike is survived by his son Robert Beletic of Edmonton, his daughter Sandra (Shane) Poitras of Beaumont, and his granddaughter Hunter-Lee; his siblings, Maria Sorgo, Remigio (Antonia) Beletic, Gverrinus (Ankica) Beletic, Mila (Idio) Ilijasic, Graciela Beletic, and Lena (Italo) Cerra; his sister-in laws, Jakonda Brundula and Genevieve Beletic; and numerous nieces and nephews. Mike will be missed by many friends and family for his genuine character.
Mike was predeceased by his parents; Eufemia and Antonio Beletic, his brothers’ Miro and Danilo Beletic, brother-in-law Romano Sorgo and niece Irma Sorgo.
Mike moved to Rocky Mtn House in 2000 to run the 30 ton crane for O & S Crane Services; he took great pride in his work and his ability as a crane operator. Mike enjoyed life to the fullest; he lived in the beauty of God’s Country and enjoyed being outdoors every chance he got. When he wasn’t working he would sneak out to go fishing, quadding, hunting or building things in his wood shop. Mike enjoyed spending time with family and friends and sharing his knowledge and experiences with those around him. One such experience is his enjoyment of cooking; and having a pig on a spit. Mike was known for his pig roasts and inviting those around him to enjoy the experience with him. Later in life Mike became a Nonno to his granddaughter Hunter-Lee; when she was 6 weeks old Mike was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic prostate cancer; Hunter-Lee was his strength and his reason to fight. Mike loved showing her his enjoyments in life and being a part of her many firsts – first fishing trip, first side-by-side ride, first sled ride and first hunting trip. Over the years Mike built many items for Hunter-Lee; his favorite being a log cabin playhouse.
A Celebration of Mike’s life will be held on Saturday, June 29, 2019 at Eagle Ranch at 4:30 pm; as per true Mike tradition there will be a Pig Roast and potluck to celebrate Mike’s life, family and friends. For more information please contact Sandra at (780) 604-8204. Cremation entrusted to Rocky Mountain Crematorium, Rocky Mountain House, Alberta.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to either the Central Alberta Cancer Center in Red Deer or to the Cross Cancer Society in Edmonton.

Condolences

Jon Veldman and Donna Nicholson:
We loved spending time with Mikey. We’ll remember him always as a truly caring man. He taught us how to utilize the crane to its total potential and make our work much safer and easier. The meals he’d produce out of his little kitchen proved a worldly experience with unforgettable flavours. He was a man of many stories and layers. He commanded our respect always. Even when it sounded like a scolding we knew enough to see past because that was our Mikey. He will be missed so much. Though it’s now his honour to change worlds and in turn we will honour him.
