A celebration of life ! A beginning of a wonderful new journey ! Your spirit will be with us always !

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Miro Lovric, 66, born on April 21, 1946 and passed away on January 30, 2013. We will remember him forever.

Please raise your glass. Miro and I would like you to join us in celebrating his life with a double shot of Grand Marnier –his favourite- or a beverage of your choice.

 

Miro passed away on January 30, 2013 at the Mississauga Trillium Hospital after an incredibly courageous and intense battle with cancer.

Throughout the two year journey we were so very lucky to be looked after by Doctor Micheal King at the Trillium Hospital and his wonderful R.N. Trish Cameron who went out of their way to help us try and conquer this terrible disease. When all conventional treatments had failed Dr Rajagopal and her R.N. Deborah Macdonald at the Credit Valley Hospital were so kind as to include Miro in a clinical trial that inspired Miro to fight on until the end.

 

I would like to express my sincere thanks to both medical teams who gave Miro hope and courage.

 

Miro lived his life as intense as he fought cancer.

He tapped into many interesting careers, traveled all over the world, enjoyed a good time and pursued many hobbies and interests. Miro was an extremely gifted artist and there was not a mechanical problem that Miro could not solve. He had an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and his scientific mind helped him work through the battle with cancer.

 

Big hugs and a gigantic ‘Thank you’ to all our friends who have accompanied us through our journey, especially towards the end.

 

Miro’s spirit will always be with us and I’m sure he is having a fantastic time wherever he is - exploring, traveling and partying up a storm.

 

‘Cheers’, ‘Zivjeli’ and ‘Prost’

 

Let us celebrate Miro’s life!

 

Love always,

Marion

This tribute was added by Marion Ophees on 30th January 2014

"Miro, I figured I'd come up and meet you half way in the skies today - just got back from London. :)
To think that a year has passed ...  And I have yet to sort through half of your stuff :):)
 Certainly a lot of great memories, especially when I look at the YTV memorabilia and pictures of our travels.
I found  enough funky lighters to remember you by and light candles for the next 40 years.
And I realize I should get into the home renovation industry given the amount of tools :)
A little anecdote: Miro always used to run out garbage day to check what  I was throwing out and half the 'garbage' would work its way back into the house, tucked away in secret places for later projects :):):) And there were many.....
Cheers, I will have a shot of your favourite beverage tonight, thinking of only and all the good times...
Love Marion"
