Timothy Silas Milne Sr. was the ninth born of his twelve siblings in Metlakatla, Alaska. Upon graduating Metlakatla High School in 1979 he went on to join the Navy. Afterward he moved to the Seattle area and met Noreen (Price) Milne at the Muckleshoot Bingo Hall. He didn’t know yet she would be his wife. He was going to go back to Alaska in search of work and wanted to take her along, so he asked her if she would go with him. Six months later they married in Ketchikan, Alaska on July 3, 1986. The two had two boys, Timothy Milne Jr., and Nolan and their two daughters Samantha and Veronica. Nolan, sadly died on November 7, 1990. After moving back to Auburn, Washington they had another son whom they also named Nolan James who was their last surprise blessing.
They chose to stay in Auburn in 1999 and moved into their modular home in 2000 where they resided for twenty years. In that time, they worked for the Kenworth Truck Company as well as being a traffic flagger. Yet the best 15+ years were spent being a floor supervisor at the Muckleshoot Casino. He cherished his family time by bringing his kids and grandkids on picnics, trips, as well as holding their family dinners in high priority. He was a daily walker and always admired native drawings and paintings. He spent his weekends taking his wife on trips to play slots and bingo. Tim will truly be missed by his wife, family, and friends, who loved the caring man he was.
