Obituary of Dusan Mihailovic
MIHAILOVIC: Dusan “Dule”
On Thursday, December 19th, 2019 we lost our beloved Dusan, peacefully in his sleep. Born August 14th, 1939 in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, he obtained a degree in forestry from Belgrade University and moved to Canada in January of 1968. He spent the next 45 years living in northern Ontario with his late wife, Elizabeth (Betty), and their three children, Mihailo (of Ottawa, ON, married to Anya with four children, Jacob, Maya, Angus and Nolan), Alexandra Lamond (of Victoria BC, married to Simon with two children, Micah and Paisley), and Dawn (of Toronto ON, married to James Downe).
He retired from the Ministry of Natural Resources in 1996 and was a proud Mason since 1975 and a contributing member of the Nipissing Masonic Lodge for 33 years. After being devastated by Elizabeth’s death to cancer in 2011, he received a new lease on life when he met and married Ljiljana Music in Victoria, BC where he has lived since 2014.
He is also survived by his sister, Dusanka Beara (married to Mirko Beara of Burlington, ON) and her two children Stevan and Dragana; his step-children, Natasha Laketic (husband Nenad and their daughter Katarina) and Srjan Music (wife Sara with daughters Maya, Nevena and Sasha). The impact of his loss is immeasurably felt by all those who knew and loved him.
Visitation will be held in the Martyn Funeral Home on Wednesday, January 15th from 6:00 -9:00 PM. A Masonic Service will be held in the Martyn Funeral Home on Wednesday evening at 7:00 PM. A Graveside Service will be held in the Forest Lawn Cemetery on Thursday January 16th at 10:00 am. Please consider a donation to a charity of your choice in Dusan’s name in lieu of flowers.
