MILTON ALVIN TRANN
June 22, 1923 - November 30, 2019
He was predeceased by his wife Beatrix, son-in-law Don and great-granddaughter Sarah. He will be profoundly missed and lovingly remembered by his children, Rosemary (Morley), Maureen, and Richard, nine grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild and friends.
Alvin was born and raised in Crystal City, Manitoba on the family farm. At age 18, he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Navy Volunteer Reserve. He served from 1941 to 1945 on the HMS Skeena, HMS Ferret, HMS Baddeck and HMS Woodstock.
On leave in Londonderry, Northern Ireland, he met and married his beloved wife Beatrix.
After returning to Canada with a new wife and baby daughter, Dad was employed by the Canadian National Railway until his retirement.
Dad was a member of the Canadian Legion Branch No. 1, later transferring to Branch No. 9. He enjoyed travelling to British Columbia and the British Isles visiting family but was most content and happy just to be at home.
Our dad was a very kind, considerate and loving man and you always knew he had your back.
The family would like to extend special thanks to his home care workers, Winnipeg Paramedic Service, and staff on the 4th floor of the Grace Hospital for the care they gave our father.
A private family service was held December 6, 2019.
If desired, donations may be made in Alvin's memory to a charity of your choice.

The Trann family have been our neighbours for as long as I can remember. Mr. Trann was one of the kindest and gentle men I have known. I will miss seeing him in his chair at the window and our shared smiles and waves whenever I walked by. Our deepest and heartfelt condolences to the family. Rest In Peace sweet soul. - Posted by: Jessie Soole and the Soole family (Neighbours and friends) on: Dec 07, 2019
