Mileta, Zeljko (Zel) born May 19th, 1946 passed away on Sunday April 22nd, 2018 aged 71 years young. He passed peacefully at 9:33pm. He is survived by his loving children his son Alan Anthony Mileta and his daughter Suzan Field (nee Mileta), his daughter in law Jennifer Mileta, his son in law Scott Field and his grandchildren Mitchell, Madison, Faythe and Jaedyn. Zel was preceded in death by this parents Mato and Maria and his daughter Rebecca.

Zel was a stubborn headstrong man that loved food and drink. He was fun loving and loved cooking and music, he was intelligent and opinionated and always liked the finer things in life. He lived a full life, he came to Canada from Croatia with the shirt on his back and bravely started his new adventure. He was entrepreneurial and a risk taker which didn’t always go in his favour but he always found a way and was great provider for his family. He was dearly loved and will be missed greatly.

There will be no service at his request, we just ask you remember fondly what a larger than life charismatic character he was who ultimately in the end did it “his way”. So raise a glass to Zel (preferably an expensive scotch) as that is what he would want you to do.

One of the most interesting people I've ever known. Gail and I both enjoyed our visits with him. Wish we could have had more. My sincere condolences to my daughter, son-in-law, granddaughter and everyone in Zel's family.

May you dad rest in peace, or raise hell, whichever he prefers :) I'll raise a glass in his honour, sending love to you and your brother Suzi
