Milo P. Magnan
March 13, 2017
Milo P. Magnan, age 69 of Delano, died unexpectedly March 13th, 2017. Milo was born on May 6, 1947 in Brainerd, Minnesota to Maurice and Alice (Kraklau) Magnan. He grew up on their family farm in the St. Mathias area. He was united in holy matrimony to Donna Magnan on July 5th, 1969.
After graduating from Alexandria Technical College, where he met Donna, he started his career with Tonka Toys in 1969. Through the years, he also worked at Red Owl Corporation, McQuay Snyder General, and finished his career at Carlson Company until his retirement in 2011.
Milo enjoyed hunting, fishing, and spending time at his family cabin. He had a witty sense of humor and was generous to all. He survived many misadventures and mishaps through the years to provide amusement for others. His talented brother Valere wrote a book of short stories about his exciting exploits. After surviving the odds for many years, which most wouldn’t have, God called him home as mom was missing him.
He was preceded in death by his wife Donna, parents Maurice and Alice, siblings Norma, Louis, Lucille, and Valere.
Milo is survived by his children, Cindy (Mike) Jensen, Chad Magnan, and Christie (Jason) Eckstrom; grandchildren Brandon and Katie Oswald, Nathan Jensen, Mackenzie and Madeline Magnan; sister-in-law Leatte Magnan; and many nieces and nephews.
