Cvjetko Milanovic Obituary, Death – On the occasion of our dearly loved Foundation and Life Member Cvjetko Milanovic’s passing, the committee and members of the Croatian Sports Centre would like to express their most sincere condolences to Marica Milanovic, as well as to her daughters Drina, Gloria, Veronica, and Mariana, as well as to the rest of the Milanovic family. This is in response to Cvjetko Milanovic’s passing, which occurred earlier this week. Cvjetko Milanovic was an avid supporter of the Croatian Sports Centre for many years, and he had been a member of the organization since it was founded. During this sad time, each and every member of the Milanovic family has our sincerest condolences and our prayers are with them. It is impossible to emphasize the significance of Cvjetko’s contribution to the Croatian community in South Australia, particularly during the difficult early years that included the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.
These decades were exceptionally trying for the Croatian community at the time. When taking into account the whole amount of time that was included by those decades, this assertion becomes much more compelling. The Croatian population that was based in South Australia had extremely difficult circumstances throughout the course of the past many decades. He was driven by a sincere need to bring together Croatians who were residing in South Australia and to ensure the maintenance of a robust cultural identity in a location that he did not regard to be his home. This desire spurred him forward. This need served as the impetus for him to pursue the activities that ultimately led to his achievement. Since he was a member of HOP, we will always remember and recognize his contributions to our community in the areas of dance, athletics, and political participation.
These accomplishments will be remembered for as long as HOP exists. We shall never forget him. He was rather proud of his Croat heritage, particularly in light of the great achievements that he had attained up to that point in his life. The fact that he has spent his later years toiling away without letup and committing himself unflinchingly to the expansion and maintenance of the Croatian Sports Center, both of which he has demonstrated to be extremely important, is of the utmost importance. It is of the utmost importance that he has spent his later years toiling away without letup. In addition to that, he is responsible for the completion of a significant percentage of the work necessary to ensure the success of each of these undertakings. The hearty and welcoming sound of his laugh, as well as the intriguing tales he told, will be sorely missed by a lot of people.
