Northport, P.E.I. community celebrates a fishermans life with a parade of boats

The community of Northport came together to celebrate the life of a beloved fisherman this week by holding a parade in his honour. However, it didn’t take place on dry land. It took place where Darrell (Daryl) Milligan loved to be – on the water. A procession of over 70 boats set sail together Wednesday morning to pay special tribute to Milligan, who died on May 10 in his home, surrounded by loved ones following a battle with cancer. He was 58.  Friends of the family, Lorna Doyle-DesRoches and Karla Profit, were close to Milligan. Milligan was the husband to Michelle Marie (nee Peters), father to Kelsey (Justin Schurman), Kalyn (Devon Bernard) and grandfather to two grandkids. He is remembered by countless family members and friends. photos, >click to read< 19:16
