Ascension : Dr Milenko Gradinski
Submitted by The Islander (Ascension Island Government) 05.06.2014 (Article Archived on 19.06.2014)

It was with considerable shock and distress that Tara and I learned last week, while we were in the UK, of the death of Dr Milenko Gradinski.

 

It was with considerable shock and distress that Tara and I learned last week, while we were in the UK, of the death of Dr Milenko Gradinski.

 

 

Milenko was one of the best.  Along with Dr Bill Hardy and their dental team, nurses, midwives, technicians, pharmacist and support staff, Milenko looked after us all.  For him it was more than just a job.  He worked to repair us when things went wrong.  But he also promoted public health programmes designed to prevent things going wrong.  He had a fantastic, friendly style; putting us all (including our children) at ease.  No-one was afraid to see their doctor.

 

Tributes from overseas have been arriving on my desk.  The Governor considered Milenko a friend – they use to talk of the Balkans and Ascension regularly.  The Commander of British Forces, Commodore La Forte has also sent his condolences.  Milenko’s reputation went far wider than Ascension.

 

Ascension has tragically lost a good man, a friend and colleague.  It is hard to imagine Ascension without Dr Milenko.  We will miss him.  My thoughts are with his wife, Vera, his sons, and the hospital team who have lost their boss.

 

Rest in Peace Milenko
