In early 2022, our wonderful Sales Development Manager, Dave Milligan, was diagnosed with a VERY aggressive form of cancer: Stage 4 inoperable liver cancer. If you ever met Dave, you know he was the nicest, most energetic and optimistic person who truly lived his life to help and serve others, and even through the shocking diagnosis and his agressive, painful treatment, he remained "Happy Dave". After a heroic battle, Dave passed away on Saturday, July 29, 2023.
Our hearts are heavy as we bid farewell to a beloved member of our Regal Lager family. Dave brought so much positivity, warmth, and dedication to Regal Lager, and his passing leaves a void that can never be filled. We extend our deepest sympathies to Dave's family and friends during this difficult time. Let us remember the impact he made on our lives, and the lives of everyone he came in contact with. We will honor Dave's legacy by doing something great for someone daily, carrying on his spirit of happiness, integrity, and camaraderie. Rest in peace, our Happy Dave.

We want to thank everyone who donated to the fundraiser we created to help ease the financial burden on his family. In lieu of flowers, the Milligan family has suggested two organizations that were meaningful to Dave, The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation, which is the type of cancer Dave suffered from, and Vision Rehabilitation Services, which is the organization that helped Dave with his Bioptic Lens which finally allowed Dave to drive in his early fifties.
