Prior to ministry he worked for the IRS for 23 years, last serving as branch manager in Elkhart IN. He enjoyed traveling, camping and visiting the local zoo wherever he was. His hobbies included everything from genealogy to woodworking and more.

He was preceded in death by his parents Clifford and Mary Milligan, his brother Lyle Milligan and his son Russ Milligan.

A Memorial Service will be held at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Spartanburg, SC on April 2nd at 2:00PM. Inurnment will be held at Michigan Memorial Park in Flat Rock, Michigan at a later date.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to St. John’s Lutheran Church, Spartanburg SC or to the U.S. National Park Service.

Almighty God, source of all mercy and giver of comfort: Deal graciously, we pray, with those who mourn, that, casting all their sorrow on you, they may know the consolation of your love; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
– Prayer from the Lutheran Book of Worship
