Age 83 years, a native of Sulphur, LA and resident of Harvey, LA for the past 63 years. Milford graduated from Sulphur High School and graduated from University of Southwestern Louisiana at Lafayette in electrical engineering, and received his master’s degree from Louisiana State University. He worked for Chrysler in the early stages of the NASA Space Program with the Moon mission, and then for many years in the oil field designing offshore oil rigs. He was an avid LSU and Saints Fan, and enjoyed reading and spending time with his family. He takes with him a wealth of family stories and history as he was a great storyteller.  He was a not a boisterous man, but positively influenced many lives with his honesty and integrity.  He will be deeply missed by all.
