Read more about the life story of Fred and share your memory.
Fred Thomas Milligan was born on May 16, 1932, to the late Gladys Robinson Milligan and Fred Milligan in South Carolina. He moved to New York as a 9year-old boy where he would make a life for himself. He was united in Holy Matrimony to the late Laura L. Milligan, who was the apple of his eye. They would have four children, Betty “Pansy” Hamlin (John Hamlin), Frederick “Ricky” Milligan (Late Nancy Myers), Myra Milligan Venable (Thomas Venable, Jr.), and Teddy White who all preceded him in death.
He accomplished being very successful working for Ready Mix Concrete for many years and later retired from Jack Gray Trucking Company as a long-distance truck driver. Fred enjoyed his life and the finer things that it had to offer him. He enjoyed being a member of a Masonic chapter, playing pool, riding his boat on the water, fishing, and spending time with friends and loved ones.
Fred always said something to make you laugh and gave his honest opinion no matter the time or day. He would always make a joke and could care less if you liked it or not, but we would all say “that’s him.” He was also a professional checker and chess player... if you let him tell it. Later in life he became more spiritual and had a special relationship with God. His faith was shown by his will to live and his little to no complaints. He would also do ministry in his own way by going to visit his friends in the nursing home faithfully. He will truly be missed
