Roger Melvyn Milliken Sr 2022

Roger’s Obituary Franklin – Roger Melvyn “Poppy or Pop” Milliken, Sr., 92, passed away on Nov 18, 2022. He was born in Tennessee and as a teen moved to Maryland. Roger enlisted in the US Air Force, then asked his girl “Will you wait for me?” and she said “No way!” Well, he wasn’t a stupid man, so he said “Will you marry me?” and she said “Yes!” So, they got married and she waited. Over the years they raised three kids and later moved the family to Virginia where he ended up retiring as a welder. Roger never knew a stranger, loved to talk and tell stories, give and receive hugs, fish and golf. Roger is pre-deceased by “his girl/wife”, Wilma Dick Milliken. He is survived by their three children, Lisa McCartney (Mac), Roger Milliken, Jr., and Karen Milliken; “Poppy” to two grandkids, Dawn Hayes (Chad), and Ronald Hensley II; “Pop” to six great-grandkids, E. Niles II, Madison Niles, Bryce Hensley, Ian Hayes, Cody Hensley, Alyssa Hensley; and two great-great grandkids, Tucker White and MacKenna Reveal. He was a Member of Grace Lutheran Church in Courtland and JL Camp YMCA in Franklin where he enjoyed many hugs from “the girls at the Y” oh… and we think the exercise too. A Memorial Service with Military Honors will be held at Grace Lutheran Church for Family and Friends on November 26, 2022 at 11:00AM with Pastor Kay Hute officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Grace Lutheran Church, 25280 New Market Rd., Courtland, VA 23837. Read More
