He served his country proudly in the United States Air Force and was honorably discharged after 4 years of service. Milam Married his best friend and the love of his life, Sharon Ann Gaily McClellan and they had 55 wonderful years together. He worked as a jet engine mechanic for Delta Airlines and retired after 37 years. Milam was a proud member of the Choctaw Nation, which is the third-largest Indian nation in the United States. In his spare time Milam enjoyed camping and spending time outside doing yard work or time in his garden. He loved to go bowling, and was a member of the Oldies but Goodies bowling team for many years. The only thing Milam enjoyed more than bowling, was spending time with his grandchildren and going to their different sporting events. The family will always remember his thrifty nature and how he enjoyed asking for his “military discount” everywhere he went. He had a wonderful sense of humor and loved to joke around with his family and friends. Milam was hard working and a good provider. He was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. His presence will be forever missed.
