Milligan, David George comment (0)

April 22, 2010


David George Milligan, retired pastor and missionary and member of First Baptist Church, Pell City, died April 15. He was 103.

Born in Pennsylvania and raised in Canada, Milligan was a pastor for 67 years before later serving as a missionary. He served as pastor of churches in Canada, Oklahoma and California and as interim pastor of First Baptist Church, Ragland; Mount Pisgah Baptist Church, Cropwell; New Hope Baptist Church, Pell City; and First, Pell City, all in St. Clair Baptist Association.

After retiring, Milligan and his first wife, Neva, were sent as missionaries by the Foreign Mission Board (now the International Mission Board) to Guam and the Bahamas and by the Home Mission Board (now the North American Mission Board) to the Luther Rice Center in Northborough, Mass., where they served as curators.

Two years after Neva died in 1995, Milligan married Eunice Perryman, a former missionary. Milligan is also the author of “Prayers of the Heart.”

Along with his first wife, Neva, Milligan is preceded in death by his daughter, Moyra. He is survived by his wife, Eunice; four children; 12 grandchildren; and 23 great-grandchildren. (TAB)
