Cecil S. Milum
April 01, 1933 ‒ February 09, 2015
Cecil S. Milum, age 81 of Delaware passed away Monday morning, February 9th, 2015 at the Kindred Community Healthcare Center in Marion just 41 days following the death of his beloved wife Joyce.
Born on April 1, 1933 in Portsmouth, Ohio Cecil was a middle child of late Scott and Sadie (Jackson) Milum. He worked as a supervisor with Sunray Stove for over 35 years but considered his work for the Lord, his true occupation.
A dedicated church member throughout his life he was a member of Radnor Baptist Church for 32 years, Valleyview Church, and most recently Eastside Mission Church. He often spoke of his hobby as the Lord and his church. He was a preacher at heart and spent many hours reading the Bible and teaching end time prophecy to others. He was a lover of Israel and devoted supporter of Jewish people. He spoke often of his actual encounter with God during the 3 Million Man March on Washington, D.C. in 1997.
At times stubborn, he liked things his way and enjoyed playing his guitar where ever he could. He also favored fishing, and his treasured family, especially his grandchildren. In his words he was happiest “working for the Lord and saving everybody he could”. His goal was to teach as many people he could about the Lord Jesus Christ and let them know Jesus is the son of God and that God loved them just the way they are.
He is survived by his children Valerie (Michael) Seemueller of Westerville, Barbara (Kelvin) Henry of Radnor, Sandra (Roger) Miller of Radnor, Michael (Sandy) Milum of Delaware, son-in-law Terry Trefz of Cardington, 4 grandchildren Beth, Matt, Mike, Ryan, 3 great-grandchildren Evangeline, Christian, and Nora.
