Our beloved Husband, Father, Pops, Brother and Friend passed away on Tuesday March 24th 2015. Daniel Millikin was a man of many things. He was a devoted husband and father, a doting Pops, a loving & selfless Brother, Uncle, In-Law and Friend. He is survived by his wife of 35 years, Donna Millikin, two daughters Penny (Josh) Blanton and Kelly (David) Harris, and two grandchildren Kayden and Kerrington Harris. This group has always shared an unbreakable bond that could never be duplicated. His grandson Kayden was the subject of his massive photo collection, as Pops documented his every move and was his best buddy. Kerrington holds a close runner up position to the massive photo collection and he could always be seen carrying her baby dolls, as Pops was her personal assistant. Daniel was the youngest of seven children, born to the late Ernest and Frances Millikin. He was preceded in death by his brothers Kenneth and Ernest (Bubba). His surviving siblings are Jean Andrews, Patricia Hughes, Teresa Scopoli and his twin sister Denise Seymour. He was quite the jokester and loved teasing his sisters. Daniel enjoyed sunny days, working in the yard, plants, flowers, gardening, basketball, photography, collecting baseball cards, grilling out, puzzles, friendly dance competitions, THE Gators and attending Kayden's baseball games. But above all else he cherished spending time with his family. Daniel worked in the print industry for over 30 years. The last years of his life were spent assisting his wife in being a caregiver for her mother "GiGi" (Doris) and brother John, who was his "homie". He treated his wife's family as his own and loved Pat and B.F. as if they were siblings. He left behind many nieces and nephews and had a special bond with each and every one of them. Daniel had a heart of gold and would give the shirt off his back to someone in need. He found humor in every situation and could light up the room with his infectious smile. Life truly will not be the same without him.
