Obituary

SOUTHWEST HARBOR - William G. “Bill” Milliken 78, died peacefully December 31, 2019, at his home surrounded by family and loved ones, after a long battle with cancer. He was born February 24, 1941, in Bangor, the son of Carl Edward and Phoebe Gertrude (Tibbetts) Milliken.

Bill grew up in Hampden and graduated from Brewer High School, Class of 1959. Following graduation, he moved for a short time to Somers, Connecticut. He returned to Maine to start a long career in sales, first with automobiles and in 1969 entered into the real estate profession, where he remained active until his death.
Bill will be remembered as a man with an incredible wit, who could instantly produce a funny pun at any given moment. Bill was an avid hunter and loved spending time at hunting camp, boating and beach combing with his beloved dogs, Teddy I and II. He is well known for his lobster stew and homemade baked beans. Later in life, he also enjoyed spending winters in Brazil.

In addition to his parents, Bill was predeceased by two brothers, Dale and Leslie. He is survived by four daughters, Melanie Roberts of Trinity, FL, Mary Ellen Schlitt and husband, Michael, Carol Milliken and husband Ron, Michelle Milliken, all of Vero Beach, FL; a son, William K. “Billy” Milliken of Jonesport; two brothers, Robert Milliken of Somers, CT, and James Milliken of Bangor; thirteen grandchildren, Melissa Black, Ryan McCready, Bonnie Giammattei, Christine Schlitt, Michael Schlitt, Bradley Milliken, Megan Beath, Ashley Karr, Amber Grimes, Amanda Grimes, Sean Milliken, Sarah Milliken, his youngest grandson and best friend, Seth Milliken; and twenty great-grandchildren. He will be dearly missed by many, including dear friends, Charles Adams of Dedham, Whitney Austin of Jonesport, and a special friend, Ana Claudia De Carvalho of Brazil.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a Funeral Service, 1 p.m., Sunday, January 5, 2020, at Brookings-Smith, 133 Center Street, Bangor, with Rev. Rodney Dame officiating. The family invites relatives and friends to share in fellowship and remembrance, along with light refreshments at the Family Reception Center of Brookings-Smith, 163 Center Street, Bangor, immediately following the service, Sunday. Condolences to the family may be expressed at BrookingsSmith.com
