Celebrating the life of

Phillip S. Milliken

Passed away on October 29, 2021

Phillip S. Milliken

Phillip S. Milliken, 76, of Savannah, GA passed away peacefully on Friday, October 29, 2021, at St. Joseph’s Hospital of complications after a stroke. Phil was born on May 18th, 1945, and spent his childhood in Murrells Inlet, SC along with his eight brothers and sisters. He served in the army before pursuing a career as a welder where he helped build many local bridges as well as the largest tugboat to ever be launched at the time. 

Phil is survived by his former wife, Mildred Pippin, his daughter Phyllis Morris, son Michael Milliken (Heather), two grandchildren Amber Morris (Hugo Carter) and Paul Morris, two great grandchildren Johnathan Morris and Huey Carter, three brothers Dwight Milliken, Randy Milliken and Ray Milliken, former son in law Paul Morris, Sr. and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Phil was known for his quick wit and easy smile. He never failed to make people laugh and he loved to play pranks and tell jokes. Phil enjoyed relaxing on the porch with his cat Dixie, cooking seafood, and his favorite pastime was simply being with his family. He was fondly known as Pops to his loved ones and Secret Squirrel to his siblings. Phil was loved by all that met him, and his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were his pride and joy

To honor Phil’s wishes, there will be no memorial service or funeral. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the American Lung Association in his honor.
