AVIS DE DÉCÈS
Milton G. Byrd
24 avril 1936 – 14 mai 2021
On May 14, 2021, Milton G. Byrd passed away on the farm that he loved, surrounded by his family. Milton was born in Mason, Tennessee on April 24, 1936, to Charlie and Effie Byrd, one of nine children. He moved to Oklahoma City in 1958. He was saved and met the love of his life at Hudson Avenue Baptist Church. Milton and Gwen (Hicks) were married on September 23, 1960. The other loves of his life were his children: Brenda Byrd, Rhonda (Brian) Hood, Scott (Pamela) Byrd, and Stephen (Jennifer) Byrd: grandchildren: Courtney, Rachael (Tim), Lyndsey (Taylor), Chelsey, Zachary, Dillon (Vita), Natalie (Gary), Nicholas (Ester), Chloe, Chase, Kaylee, Gabby and Deon: and his 10 great grandchildren. Milton’s work ethic is best summed up by his insistence on doing his own gardening, mowing, painting, roofing, and wrangling cows well into his late 70s. He worked at the Oklahoma Publishing Company for 39 years, retiring in 1998. He spent the last 22 years farming, traveling, and spending time with his family. Milton, affectionately known as Daddy to his kids and Papa to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, instilled the love of his farm onto them. Papa and Grandma’s house was filled with fishing, hunting, sleepovers, waffle-making, watermelon, and most of all, love. Milton was a husband, daddy, and papa, who will be adored always and forever missed.

Gwen, Rhonda, and Brenda, and rest of the family. My deepest condolences to the family. Mr Byrd was always such a nice man with the biggest smile, and aways made me feel welcomed at his home I enjoyed the times we spent in the pool with you ladies. But your daddy and husband sure was brave to allow all of us girl from St Andrews over to swim. I sure we all will see him again. Until then, you all are in my prayers!

Gwen and Family:
Kay and I were so sorry to hear of Milton's passing. I will always remember the happy and good times we had at the Oklahoman and when he came to our house to deer hunt. He was one of the most Christian men I ever knew. Prayers be with everyone.
