Edward J. Millin, 91, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Thursday, January 11. He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Judy Cresap Millin, his daughters, Rhonda Russo (Pete), Sheila Marsh (Steve), and his four wonderful grandchildren, Nicole, Justin, Kristen and Ashlyn, who were the light of his life.
Ed served in the Merchant Marines before enlisting in the U.S. Army at the end of WWII. He was proud to be an alumnus of St. John's University where he graduated with a bachelor's degree in chemistry. He spent his career as a chemist in various places before his employment at Crown Central Petroleum where he worked for 30 years until his retirement as a lab manager in 1989.
Ed was an avid runner and participated in many fun runs in and around the Houston area. He also enjoyed playing Pickleball, tennis, golf and just about anything else that would keep him active outdoors. He was an active member of St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church for many years and was also involved with the Knights of Columbus both in New York and Texas.
Ed was a devoted and protective family man, a very loyal friend and never met a stranger. He was also known as someone who would rather run than walk, felt compelled to inspect any car that was in his driveway, loved to show off his skill of writing backwards, and will be remembered for many other things that were uniquely Ed.
Visitation will be from 5:00 -8:00 P.M. with a Prayer Service at 7:00 P.M., on Tuesday, 1-16-18, and the Funeral Mass will be Wednesday 1-17-18 at 9:30 A.M. Both will be held at St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church, 10727 Hartsook, Houston, TX 77034. The Graveside Service, 1-17-18 @ 11:00 A.M., 1310 N Main St, Pearland, TX 77581.
