William Stephen Milford


William Stephen Milford passed away peacefully in his sleep on August 10, 2019 at the age of 67 surrounded by loved ones in Tyler, Texas. Steve was a native Texan born on January 31, 1952 in Dallas, Texas to Lou Frances Milford. He graduated from H. Grady High School in Dallas, Texas in June of 1970. He met his loving partner, Linda, in 1995 in California and they soon started their life full of adventures together. He was a devoted partner, father, and grandfather. His most prized possession was the moments he spent with his family. His family paid tribute to him stating "Steve had an infectious smile and was so joyful. He loved being surrounded with family. He had such a big heart, a great sense of humor and would light up any room he was in, he touched many hearts, made friends easily and was loved by many. When it came to family there wasn't anything, he wouldn't do for them". He will be deeply missed by family, friends, and all who knew him. Steve was preceded in death by his mother Lou Frances Milford and his brother Phillip Raymond Bass. He is survived by his loving partner Linda Clayton, children Karen Brewer, Tammy Sari, Brian Milford, and Renee Milford, grandchildren Cheyenne Tomlinson, Taylor Ashley, Koda Brewer, Sabrina Villarreal, Brian Villarreal, brother John Milford and many more.
