Milan, Emil J. - Hurst  
Emil J. Milan, 86, passed away Monday, May 2, 2016, of complications after surgery. Funeral: 2 p.m. Saturday at St. Paul Lutheran Church, 1800 West Freeway, Fort Worth. Entombment: Greenwood Mausoleum, reception following at the Fort Worth Sokol Club. Visitation: 5 to 8 p.m. Friday at Greenwood. Memorials: In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Darrell K. Royal Research Fund for Alzheimer's, care of Dallas Foundation, 3963 Maple Avenue, Dallas, Texas 75219; or Sokol Fort Worth, 6500 Boat Club Rd., Fort Worth, Texas 76179; or the American Heart Association. Emil was born Sept. 10, 1929, in Fort Worth. He graduated from North Side High School in 1948. During a stint in the U.S. Air Force he married his high school sweetheart, the love of his life, Sally McDonald, on Sept. 23, 1949. Emil and Sally had two children, Debbie and David. Emil was discharged from the Air Force in 1954, moved the family to Austin and enrolled at the University of Texas where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in physical education. After graduation, Emil moved his family back to Fort Worth and began his career at the Eagle Mountain Saginaw Independent School District coaching football and teaching physical education in the junior high school. In 1964, he earned his masters degree in education at the University of North Texas. He began a private gymnastics program at the Fort Worth Sokol and incorporated tumbling in his junior high classes. In 1965, he was contacted by Georgia Tech University for a position as their head gymnastic coach. At the same time, he was approached by the Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD to start a successful physical education and gymnastics program. He had always wanted a college coaching job, but it was such a promising opportunity at L.D. Bell High School, he decided to stay in Texas. Milan had been associated with gymnastics in Texas since his days as a member and coach of the Sokol Gymnastics Team in the 1940s. When the HEB ISD built the new L.D. Bell High School, he became the beacon that would light the way for a multitude of talented young athletes, not just at L.D. Bell High School, but across the state of Texas. Milan coached at L.D. Bell from 1965 until retirement after the 1990 season. In 1967, L.D. Bell High School hosted the first Texas State High School Gymnastics Meet. During his 25 year tenure, the boy's teams won 14 state titles, placed 2nd five times, and 3rd three times. Before hiring a full time girls coach, he directed the girl's teams to three state titles. He coached 12 consecutive boys All American teams and had 123 athletes earn All American honors. Every team he coached went to the state gymnastics meet. He served as a member of the Olympic Junior Nationals AAU, Pan American Games and World Gymnastics Championship steering committees. He coordinated the first-ever International Gymnastics Meet in Fort Worth in 1981 and the first-ever National High School Championships in 1988. He was also a gymnastics staging manager at the 1984 Olympics held in Los Angeles. Milan was named four times each as the Texas and National Gymnastics Coach of the year. In 1996, he was inducted into the HEB Sports Hall of Fame, along with his first 1967 boys and girls gymnastics teams. He founded the Texas State High School Gymnastics Coaches Association, Texas Gymnastics Judging Association, and was instrumental in forming the Gymnastics Association of Texas. He is known as the "Father of Texas High School Gymnastics." Although he was grateful for his numerous awards, he was most proud of all of the kids' accomplishments and the 120 plus college scholarships his athletes earned. Hulen Smith, HEB Athletic Director, characterized Milan's contributions quite well. "There may be a lot of coaches come along through the years, and there will be some like Emil. But none of them will have the timing, the opportunity, the tenacity and the vision to produce what Emil Milan accomplished." He was a loving father and grandfather that put family first and lead them with love and caring guidance. Emil was preceded in death by parents, Joe and Anna Milan; wife, Sally Milan; sisters, Mary Renfro, Jeannie Mason and Rosie Steinman; and brother, Joe G. Milan. Survivors: Daughter, Debbie Milan Ulrickson and husband, Joe; son, David Milan and wife, Karen; grandson, Jordan Milan and wife, Julie; granddaughters, Christy Dougan and husband, Curtiss, and Lori Lee and husband, Scott; great-granddaughters, Annie Dougan, Grace and Mia Valdez; brothers, Frankie Milan and Jerry Milan; sister, Frances Mamula; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
