We are herer today to celebrate the life of Milford Case. Milford spent the last 17 years of his life living with his wife and friend, Belinda, in Floyd County.
Dad tretired not only from coal mining, but also from East Kentucky Utilities.
Dad enjoyed many things, mostly those dealing with the outdoors, camping, fishing and in early years hunting. He was also an avid gardener. He would can and then share the produce he grew in his and mom's gardens. Dad loved flowers and watching birds. He could spend hours working in his woodshed, creating such things as birdhourses, loveseat rockers, and paper towel and candle holders. With the help of his father-in-law, Papaw Ison, they made rocking chairs.
I would say, though, that his most cherished hobby was living his last days with his dog, Lady. Inseparable, they did everything together. Dad, believe it or not, allowed Lady to sleep with him on the couch. He fed her from his hand and fed her whatever he ate. Needless to say, she misses him greatly.
Milford Case was born on April 19, 1941, to Andrew and Berchie Case, at Blue Moon. He was a big brother to Philip Lee, Shelby Gene, Harold Dean, Janice Sue and Wesley Case.

Dad will be desperately missed by all his family and friends.
