Lord Jr., Milbourne Edward, 86, (lovingly referred to as "Ed" by family and friends) went to be with the Lord on April 9, 2012. Ed was the loving partner of Grabriel Eghizi for 43 years. He served in the US Army during WWII, graduated from Northwestern University, worked for the U.S. Government and NASA, where he was responsible in the development of ordnances for the protection of the United States. Ed was a true and devoted patriot, a loving partner and family member. He is survived by his partner, Gabriel Eghizi, brothers William (Bill) Lord and Donald (Don) Lord and his wife Faith, and many nieces and nephews. Ed was pre-deceased by his mother and father, Milbourne E. Lord, Sr. and Rebecca Noble Lord (nee Loux), a brother Robert and a sister Jacquelyn. Ed had many, many, many friends. He was deeply loved by both family and friends and he will be deeply missed. Sometimes only a pedal falls off a rose and nothing is missed from the rose. With Ed, the whole rose is gone and the fragrance of love is missed.
