Live Oak —

Paul H. Millington

 

April 18, 1956 - Dec. 31, 2013

 

Paul H. Millington passed away Dec. 31, 2013. Paul was born on April 18, 1956 in Montreal, Canada to Stanley Millington and Margaret Hynes Millington.  A year later his parents settled in Pittsfield, Maine, where Paul grew up and met many of his childhood friends, with whom he still maintained ongoing friendships.  

Paul married the love of his life, Sherry Mayes on Dec. 27, 1978. After leaving Maine for warmer weather they finally settled in Live Oak, Fla. on the banks of the beautiful Suwannee River.  When Paul wasn’t relaxing and enjoying the river or spending time with his grandson he was working on the 1920s home he and Sherry shared with their many rescued dogs, cats and various other critters.  Paul worked at Windstream Communications for the past 23 years as a Network Technician with a wonderful group of guys he thought of as family. 

Paul loved playing guitar, listening to music, reading, spending time with his grandson Ayden and helping out friends or anyone else when he was able.  The following is a quote from one of Paul’s favorite John Prine songs “Please Don’t Bury Me”.  "Please don't bury me down in that cold cold ground. No, I'd druther have "em" cut me up and pass me all around. Throw my brain in a hurricane and the blind can have my eyes and the deaf can take both of my ears if they don't mind the size. Give my stomach to Milwaukee if they run out of beer. Put my socks in a cedar box just get "em" out of here. Venus de Milo can have my arms look out! I've got your nose. Sell my heart to the junkman and give my love to Sherry."

Paul is survived by his wife Sherry Millington, daughter Sara Marangoni and her husband Josh, grandson Ayden Marangoni, mother-in-law Naomi Mayes, sister Marian Howe, niece Courtney Munger, nephew Brannon Howe, long time friend/brother Kurt Sprengle, Kurt's daughter Ruby Sprengle and many other dear friends.
