Brothers that have passed away are Issac Melvin Milstid, Junior Floyd Milstid, Charles Rudolph Milstid, and one sister, Ester Valois Hall.

Tommie who was called “Gene” by friends started his young adult life as a farmer in the Perdido, Alabama area, then moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana and went into the Construction business, mainly constructing commercial metal buildings. After Hurricane Camille, he and his family moved to the Mississippi Gulf Coast and played a very big part in rebuilding the Gulf Coast. He later became a real estate developer and worked until late in life.

Tommie was liked by everyone and loved by his family and now he has moved on to heaven where he can join those loved ones that passed on before him.

There will be no service at this time out of consideration of others during the current health crisis. He will be cremated which the family feels is best at this time.
