Harold Lee Milstead Sr.

July 19, 2021

Harold Lee Milstead Sr. was taken from this world too soon and went to be with his Lord and Savior, July 17, 2021 in Pensacola, FL.  He was born in Atmore, AL on May 27, 1955 to Charles (Buck) Lester Milstead and Dorothy Elois Brooks.  He was preceded in death by his parents, his son Harold Lee Milstead Jr. and his brothers, Charles Milstead and John Milstead.

Harold was raised in Cantonment, FL and spent the the last 22+ years traveling with his wife Debbie throughout the United States for his career in Electrical Instrumentation. He was a Project Manager until his retirement in June 2019. Harold was a member of the Ensley Lodge No. 278, __A & A Scottish Rite and Hadji Shrine. He loved spending his free time fishing, hunting, golfing, and occasionally visiting the casino. He also enjoyed watching college football and was an avid Florida Gators fan. After his retirement he returned to his home in Cantonment, FL where he enjoyed spending time on numerous projects around the house, “piddling” around in his garden and making sure the yard was always well maintained.

Harold was a wonderful husband, father, Pawpaw, brother, friend, and a mentor to many.  He loved his family dearly and enjoyed making memories with them at every opportunity. He brought life to everything, was truly one of a kind and will be greatly missed.
