With supersonic speed, LCDR USN Harry Max Milner (88) of Melbourne, catapulted to the next realm at sunrise on January 11, 2023 with both of his daughters holding his hands. A very patriotic, proud, independent and loving Harry spent 27+ exciting years as a U.S. Naval Aviator, qualifying to fly 23 Naval Aircraft including the F-14, F-4, A-6 and A-7 on and off numerous Aircraft Carriers including the USS Enterprise. He was having so much fun, he could hardly believe he was being paid to do his dream job, while serving his country.
Harry is now reunited with his parents William Russell Milner, Margaret Persis Pence and Harry Max Rissman, along with many more. Most importantly, he has joined his beautiful bride Eleta Duncan Milner.
Left to celebrate his life and toast the memories, are his 4 children Rick Milner (Diane), Rob Milner, Eleta Needham (Tom), and Kim Milner.
Grandchildren include Kristen, Holly, Joey and Amy, and Great grandchildren Lucy, Ben and Drake.
Harry’s family wishes to thank his Sonata Viera family for all of the love, care and fun he experienced in his last year as a resident family member.
Heartfelt gratitude to his doctors, nurses and staff at Holmes Regional medical Center and Cape Canaveral Hospice Unit for your incredible and loving care with Harry.
