Obituary

Milburn Lloyd "Crick" DeGlandon was born on April 4, 1922 in Bastrop, Texas to parents Mr. and Mrs. H.M. DeGlandon and went home to our Lord on May 23, 2017 at 95 years of age.

A graduate from Austin High School, he joined the United States Navy in March of 1942 and was honorably discharged in November 1945. A World War II veteran, he served aboard U.S.S. Howard W. Gilmore.

He married Owsley "Louise" Carter in July of 1948. They adopted a baby girl, Janet Renee in March of 1962.

Mr. DeGlandon served his community as a firefighter for Austin Fire Department and selflessly gave 35 years of his life in service to the Texas Department of Public Safety as a photographer and Investigator, Criminal Law Enforcement Narcotics Division. After retirement, he loved to tinker in his backyard shop on lawnmowers, chainsaws and other small engines.

He was a long-term member of Crestview Baptist Church in Austin and frequented First Shiloh Baptist in Thrall.

Although he resided in Austin, he loved "The Country", his other home near Beaukiss, TX. He stayed there often with his nephew and family. He loved working the cattle, hunting hogs and just riding around in "old blue" visiting friends.

Milburn was preceded in death by his loving wife of 60 years Louise, daughter Janet, his parents, two brothers Birk and Homer DeGlandon and his sister Bonnie Case.

He is survived by his brother, Marvin DeGlandon, sisters Sadie Pankhurst and Vada Mayes, sister-in-law Winette Wheless and many nieces and nephews.

He was dearly loved and is sorely missed by all whose lives he touched.

Visitation will be held from 3:00pm to 4:00pm on Saturday, May 27, 2017 at Weed-Corley-Fish Funeral Home, 3125 N. Lamar Blvd. with funeral services following in the chapel. Interment will follow at Beaukiss cemetery in Beaukiss, TX.
