Glen Steven Milner, 72, of Michigan City, Indiana formerly of Fairfield, Illinois passed away Saturday, April 22, 2023, at The Arbors of Michigan City. He was born December 12, 1950, in Fairfield to Virgil & Nellie (Beard) Milner, graduated from Fairfield High School, and went on to accumulate various college degrees culminating with a Ph.D. from Trinity Evangelical University in Intercultural Studies. Glen’s eclectic style involved him in the restoration of old instruments, particularly organs and guitars, stained glass design, ceramic molding and baking, silver jewelry artistry, and the admiration of classic cars. He was a natural minister and professor whether he happened to be in a pulpit or classroom or not. His accumulation of theological and arcane knowledge was liberally shared with any willing ear. Glen spent many summers at Christian camps in Kentucky & Illinois and was very involved with Pioneers for Christ Mission in the Philippines.
On May 25, 1974, he married Elaine Sheldon who survives along with their son, Adam Milner of Michigan City, daughter, Nina (Brian) Crumpton of Lansing, Michigan, honorary daughter, Andrea (John) Rucker of South Bend, and grandchildren; Aidan Crumpton, Samuel Crumpton, Jessika Rucker & Kelly Rucker. He was preceded in death by his parents and one brother, Burl Milner.
A Memorial Service will be held Tuesday, May 2, 2023 at Michigan City Christian Church 11232 W. Earl Road. Michigan City, IN 46360 at 10:30 AM with a meal to follow.
