Michael R. (Mickey) Milligan passed away March 30, 2015 at the age of 73. Mickey was born in Houston and graduated from Spring Branch High School in 1959. He graduated from the University of Texas, Austin, with a BBA in 1964, and then from the University of Houston Law School with a Juris Doctorate in 1968. Mr. Milligan practiced civil law in Houston until 1981; he was with the firms of Sigel, Simms, and Roane, Roane and Milligan, and the law firm of Johnson, Wurzer, and Milligan. He began practicing civil law in El Paso in 1981 as a solo practitioner, and continued there until 2011 when he returned to Houston.

Mickey is survived by his sister, Kathy Wilson (husband Mike), and nieces Jennifer Franco (husband Pablo and their children McKenna, Malia, and Finley), Krysti Wilson Dailey (husband Kregg and their children Ryder and June), and Kelly Wilson. Mickey's parents, Gaymond and Hilda Milligan, predeceased him. Mickey's Uncle Bill Williamson (wife Dot, both deceased, of Tulsa) and their sons, Mickey's cousins, Ron, Ted, and, especially, Ed Williamson, shared a lifelong camaraderie.

A private memorial gathering will be held at the family's ranch in Cat Spring, Texas at a future date. Mickey brought much joy to family and friends by his wit and his wisdom, and through his many talents. Everyone is invited to leave notes of remembrance through www.earthmanbellaire.com.
