MICHAEL W. MILBURN “CHIEF”

5/13/1951 - 1/28/2013

He wore his badge with honor, dignity & pride

And did his best to serve mankind

So now, a scholarship, we present in his name

To those who seek to do the same.

His mischievous grin, that twinkle in his eye

A wave to all he knew, as he drove by.
