In Memoriam

In Memoriam

Roy Steele

Roy started at Campbell-Plumly-Milburn Funeral Home on April 23,1992 and was available in whatever capacity that was needed. 

A retired minister, he served several churches throughout the surrounding community and  volunteered as Chaplain at Barnesville Hospital, St Vincent Store and also was a member of the Barnesville Area Ministeral Association. 

Roy was also a semi truck driver. Living in the surrounding community all his life and his history as a minister made him uniquely qualified for his position and helped him greet everyone in a compassionate, understanding way. 

Roy lost his battle with cancer on Saturday, February, 4, 2012 and went home to be with his savior.  We lost a faithful and devoted employee and a loyal friend.  He is dearly missed by the Milburn family.
