Matthew Allen Milner, 46, of Pine Bluff, went to be with the Lord, Friday, February 3, 2023. He was born January 7, 1977 in Monticello to Bobby and Mary Jo Beason Milner.
Matthew was raised and educated in Pine Bluff, then worked as a Little Debbie distributer for many years.
“Our Matt was the life of the party, whether telling jokes or trying to catch up on the latest gossip.
He was loved by so many and was known as “Paw Paw” by all of our friends and their kids. Weekends during the summer were spent lakeside with Matt being our ultimate private chef, cooking for all of the families. Breakfast was his favorite (unless someone was making homemade ice cream).
He was avid about spending time outside-just as long as it involved his baby girl by his side. Hunting, fishing, mowing the grass-they were two peas in a pod.
Family and friends meant the world to him. He was faithful thru and thru. We know he’s calling the Hogs in heaven.”
Survivors include his parents; wife, Holly McDonald; daughter, Ella Kate Milner; son, Paul McDonald; brother, Marc Milner (Amanda); nephews, Braylon and Carson Milner; grandmother, Mary Fowler; and a host of aunts, uncles and cousins.
Preceding him in death were his grandparents, Joe Beason, Bill Fowler, and Joella and Henry Milner; and uncles, George Fowler and Randy Fowler.
Funeral service will be 11:00 AM, Thursday, February 9, 2023 at Fuller Hale-South Funeral Service. Pastor Ron Woods will officiate. Burial will follow in Roselawn Cemetery. Visitation will be 5:00-7:00 PM, Wednesday, February 8, 2023 at the funeral home.
