He was born on August 3rd, 1930, in Morgan, Pennsylvania, the son of the late Paul Milkovich and Mary (Rakita) Milkovich. Steve will be remembered for being a hard worker and always providing for his family. He was an avid hunter, gardener, and loved spending time on his son, Steve Jr.’s, farm in Bruceton Mills. He also liked to feed birds and squirrels in his back yard in White Hall. He will also be remembered as a devoted member of the congregation at Covenant Church in Fairmont. He was employed as a coal miner for Consol for 43 years, working at both Farmington No. 9 and Loveridge locations. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two brothers, Enoch Milkovich and Paul Milkovich; and a sister, Mary Wieczorek and his uncle John Rakita. Steve is survived by his wife of 65 years, June (Smith) Milkovich. He is also survived by sons, Steve Milkovich Jr., of Bruceton Mills; Rick Milkovich and wife, Cassandra, of Fairmont; and daughter, Diane Nuzum, and husband, David W., of Shinnston. Steve is survived by grandchildren, Alissa Cook, of Shinnston, Mason Milkovich, of Fairmont; and Brock Milkovich, of Fairmont; and great-grandchildren, Kaylea Cook, of Shinnston, and Richie Cook of Worthington. He enjoyed spending quality time with his grandchildren. He is also survived by his niece Darlene Temple and her husband Jeff, along with their son Brad and his wife; and two nephews Paul Milkovich and his wife Peggy and Greg Milkovich and his wife Teresa and their two sons all of Western Pennsylvania. The Milkovich Family would like to thank Amedysis Hospice and especially the private caregivers for their compassionate care of Steve during his illness. In keeping with Steve’s wishes, he will be cremated, with a private memorial service being held by the family at a later date.
