Milton Earl Cisson

March 3, 1939 — October 24, 2023

In the year of our Lord, 1939, on the third day of March, a son was born unto the world in Greenville, SC. His name was Milton Earl Cisson, though he was known to all as Earl. On the twenty-fourth day of October 2023, Earl did take his leave from this mortal coil, departing in the comfort of his own home, surrounded by the love and warmth of his family.

Earl was a man of great passion, a lover of life and all its joys. His heart was a wellspring of love, his spirit a beacon of selflessness. He was a man who loved deeply and was deeply loved in return. His family was his pride and joy, his wife Donna T Cisson, his former wife Donna H Cisson, his sons Scott (Lisanne) Cisson and Travis (Christy) Cisson, his daughters Susan (Ron) Brinkerhoff, Terra (Jack) Spann, and Brandy (Mark) Seyfried. His grandchildren, Ashley (Wayne) Brannon, Micaela Anne Cisson, Kane Foster, Giles Cisson, Caitlin Dillard, Gabriel Dillard, Killian Cook, Cadence Foster, and Kinston Seyfried, were the apples of his eye. His great-grandson, Anthony Brannon, was his delight. His brother, Jimmy Cisson, predeceased him, and his niece Carol Cisson, nephews Danny and Donnie (Julie) Cisson, and great-niece Carly Cisson, remember him fondly.

Earl was a man of service, dedicating two years of his life to the active Navy and four years to the Navy Reserve. He was a stalwart figure, a pillar of strength and dedication. His professional life was marked by his role as a Manufacturing Supervisor, a position he held with great responsibility and pride.

Earl was a man of many interests, his passions as diverse as they were deep. He was a devotee of the sport of football, a lover of the game, and a fervent supporter of his beloved Clemson. He was an ardent fan of the Atlanta Braves, his loyalty unwavering through the seasons. He was a golfer, finding peace and camaraderie on the green. But above all, Earl was a family man. His grandchildren were his greatest joy, their laughter his favorite melody, their happiness his highest reward.

In the words of the Bard himself, "His life was gentle, and the elements so mixed in him that Nature might stand up and say to all the world, 'This was a man!'" Earl was a man of great character, a man of love and passion, a man who lived his life with a selflessness that touched all who knew him.

And so, we bid farewell to Milton Earl Cisson, a man who lived his life with passion, love, and selflessness. His memory will live on in the hearts of those who loved him, his spirit will continue to inspire, and his legacy will endure. As we mourn his passing, we also celebrate his life, a life well-lived, a life full of love, a life that touched so many. Rest in peace, dear Earl. You will be missed, but never forgotten.
