Senate Honors Life of Robert Milacek
The Oklahoma State Senate has approved a measure honoring
the life of former member Robert Milacek, who passed away on March
31 of this year. Milacek, a Republican from Enid, served in the
House of Representatives from 1976 to 1982. He was later elected
to the Senate and served from 1996 to 2004. On Wednesday members
unanimously approved Senate Resolution 140, praising Milacek and
mourning his loss.
Anderson, who followed Milacek in the Senate, said his predecessor
represented the best of what an elected official should be.
“People who knew Robert Milacek and served with him will all
tell you the same thing. He was a statesman who always put people
above politics,” said Anderson, R-Enid. “Above all,
he was a kind, good man and Oklahoma is better for his service.”
Milacek, who was born in Enid, graduated from Waukomis High School
and went on to earn his undergraduate degree from Panhandle State
University and completed his master’s degree at Phillips University.
He taught history and government for more than 20 years, most of
which was at Pioneer High School in Waukomis. He also served as
principal at Glencoe Junior High School and taught at Phillips University.
“He was liked and respected by everyone who served with him
in the Legislature,” Anderson said. “He is truly missed,
but we are grateful for the opportunity to have known him and for
his work on behalf of the people of Oklahoma.”
