Milton Heywood Warrick of Andalusia, 79, left his beloved earthly home on March 26, 2016.

Heywood was born in Dothan, Ala., to Christine Seay and Bascom Warrick. He graduated from Auburn with a bachelor’s degree in economics, where he played on the 1957 Auburn National Football Championship team.

Soon after, he moved to Largo, Fla., where he began his construction career. In the early 1980s, he began building custom homes form his home in Blue Mountain Beach, Fla.

For the last 11 years after retirement, his home on Gantt Lake allowed him to enjoy the peace and quiet he loved.

Surviving him are two sisters, Susan Mason of Savannah and Cynthia Warrick of Spring Island, S.C.; also three children, Matthew Bentley Warrick, Lynn Peacock Elmore and Kelley Peacock Sumrall; seven grandchildren, McKenna Warrick, Drew Warrick, Mason Cook (Kensie), Chapman Cook, Banks Sumrall, Coleman Sumrall, and McDaniel Sumrall; along with one great-granddaughter, Hadley Cook.
