|Richard Milam, Claims Manager, To Be Memorialized At Gathering At Scoma's in San Francisco on August 15th, 2009. Dick Died Of Lung Cancer On July 10th.|
By Lonce LaMon - July 30, 2009
Richard Milam, a well-known, and well-admired Workers' Compensation Claims Manager in California workers' compensation claims administration, died on July 10th 2009. He was just eight days shy of turning seventy-one years old.
He died of lung cancer after a long illness.
Dick Milam resided and worked in San Francisco and the close-by Bay Area throughout most of his forty year career. He started with St. Paul Fire & Marine Insurance Company in 1965. He worked there as a claims professional for five years and then went to The Hartford in 1970. He worked at The Hartford for a good decade on the United Airlines account, and consequently through his career development there, became the workers' compensation claims manager on the United Airlines account.
Then, when United Airlines decided to become self-insured, self-administered, in 1980, United recruited Dick as their claims manager. United remained self-insured, self-administered up until around 1990, when they then decided to have their claims outsourced and administered by a Third Party Administrator. Thus, in 1990, Dick went to work for Employers Insurance of Wausaw until the year 2000-- for a good ten years.
Then, he spent his last employment with Kaiser in Oakland, as a Unit Manager, beginning in the year 2000, up until his retirement in 2006.
Dick Milam's Memorial Gathering will be held at Scoma's Restaurant on Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco on Saturday, August 15, 2009 from 12 noon until 2 PM. All professionals, friends, and acquaintances who knew Dick, are invited to join in on the celebration of his life, and to mourn his death, at Scoma's in San Francisco on this upcoming Saturday, August 15th between Noon and 2 PM.
Dick's ashes will be buried in San Francisco Bay in a private gathering just an hour or so prior to the Memorial Celebration at Scoma's. Scoma's offers a beautiful view and ambiance overlooking San Francisco Bay, and all industry loved ones are invited to attend this Memorial at Scoma's in order to honor the life of Richard Milam.
