Hermon Levi "H.L." Milton Jr., 94 years old, resident of Baker, LA, was called to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on November 25, 2020, surrounded by his loving family. He entered this world on September 14, 1926, born to Bernice and Hermon Milton, Sr., in Walker, LA. He proudly served his country in the United States Army. Hermon was a long-time Deacon and Sunday School teacher at First Baptist Church of Baker. He was a Mason in the Baker Masonic Lodge 441. He served as president and later governor of the local chapter of NECA. He also served as chairman of the Apprenticeship Committee of IBEW Local Union 995 for many years.

He was the founder and president of International Specialties which was established in 1987. Hermon enjoyed serving his community in Baker by establishing numerous baseball facilities. He barbecued for many fund-raisers on his self-made pit. Hermon would spend as much time as he could at his camp in Norwood, LA, which he considered heaven on earth.
