A graduate of St. Vladimir's Seminary, Mr. Milkovich served as President of the Saint Vladimir's Theological Foundation from its inception in 1968 until 1984. The Foundation played an essential role in the advancement of the seminary; members devoted thousands of "man and woman hours," and millions of dollars, to support the training of seminarians during its existence.

Zoran was also a member of the seminary's Board of Trustees for many years, and Vice President of Personal Trusts and Estates for Chase Manhattan Bank for more than 35 years. His wife of 60 years, Annette, fell asleep in the Lord one month ago, on April 10. He is survived by one daughter, Lisa Madara, and is grandfather to Nicholas, Daniel, Anthony, and Erika.
