Lilburn was born in Russell County, Kentucky a few miles north of Lake Cumberland. He moved to Anderson in 1940 and eventually hired on at Guide Lamp Division from where he retired in 1972.
He enjoyed obtaining and swapping collectibles. He also enjoyed gardening and had previously enjoyed hunting. Few people who met Lilburn soon forgot this Southern gentleman and his infectious personality. A few moments with him made numerous people feel that they had known him all their lives and found him to be a very likeable person (very similar to the late Buddy Ebsen,aka Jed Clampett). His limited formal education rarely resulted in him being hindered throughout his life endeavors, as he possessed a natural talent for mechanics and noting detail on valuables. He and his late wife Maxaline would often take weekend or week long trips to neighboring states during their retirement years.
Lilburn had no offspring but did have several nieces and nephews around Anderson, Indianapolis, southern Indiana and in Kentucky.
His wife, Maxaline, passed before him in May, 2008.
