Milton worked for many years as a supervisor/foreman for North Star Steel and later, Bechtel. During his time as a supervisor, he would mentor many of the men he worked with. Through his mentoring, Milton would develop many great relationships with his co-workers. He was a member of The Truth and had a faithful devotion to God. In his spare time, Milton enjoyed many hobbies. He loved nature and many of his favorite hobbies brought him outdoors, such as hunting, fishing, gardening, football, travelling, or sometimes just sitting around a fire. Milton also enjoyed collecting antiques, creating flower arrangements on pieces of driftwood, and repairing old clocks. Most of all, Milton loved being with his family. He was the most devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend, and he will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
