Milton resided in Ancramdale, NY, for forty plus years. Milton showed his family the meaning of hard work. Milton worked for the Willow Brook Farm in Millerton, NY, and the Town of Ancram Highway Department over forty plus years. Many knew his town truck within the community and his skillful driving to keep the roads safe. Milton enjoyed the work he did and valued the farm life.
Milton touched the lives of everyone around him with his storytelling and humor. He will be forever remembered by his love for John Deere, the Yankees, and a good western. In Milton’s younger years, he enjoyed a good time, including his bowling and softball team. Milton enjoyed weekend outings to the racetrack at Lebanon Valley. Milton could never let a good farming or hunting story pass by. Milton had a love for animals, especially his dogs. One of his famous quotes from John Wayne was, “come here, dog.”
