Your dad was always looking out for my grandpa and mom. He would come out and start a garden with grandpa and then when mom came home from work they would all sit on the porch and visit. He was always on the go and into something. I treasure the memories I have growing up with you guys. Your dad was a good man and will be missed.

Milton and I met in 1965. We became and remained friends for life. Milton was a hard –working, honest family man and furious friend loved by my family including my parents. He was respected by all. We worked, hunted, and fished together, creating many great memories. I am thankful for having such a friend.

When Dad was coaching Little League Baseball and he put us in back of his 52 Lime Green Chevrolet truck that Stubby painted. He would take fishing or to Dairy Queen for Banana Splits.

Milton and I both started with SW Bell as linemen in Bay City, Tx. April, 1957. Already there were: Cecil Clark and Jerry Beaukowsky.
We were the line crew.

Milton and I also played high school football against each other: Leander vs. Dripping Springs, 1950's

We have lost a long time friend but not the memories.
Our sympathies to all the family.

Robbie and family I am so sorry for your loss. Milton shared the Blackmore name with my Mother, Clarice Blackmore Holtzclaw. Mother had a Blackmore reunion in June of every year as long as she was able. This is where I met Milton and you so we could discuss our genealogy, kids, parents, grandparents and the ones before them. I also worked for the telephone company naturally Milton and I could talk "telephonese". Talking about family was more fun. I remember Milton as very friendly and easy to talk with.

May God bless you and your entire family.

I had the pleasure knowing and working with Milton for many years with “Ma Bell”. Milton always had a smile, and a pleasant attitude for his co-workers. Thoughts and prayers to the family.
God Bless,
