Milton was the sweetest most kind hearted man I have ever known. He always greeted you with a smile on his face and loved to share memories. I loved to listen to his stories about his beloved wife. Milton will now be where he belongs, with the love of his life, Betty.
He loved his family more than life itself, and would do anything that he possibly could for anyone that asked.
May you Rest In Peace Milton. You will be missed. ~Tracey Kunz

Dean, Mark and Matt-may your memories bring you peace and comfort at this time.
Megan would not have had the experiences of her childhood had it not been for Na-nee and Papaw. The time she spent with ya'll was a blessing for us both.

Uncle Dean was one of the kindest and caring persons I have ever known. Haven't been able to spend much time with him in the last few years but all the memories of past years with him, Aunt Betty and the boys were unforgettable wonderful memories. He will always be in my heart. Heaven is a better place with him there. Love you Uncle Dean.

Your dad was such a friendly neighbor. I remember seeing him everyday when he was still able to take his dog for a. walk.
He always invited me to join your dinner if I was in my backyard gardening and y’all were barbecuing. It was so sweet of him.
I’m sure it was a beautiful reunion in heaven when he saw your mom again. I can only imagine.
