We were fortunate enough to meet Milt after my parents (Kathy and Tony) followed us to Florida and settled in Golden Lakes. Milt and Louise have been great friends of my parents and now my family. Milt was a special guy, great smile and what a story teller! He will be dearly missed.
Lots of Love,
The Carr Family.

I still remember at every party we saw him at he would say, "you owe me a million dollars" (Jokingly) to me and Derek. Uncle Milt was a really funny person, and we would always have good conversations. Milt introduced me to stamp collecting when we went to go visit him in Florida and I still collect to this day! We have had some good times together and he will not be forgotten.

Dearest Milt I will miss you terribly. Your knowledge, your stories, playing batgammon with you, Fighting over the turkey skin at thanksgiving, your jolly laugh, your jokes, treating my grandson as your own, your advice you would give me. You were the kindest most wonderful man who I adored. One day we will meet again. Love Viv
