Milt was such a very kind and sweet guy. We were honored to get to know him through our Mom Donna Dobish. He will be remembered as so kindhearted. So much so we appreciated him deciding our Grandson needed a small "garage/barn" which he so talentedly built. Another sign of his generosity. Thank you for posting all the wonderful photos, videos and memories. He is very missed. Denise and Todd Arnett and families
