Milton started off doing tree services at Keheay Clearing Company, followed by Asplundh, and ended with Buford. He was a magician at laying the tree down precisely where it needed to be. Milton had many talents. There was nothing that he could not do. He also was fearless and the neighborhood superhero.
Milton enjoyed the outdoors. Whether it was fishing, hunting, gardening, building, or repairing things, you could find him enjoying life by working or helping others. He was known as "Bull" to his closest friends.
To Franklin, Robert and Mike, so long you guys, it was a pleasure doing life with you guys.
