Guestbook

  1. I remember going to Milts tractor shop when I was little with my dad and grandpa. Spent alot of time there. He always had a smile on his face. He will be missed by many!

  2. Our deepest sympathy to you Rich and Alice and all the family. Many memories of Milt at the tractor repair shop, it was the one place my dad always stopped if only to visit!! He was a good man!! Sandy (Hicok) & Jim Miller

  3. We are so sorry to hear of Milton’s passing. He and Louie dealt with many a tractor over the years. I enjoyed listening to them discuss all kinds of mechanical issues on what are now those old tractors. He and Louie liked going to coffee in Nashua and then having dinner together in Ionia, after a short tour of the farm’s latest ‘events’. He will be missed and our thoughts and prayers go out to his entire family.

  4. I was just thinking about Milt the other day, telling my kids about ‘Uncle Milt’ and how I liked visiting him when I went town with my dad. We send our sympathy to his family.
