Richie Milton, as we called him. It's been a long time since I've seen him. He was better known by my older siblings, Raymond, Helen, Barbara, and Scott.. more their age. I remember his mother being a friend of my mother's. The twins worked a bit for my father on the Fulton Moving Company as I recall. I was very young then; likely 8 yrs or so.

David, Rick, Linda, Gail, Sorry to hear about your dad. I was out of town and just read about his passing. I remember all his quips about life, work, happiness, the one that I can hear him quoting that remains stuck in my head is, "you have to learn the secret." I believe it was something about hard work. He always made me laugh. I have many memories, my condolences to the extended families.

I was really blessed by the bicycle trip through New Hampshire to see the covered bridges in the 1960's. I used to like to go over to his bicycle shop on Prospect Street. I liked his bubbly personality - he was the life of the party. I was glad that I got to see him at my father's wake in July of 1998.

My deepest sympathy to Papa~Papa's family who love and adored him so much. My most vivid memory of him was when he'd come visit Linda and the kids. Whenever he'd see me in my big sunglasses he'd always smile and say " Marie, your a mooo~vie star". A very sweet man whose smile was contagious. He had so many little sayings but you could be sure there was a wise and comforting message hidden inside of them all. Heaven has a special angel to be sure.

I will always treasure my many memories of Poppa and smile when I remeber some of our experiences where you were irreverent and brought smiles to everyone. I knew you were tired and ready to go so rest in peace. We love you.

We will miss Papa. We always enjoyed talking with him, and will fondly remember him dropping by our barn sales and entertaining us with funny stories about things he used to do, and mischief he would get into.
He could always brighten our day.
We love you guys, and will keep your family in our prayers,
Steve and Debby

Dear Dave,Rick, Gail, Linda,
My deepest condolences. Your dad was like a second father to a lot of neighborhood children.... He was awsome guy, always knew what to say and cared about people. So many memories, Like that first ride on his old panhead harley police bike... the old cars and rides, cashman cycles and I was on his baseball team! And the lectures on doing things right in life... He was right :-) I will always be able to hear his voice. Love Jim.
