Milton came to work for me while I was Chief of Police in Montezuma,Ga around 1979-1980 Milton served three for a few years before coming back to LaGrange after his wife was transferred because of her job. Milton and I stayed in touch until he left LPD. He was a good Law Enforcement Officer and a person always willing to help.Our prayers go out to Milton's family during this time.

He spoke of you over the years and I remember meeting you many years ago in Lagrange I believe at Charlie Joseph’s once. He talked not long back about his time working there. Thank you, Susan
