Milton worked for the New Bedford School Department as a crossing guard for Elementary -John Hannigan School. Being a crossing guard was one of his passions. All the teacher's loved him and all the student loved him. He got to see all the kids grow up into adults and every time they saw him they would always stop to show him love. Milton always looked out for the people and they always looked out for him. It was so amazing to always see how much people loved him and watched over him and protect him. There was never a day that went by that he did not go to the school to cross the children even when it snowed, rained and the hot summer days. He always woke up extra early and got ready to leave sometimes without realizing that it was still to early to leave. As soon as he knew it was that time to leave that was the highlight of his day. He always said I have to go cross my kids. Milton loved Everyone at John Hannigan School. He attended every function they held at the school.

He also loved his movie's and he collected vhs tapes as well and then collected dvds. He was a fan of the old time movie's that he grew up watching. Milton was a unique and special person, there is no other like him. He was the one to make you laugh, the things he would say to get people going. Milton love to protect his loved one's and his friends especially the children but little did he know we was always trying to protect him.
He lived a beautiful life with many loved ones by his side. One thing for sure is that he loved his family and friends. Even though this is a hard time for all of us today, let us carry him in our hearts until we meet again.
