Gary Harvey Milton

Gary Harvey Milton, 74, died Nov. 10, 2012, in Ketchikan.

He was born in Metlakatla on April 14, 1938, and lived there all his life except during two years of service in the U.S. Army.

Mr. Milton was a cook while in the Army, a stevedore, a laborer and a fisherman on gillnetters and seiners.

He belonged to the Presbyterian Church, the Duncan Memorial Church, The Salvation Army and the Metlakatla Veterans Association.

Cooking was his hobby, until he was "fired" by his mom, his family writes: "He thought he was still cooking for the Army."

He was involved with the City Slicker, Merchants and MAC, then retired to the sidelines to enjoy.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Eli Milton and Alma Gordon Milton; sister, Ernestine Milton; an infant baby brother; and niece, Marsha Fawcett Hewson.

He is survived by his brothers, Lawrence (Clara), Eli, Marvin (Ellen), Clarence (Allene), Don and Michael; sisters, Winnie Young, Delma Gogert and Iva (Ernie) Fawcett; nephew, George (Lydia) Fawcett; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A service was held at the Metlakatla Presbyterian Church with the Rev. Jeffrey Sullivan officiating on Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012.

Burial was at Ocean View Cemetery.
