Have been waiting for the right words to come, there just are none. Remembering Milton as the nine-year-old I met so many years ago and all of the smiles and laughs we shared through those years, so recently right here in the room where I sit. He rarely spoke of his own troubles, rather, beamed about his family, and shared stories of his adventures and misadventures, often in helping his loved ones and friends. Prayers and wishes to all that feel his loss. Godspeed Milt, Kelly

It was with great sadness I saw the passing of Milt. I worked with him at Corning and he was someone I relied upon who did an outstanding job. A real stand-up guy who was kind, funny and I thought a lot of him. My deepest sympathies to his family. Mark

I was so incredibly saddened to learn of Milt’s passing and my thoughts are with his family during this very difficult time. Milt was a wonderful man, always had a warm smile on his face and wonderful conversation. I interacted with him at Corning Incorporated when our paths would cross with IT work. I will truly miss his smiling face around the HQ building. RIP Milt, you will be missed.

When I joined Corning Inc as a contractor learning Avaya PBX and Cisco VOIP, you took me under your wing and taught me so much. I learned all of the Corning buildings, data closets, etc from you sharing all you knowledge and experience. You were always willing to take time out of your day to help people out; especially me. You were always a pleasure to be around and constantly cracking everyone up. I even recall some interoffice pranks we both pulled on each other. I remember using the intercom auto-answer on your desk phone to blast a Justin Bieber song into your cubicle for everyone to hear. It didn't take you long to get me back for that one either.

I'll never forget all the good times at Corning. It was a pleasure getting to know you, Milt. Rest in peace, old friend.
