He began his welding career with Montgomery County Government, Department of Transportation from 1979 until his retirement in 2016. During most of that time he also worked for Montgomery Scrap, Rockville, MD and started a small engine repair side business from home. Milton’s interests were varied, he loved deep sea fishing, beekeeping, photography, cooking, especially barbequing, and was masterful at repairing most anything and loved teaching anyone who was interested.
He was totally devoted to his family, Nancy, Carrington and Kylie (and Brooks Zarchin, the son he never had). Milton was their biggest fan, he supported all of their interests, and had constant, unwavering love for them. When family and friends came to visit, Milton always enjoyed sharing outrageous stories and colorful commentary detailing his days at the County and scrap yard. In most recent years, he found joy in sending surprise packages of household items and snacks to relatives. Milton always loved to hang out in his garage and share a beer with anyone who would sit and listen to his stories.
