Thank you for your support during this difficult time. Please enhance this tribute to Milton by adding your memories and photos.


I am very sorry to hear this sad news today. I will always remember Milton as a warm person, sportsman, a man of few words and with a good sense of humor. He will always be in my heart just like Joyce, Allyson and Geoffrey

Condolences to the family at this time of loss. "Milt" was definitely one of a kind, always full of (divine) advice and wisdom. A man of few but substantive words. One could always expect a joyous encounter whenever conversation was had with him. He most certainly will be missed. Much love to you Joyce.

We will miss Milton immensely. A kind and gentle man, we shared some wonderful talks "over the fence."

Dear family,
I'm the chemist who hired Milton at P&G back in the 60s. We became good workmates and, more importantly, good friends. I and all of the others he worked for considered him among the best.
Sorry for your loss,
Jim Thompson

It was my great privilege to work with Milt for several years at Procter & Gamble, much of it in the same laboratory. He was a true gentleman in the best sense of the word. I treasure the memories I have of his quiet, gentle spirit. All who knew Milt have lost a true friend.

On behalf of the Flowers family of Hamilton, we offer our deep condolences to the entire Coleman family ... Milton's beloved wife, Joyce, his children, Geoffrey and Allyson. Pray that peace and comfort will come and continue as good memories flood your minds and Milton's place with his Savior is continuously felt.
