About Milton Tarbox
On November 30, 2010, our friend Milton R. Tarbox, succumbed to a disease about which very little is known. Milt, “Uncle Milty,” did not leave us without a fight. Ironically, it was not the fight in Milt that made him who he was. Milt was a very laid back, go with flow kind of person. Many will remember his signature laugh. Be it on a golf course, his favorite sport, or enjoying time with family and friends, Milt was never short on laughter. He enjoyed riding his bike, taking walks, and was an avid reader. Milt tried his best to fight his age. We all thought he was 10 years younger than his birth date would confirm. Of course, he did have a sweet tooth, which on many occasions came in direct conflict with his healthy lifestyle.
Never one to quit, Uncle Milty fought his disease. The fight was not only for his recovery, but also to say he got another day with those people and things he loved. He would always “pay it forward,” because he knew he was truly blessed. Now it is up to us to carry this legacy as we, together, pay it forward to help others in need. He would want it no other way.Donate to MCC Research
