Milton R. Williams, age 89, of Genoa, Ohio passed away January 14, 2015.  He was born in Ironton, Ohio on August 30, 1925 to Millard and Bertha (Fradd) Williams.   Milton was a U.S. Army WWII veteran of the 28th Infantry Division in Europe where he was captured by German forces in the Hurtgen Forest battle.  He was the recipient of many medals of merit for ground combat, including the Bronze Star.  During the war, he sent a special letter to his sweetheart and future wife, Lorena.  In 1993 a portion of that letter was selected to be memorialized along with other veteran letters at the “Ohio Veterans Plaza-Wall of Letters” in Columbus.  On July 13, 1945 he married Lorena R Dennin, moved to Toledo seeking work and helped many family members do the same.   After 10 years in Toledo, Milton, wife and now two sons moved to a farm in Risingsun where a third son was born.  He retired to his farm after 32 years with LOF and later moved to Geona.  Milton had a lifelong passion for reading that resulted in many self taught skills.  In retirement he enjoyed traveling the west with his wife, gardening, woodworking, garage sales, and most of all, time with his grandsons.  
Milton will be dearly missed by sons Michael of Oregon, Vincent and wife Cheryl of Risingsun, Eric of Genoa; grandsons Evan of Fremont, Adam of Risingsun; brothers, Leroy of Port Charlotte, FL; Morris of HighPoint, NC; sister, Loretta Williams of Las Vegas; step grandchildren Craig, Russell, Rene; step great grandchildren Alyssa, Courtney, Carissa and Meagan.  Milton was preceded in death by his parents, wife Lorena; sibling Thelma, Orlan, Roberta Williams, Clyde and daughter-in-law Diane.  Expressions of sympathy in Milton’s memory may be made to Disabled American Veterans, P.O. Box 14301, Cincinnati, OH 45250-0301.
