Milt was honorably discharged from the Navy and returned home to Roundup to care for his ailing Mother Ruth and was the Adolph’s Migrant One Eye Worker helping on the ranch and grew to love Kathy’s cooking. Milt had a very successful career as an Automated Navigation Electrical Engineer. His job took him all over the world working on drones, missiles and airplane navigation systems. His self-described biggest success was having both of his children graduate from the University of Texas. His pride and joy was his grandson Ian, and his new name became Umpa. He enjoyed watching Nascar with his grandson and took him on a trip to Talladega. His other hobby was his love for corvettes. He was proud to show off his ’78 black “Ebony” corvette and ’93 maroon “Ruby” corvette.
Milt never met a stranger and was always down for a good time. He enjoyed boating, cars, and helping others. He would drop what he was doing to assist any friend in need and would give you the shirt off his back. We will miss the silly banter of his life stories and jokes. He cherished time with his family, wife, and animals.
Milt is survived by his wife, Sandra; son, Travis (Eric), Grandpups Maya, Marla, Maggie and Rainey; daughter, Cassandra (Eddie), Grandsons, Ian and soon to be Braxton; Sisters, Janet Stout, Marcia Abbey (Jim); mother-in-law Irene Snortland; and numerous nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by parents, Ruth and Howard Cordingly, Sister Rosalyn Clift, brother Dwight Cordingly.
A funeral service is scheduled for Saturday June 27th, 2020 at 11 am at St. Benedict’s Catholic Church in Roundup, MT.
