Thank you Milton for your mentoring in our spiritual walk. You always think of others before yourself even when you were in hospital. It was a privilege to have known you. Well done good and faithful servant. Rest in Jesus.
Rest In Peace. Having you in my life, although briefly, have only enriched it.
Bye for now Pastor Milton. You will be sadly missed on Earth. In your few years with COC you have ministered to me during my low times and prayed and journeyed with me. I am forever grateful. You are with Jesus now. That is my greatest comfort and joy for you.
Dear Milton, Thank you for being a blessing. Will miss you. Love Jin
You have been a great influence especially to the Overseas Students in the 1980's at Clayton Church of Christ, and touched many lives.
Your love for God and those around you is an inspiration to all of us.
Your wittiness and cheeky sense of humour will surely be missed.
Enter into the joy of the Lord.
Thank you for the words of encouragement you've given me over the years especially as a young pastor at Clayton Church. You've left a great legacy in the lives of people, and one that lasts for eternity. Thank you for all the years of investment that you've sown into the people of Clayton Church of Christ.
Ps Chee (Clayton Church of Christ)
Rest in Peace Milton. I will always remember you as a true friend and will always value the times when you shared your faith with me and my late husband Graham. You have been and inspiration to so many. God Bless you always.
You have left a great legacy that still continues to this day and will be passed on to future generations thanks to your faithful servant heart and your love for our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Whilst our hearts are sad we are also at peace that you are now with Jesus, the one you loved and served throughout your life.
You are still remembered and loved by Clayton Church of Christ especially amongst the former overseas students whom you served as the Student Pastor from 1985-1989. Our prayers and thoughts are with your family and loved ones during this time.
Until we meet again,
Pastor Greg Craanen on behalf of all of Clayton Church of Christ and the Leadership Team
Rest in peace Milton now you are home with your heavenly father and no longer in pain.
Love Evelyn, Valerie, Ivan, Anita & Neville and family, Zelma & Neil, Linda & Dennis and family.
You have fought the good fight, brother Milton. Thank you for being part of our lives through the ministry of OCF Clayton. Glory to God in the highest.
I would liked to have sent a spoken message concerning Milton's connection to St Paul's Nth Caulfield during my time there as parish priest. I remember him for his mentoring of young Singaporian and Malaysian students in the early stages of their faith, and for the practical help and support he gave to them. Later, in contributing to the life of the parish he gave unstintingly of his time and talents as Treasurer, Pastoral Coordinator, Vestry member and Futures Committee member. Milton was either converted or more deeply entrenched into the tenets of his faith at a Billy Graham Crusade in the 1960's. I knew this of Milton, he never wavered from his love of God, and of his faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. He had a true servant heart; always looking for a way to connect with and serve people about him. Milton befriended others; he made them feel wanted, and he made them laugh. And, he was cheeky. He gleefully anticipated the yearly AGM's, at which he could 'stir the pot.' It was taken in good stead! We knew Milton's heart! A brother, friend, mentor helper, and fellow pilgrim on the way. Well done, good and faithful servant. I'll see you down the track (but hopefully, not too soon). Roger Rich.
Milton, You have been such a blessing to me and to many overseas students from Monash Uni Clayton. I remembered that you took care of me so well as a new believer at Clayton Church of Christ. When I had to see a specialist at Richmond, you would pick me up from Clayton and take me there and bring me back before you head home to Gardenvale. You continued to do so for all my follow up appointments during that year. When I was hospitalised just before the final exams, you took care of all the administrative stuff for my exams to be deferred. Your smile brings so much cheer. And most of all, your love and care and concern will be much treasured. See you again when it's time for me to be with the Lord in heaven.
Thank you for your prayers and encouragement when i was a young christian
You have fought a good fight, you have finished well.
Rest in peace, my dear Pastor Milton. You have been a blessing to many students in the past. Your wonderful deeds will earn you the words of our Lord, "Well done, good and faithful servant" and to those of us who have been blessed by your ministry, you have left behind a legacy.
OCF Alumni appreciates Milton's contribution to OCF Ministry in Australia.
A beautiful man of God.
Home at last with his beloved Lord and Saviour.
Till we meet again.......<3
Dear Brother Milton. Thank you for your cheerful smile And life of faithfulness when you served in OCF. I was always encouraged every time I chatted with you. May you Rest In Peace as His good and faithful servant.
To the family members of Brother Milton : May the Lord’s comfort and peace be with you all, as we celebrate Milton’s life. He is with Jesus now in the eternal home.
Dear Brother Milton, I am happy that our paths crossed between 1980 to 1982 at Monash University, Clayton, Melbourne. You are a caring person. You took time to know the students in the Overseas Christian Fellowship (OCF). Milton you even knew that Lee Lee (now my wife) was struggling in her studies as English was not her native tongue. You cared to suggest she take a year off to take up an English. The point is: you cared for the students. As one of the students, I thank you. You will always be remembered. Rest in Peace in the arms of Jesus. God be with you till we meet again.
Thank you Milton for being one of the influential and impactful teachers who modeled Christ to me as a young boy. I know God is proud of the life of service you gave for Him our Savior. Many blessings to you and your family during this time when we remember and cherish your life.
