Benjamin H. ‘Ben’ Milton, age 74 passed away peacefully on Wednesday afternoon, August 9, 2023 at his home in Whiteland.
Ben was born March 5, 1949 in Ashville, North Carolina to his parents, the late Thomas and Lucille Milton. He was a 1967 graduate of Peru High School and was drafted into the United States Army, where served as a Paramedic for 130th General Army Hospital in Nuremberg, Germany.
Ben retired in 2014 as a Diesel Mechanic for United Van Lines in Indianapolis after 25 years of service. He enjoyed his summers at Lake Lemon by relaxing, boating and fishing. Ben was a fan of old western movies with John Wayne being his favorite actor. His retirement project was restoring his 1965 Corvette, which he often referred to as ‘his baby’.
