Milton E Galbraith
Born: 10/4/1925, Burlington, Iowa
Milton E. Galbraith, a long-time resident of the Moab Community, passed away on Saturday, October 25, 2014, in his home surrounded by loved ones. Milton was born in Burlington, Iowa, October 4, 1925. He married Audrey McKasson, his wife of 63.5 years, in Burlington on March 19, 1951. Milton and Audrey moved to Moab in 1954 during the uranium boom and built Milt's Stop and Eat, which opened Labor Day that same year. Milt's was their livelihood for 27 years. Milton served his country in the Navy during WWII and was a recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross. Milt was an avid motorcycle rider; and, upon retirement, golf became his passion. Milton was a member of Masonic Lodge #30, Shriner's El Kalah Temple, United States Golf Association, Moab Community Church, and a life member of American Legion Post 54, and BPOE (Elks). His family was his major source of happiness, consisting of his wife, Audrey, Moab, Utah; two daughters, Janet Bisceglia, Hampton, New Hampshire, and Diane Park, Denver, Colorado. Janet has two children, Bradley Kallsen and Lindsey Shoemaker; Diane's children include Bryan Park, Corinne McBrier, and Kyle Park; he was the proud great-grandfather of five. The family asks that any donations be given to Moab Community Church in lieu of flowers.

Tributes10/28/2014 - I'm so very sad to hear of this. My condolences and thoughts go out to Audrey and family. I have so many memories of Milt back in the day. It was simpler, more innocent time in Moab that is lost forever. Milt and I always had the connection that we came from Iowa to this fearsome desert. Anyway, he was great chef and a great guy. - Tom Till10/28/2014 - Dear Galbraith Family,
Please accept my sympathy on the passing of Milt. He was a true Moab icon and will be missed by all you knew & loved him.
