Milton L. Pendexter

BENTON - Milton L. Pendexter, of Benton, succumbed to lung cancer on Saturday, Aug. 5, 2017, with his loving family by his side.
Milton was born on Dec. 27, 1930, to Albert and Winnifred Pendexter. On July 25, 1952, Milton married Sadie Peters. They were married 66 years prior to her death on April 6, 2017. Together they raised four children.
Milton worked at Purlac Dairy for a few years before moving on to Keyes Fibre, where he worked for 25 years. Milton enjoyed many recreational activities such as bowling and golfing. He enjoyed golfing with his buddies, Roland Seeley (his very, very best friend), Chris Wing and Jim Fitton. Milton enjoyed working around the house he completely remodeled himself. He loved working in his garden he had for years. Milton was a "Jack of all Trades" and a master of raising his children.
Milton was predeceased by his wife of 66 years, Sadie Pendexter; his parents; his daughter, Candace; and a brother, Alfred Pendexter Jr.
Surviving are his four children, Gary Pendexter, and his wife Mary, of Georgia; Curtis Pendexter, and his wife Debbie, of China; Melissa Carter, and her husband Lee, of Winslow; and Kevin Pendexter, and his wife Erica, of Winslow.
