Milton Eugene Aldridge, known to his family as "Mickey" and
"Gene" to his friends, age 81, of Huntingburg, Indiana, passed away at 1:10
a.m., on Sunday, February 17, 2020, at The Waters of Huntingburg.
He was born June 28, 1938, in Owensboro, Kentucky, to Milton
Leonard and Leona (Helton) Aldridge. Milton worked as a chef and, notably,
through the 1970's, was a chef for those working on the Alaskan Pipeline.
He was a veteran of the United States Air Force; loved to deal in antiques
and, since becoming a resident of the Waters, became known as the "quilt
man". Over the many years he lived there, he pieced many quilts while
sitting in his recliner. He was preceded in death by his parents and two
brothers, Kenneth and Marion ("Bub") Aldridge.
Milton is survived by two sisters, Bernice Miller of Jasper and
Esther (Stanley) Worchel of Slidell, Louisiana; nieces, nephews and his many
caregivers at the Waters who became his family.
A private graveside service will be held at a later date. Nass
and Son Funeral Home has been entrusted with the funeral arrangements.
