He graduated from Lincoln High School in 1940 and was soon hired by Boeing after completing technical training. And this is where he met his future wife Glorious Anderson while working on the B-17 assembly line. They were married in 1945 and were together for 63 years until her passing in 2008. He served in the Army during World War II and in Japan after the war ended.
Milton was a very skillful and accomplished sheet metal worker and craftsman. He could build almost anything. His skills and attention to detail were not unnoticed. He became Chief Engineer for the Westin Hotel in Seattle until his retirement in 1983.
He cherished his loving wife Glorious and sacrificed 11 years of his life caring for her after she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. He never recovered from her loss and the toll it took on his health. Milton enjoyed traveling, entertaining, boating, and playing softball, which he did for several years.
The Bjorklund family wishes to thank his teammates and friends for their support throughout the years. He is survived by two sons Keith and Bryan (Laurie), daughter-in-law Connie, seven grandchildren, five great grandchildren, three nephews, eight nieces, and his brother Ron (Ann). He is preceded in death by his wife Glorious, and sons Jim and Steven.
A celebration of his life will be held by family members at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Medic One Seattle.
