Our hearts are hurting today, like many of those in Schroon Lake and beyond, after learning of the passing of John Milsom. He was 73. John passed away Saturday morning at his residence in Schroon Lake. John was a well-known and well liked figure all over town. Many knew him through his church, others from the the Schroon Lake Fish and game club and his other volunteering activities.
But for us, he and Linda were our friends and neighbors. I will always remember John behind the wheel of his boat with a big grin on his face with his grandkids in tow. He was a man who loved the lake, loved his family and loved life. John was always there to lend a hand, loan tools -- and give advice on how to use them -- all with a big smile.
Our condolences, thoughts and prayers go out to Linda, Debbie, Robert, Amy, Nancy, and all of John's grandchildren, family and friends.
There will be a viewing on Tuesday September 19, 2017 from 3 pm to 6 pm at the Community Church in Schroon Lake.
The Funeral will be at 11 am on Wednesday September 20, 2017 at the Community Church.
