November 6, 1936 - September 1, 2020
Jimmie Milton Dawson, 83, of Mildred, passed away at his home on September 1, 2020. Milton, as he was known to his family, was born in Kirvin, Tx. on November 6, 1936. Milton’s parents were Jimmie Elizabeth Robinson and Thomas Dawson. He was their only child. Before retiring to Mildred in 1991, Milton worked as a foreman for Chicago Bridge and Iron for 36 years. He and his wife Wanda traveled extensively throughout the southern United States. Milton oversaw the construction of water towers, spheres and flat bottom tanks all across the south. Milton was passionate about his orchard “Happy Ours Farm” that he and Wanda started after his retirement. He and his wife operated their small orchard and truck farm for 25 years in Mildred. He would get up every day and feed all the wild animals, squirrels, dove, ducks etc. Milton loved animals! Although Milton was very hardworking, many people did not realize that he was in a 20-year battle with prostate cancer. Milton fought his cancer courageously until the end! He always said, work was fun and fun was work, and he lived by this mantra until the last few months of his life. Milton was proceeded in death by his wife of 58 years, his mother, father, stepfather John W. Walthall, his son-in-law Johnny Chapman, and an uncle that he loved like a brother Edward Robinson. Left to honor and cherish his memory is his only child Tammy Chapman, his grandchildren Justin and Christy Chapman, Holly and Tiger Galbreath, and three great grandchildren Rhen, Avery and Claire, and numerous cousins, friends, and customers. There will be a graveside service for Milton at Woodland Cemetery September the 5th at 10:00 AM. Gene Allen and Don Vail will conduct the services per Milton’s request. Please abide by Covid 19 rules and wear a mask! In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Woodland Cemetery of Kirvin, Tx.
