March 5, 1939 - October 12, 2021
Milt Kansky was a joyful, funny, considerate, loving husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle and friend to all he knew and even to those he just met. Milt lived 82 years of a full life with integrity and honor, first and foremost in his personal relationships and equally true for his military service in the Navy and his many professional years in sales.
Milt passed peacefully on October 12th to be with the Lord, with family at his side and with the blessing of spending time with his loved ones leading up to his passing. He was surrounded by his family and friends daily for all his years as the love, attention and time he gave to his family and friends was returned tenfold to him as it should be. To know Milt was to love Milt. He made all feel important with his contagious smile and sincere heart, and that was simple for him because all were important to him. He loved time in his garden and yard raising tomatoes, roses and more, of which many have been recipients of for years. In his early years, Milt blessed his children on countless fishing expeditions, and many neighbors and friends with his catches.
In Milt’s more mature years of his life as a grandfather, or “Papa” as most of the kiddos called him, he was in his absolute happiest place like no other. He loved, teased, joked with, hugged, kissed, cared for and cherished his grandkids and great grandkids more than words can even begin to describe. His wife and kids knew that was just an extension of the love always shown to them. Milt always “bragged” about his kids and grandkids and how proud he was of all of them, to them and to others. In his last moments he wanted all to know he loved them so very much, he knew they all loved him too and he had a great life; he did not want sadness as his life was fulfilled.
Through all of the love Milt showered people with as described above, none was matched by his sweet and gentle example of God’s unconditional love for whom he admired the most, his bride, Frances. Milt’s love for Frances, seen in action every day, and their mutual love and concern for one another is an example and legacy for all of his family to strive for. This was so clearly expressed in his final days by his demeanor and words.
Milt was preceded in death by his father and mother, Louis and Sophia Kansky, and his six siblings Stella, Lilly, Mary, Helen, Doug and Roy.
Milt is survived by his wife of sixty years, Frances who is the love of his life; his eight children and their four spouses Mary and Craig Ispas, Louis Kansky, Joseph Kansky, Paul and Julie Kansky, Darryl Cox, Richard and Amy Kansky, Robert and Stacie Kansky and Chris Cox; twelve grandchildren Howie, Janessa, Eric, Gregory, Raquel, Madison, Jackson, Olivia, Sophia, Zoe, Holly, Blake; and three great grandchildren Cash, Clyde and Easton.
Milt is already greatly missed but not without amazing laughter and joy from the magnificent memories.
Any future celebration of Milt’s life will be announced privately.
