it has been deeply saddening news to learn about Mr. Milton's departure. I got introduced to Mr. Milton in relation to a purchase deal involving a GulfstreamIII he owned. i was working as consultant on behalf of a Saudi Billionaire then in year 2007/8. I was not only impressed with Mr. Milton's business ethics but also for the wonderful person he was. Although its late but since i just came to know about it i humbly submit my condolences to the family and pray that may Mr. Milton's soul rest in peace in heavens.

It is with deep sadness that I have learnt of Milton's passing on. I had met him a couple of times over a business transaction in Miami some years ago and was greatly impressed by him human qualities during that short time. Looking at the news now confirms to me that my initial impressions about him were so true.
A person so passionate about his work, he took time to take me around his office and I could feel the joy and pride that he had for the work. He also hosted a private lunch in his office and was a thorough gentleman all through the time.
My sincerest condolences to his family but they should all feel a great pride and honour to have had him as a husband and a father. People like Milton are larger than life and will always be missed by every one whose lives he touched.

Rest in peace.

During the late 90's I was awoken by Bob Dylan, as we cruised through the Exuma Island in the Bahamas. I went and sat on the bridge with Milton and together we blasted out "Hey Mr. Tambourine Man.." as the sun rose above the horizon... an English yacht deckhand (half beach bum) and an American businessman; two complete opposites, having a great time together.

Today Sept 18th 2009 sitting in Tokyo, another land of the rising sun, and now owner of my own business, I heard "Mr. Tambourine man" again and it spurred me to check up and see what was happening in Ferrell life.

Dear Lori, the "Morgster" and Whit', my deepest sympathies to you; you are all in my thoughts.

I wouldn't be where I am now without meeting Milton "tambourine man" Ferrell and since the 90's every time I hear the song it brings back fond and happy memories of the fantastic Ferrell family. Milton gave a lazy bum a chance and a start that I will never ever forget.

Milton, you were and always will be a Gentleman who can enjoy life equally with the most powerful of society and the guy who runs the corner shop or sweeps the street.... or just a foolish English lad who needed a bit of direction!

Thanks. You will be greatly missed.

I wish to extend my family's sincere sympathies to the Ferrell family for their loss of Milton.

I learned just last week of his passing from Jack Simmons, Esq., Mr. Ferrell's Maine trial lawyer, who was in my law office in Bangor.
We exchanged several engaging and noble stories of Mr. Ferrell's very storied and successful career.

My dad, John E. Largay, Jr., a life-long realtor/developer, was a very special friend who met Milton when he acquired property in Maine as a fee in a celebrated case that featured him on the 60 Minutes news program. Dad and Milton became terrific friends who shared some great times and memories, from fishing on Rainbow Lake in Maine, to dining and boating together in Florida. They'd been out of touch more recently, but Dad is sad to have lost such a great friend.

Once, in a complex federal criminal case I had pending in Maine, Milton invited me to Miami to analyze the facts and help prepare for the trial. In impromptu fashion, he engaged me in the Socratic method and demonstrated several mock cross examinations.

I was mesmerized then, and remain so today. He was a kind, generous and talented lawyer who will be sadly missed by our family in Maine. God Bless.

I learned of Milt’s death only yesterday when I was paging through my copy of the Mercerian. Milt and I attended law school together and were roommates during our second year. I remember Milt fondly. Milt was responsible for my passing the Georgia Bar. We were third year law students at the time (I understand that Georgia no longer allows third year law students to take the bar). The first day of the bar exam was the Multistate. I walked out of the first day’s exam and told Milt, with whom I was sharing a room in Atlanta, that I surely flunked the Multistate and I was going to head back to Macon. Milt told me to stick around; he said that we would go out for a few cocktails and watch a movie (both of which we did) and head back to Macon after the second day of the exam. On June 1st, the day before graduating from law school, letters revealing the results of the bar exam were received by me, Milt, and most of the rest of our class: I passed the Georgia Bar. Like Milt, I went on to become a member of the Florida Bar and I threw in Connecticut for good measure. I have so many memories of Milt. I recall the day that our Criminal Law professor, Shand Watson, warned that he would allow only two unexcused absences. Milton was absent from the very next class, and the next class, too, until there was 5 minutes left; with 5 minutes left in that class the side door of the classroom flew open and in rushed Milt, pointing to the clock on the wall and announcing to Professor Watson that he had 5 minutes of unexcused absence remaining. Milt was one-of-a-kind; I’m sure his family misses him tremendously. Carl Bausch

Dear Lori, I was so sorry to hear about the loss of your husband Milton. May he rest in peace and may God give you and the children strength to make it through this diffucult time.

Dear Lori and children, With regret Richard and I were saddened by the loss of Milton. He was such a kind man. Always happy to see you with a kind hello and homemade popcorn. I'm sure he is missed deeply. May God let him rest now in peace.

I had the pleasure of handling many of Milton's complex business and personal insurance arrangements for several years when I worked at a large national insurance brokerage.

Milton ultimately made a business decision to change brokerage firms and when I received a call from his office informing me of the decision,I was told that as a condition of moving his brokerage business, I would be receiving a call from his new brokerage and I was to be offered a job at any of their locations that I would be willing to work at. As it turned out, I didn't need the job, but the gesture was one of the kindest acts anyone had ever done for me.

I learned much about business and the world working for Milton on many of his matters, and I miss seeing him.
