Dr.  Milton M. Small Obituary
Small, Dr. Milton M. 07/30/1915 ~ 03/20/2014 SAN DIEGO -- An extraordinary father, grandfather, great- grandfather and friend has been reunited with the love of his life, Eleanor, his wife of 64 years who passed away in 2006. Dr. Small spent his life helping others as a doctor, and his country as an officer in the Navy. He served in WWII and Korea, receiving a purple heart and bronze star. He stayed close to many of his shipmates from the USS Norman Scott, and friends and co-workers from Balboa Naval Hospital, the dispensary in Norfolk, VA, and at UCSD Student Health. He was a proud member of the Masonic Lodge of La Mesa, the Indian Wells Valley Lodge, the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels and many other organizations. He became known as 'Mr. Anonymous' because he gave of himself, without wanting recognition. He is survived by his daughters, Judy and Liz; his sons, Sam and John; as well as six grand- children and eight great- grandchildren. He was someone who made an impression wherever he went and was loved and respected by all who knew him. Services are scheduled for April 19th at 2pm at El Camino Memorial - Sorrento Valley Chapel, 5600 Carroll Canyon Rd., San Diego, CA. In lieu of flowers, a donation to John Douglas French Alzheimer's Foundation is suggested. You may share memories @ www.tributes.com.
