Milo George John Iverson, 70, passed away Monday, March 19. Born on May 25, 1941, in Alexandria, Minn., he was baptized and confirmed in the Catholic faith.
He graduated in 1959, from Jefferson High School, in Alexandria. He moved to Denver, Colo. He served in the U.S. Army as a photographer in Vietnam, and eventually settled in Georgia. He was president of Nature's Finest –– produce –– brokers until retiring in 2002. He was a member of the American Legion, in Jonesboro, and Moose Lodge, in McDonough.
He is survived by his wife, Jackie; brother, Louie (Anita) Iverson; sisters-in-law, Anita Iverson, Gloria Therkildsen, Glorene Iverson; four nieces, Lynn (Steve) Sebeck, Kimberly (Jeff) Thompson, Patricia Turgeon, and Karen (Gary) Semmens; nephews, Jerome (Rozanne) Iverson and Jay Iverson, and 10 great-nieces and nephews, as well as many cousins.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Aurelia (Kvitek) Josephson; father, Emil Iverson; stepfather, Francis Josephson; brothers, Loyd and Loren; son, Michael Reed, and beloved Sharon.
He will be sorely missed by his many good friends and his family. He loved to watch cowboy movies with Queenie, his golden retriever. He knew how to work a room. If Milo was in attendance, everyone knew it. His favorite quote spoken in his rich baritone voice was "What is it now?"
