     Milton was united in marriage to Agnes Campbell in Currie at the IMH Catholic Church on August 6, 1953. He owned and operated Milt Stirn Trucking which provided corn shelling, feed grinding and trucking services in the Currie area for many years.
     Milton won a contract to deliver government commodities to local schools which he operated for several years. Following the commodity contract expiration, he and Agnes went on the road with Klein Amusements and operated a mini-donut stand. They were a standard feature at many local events for many years. Many people enjoyed the warm sugary mini donuts that they sold. They made many friends on the carnival route and he will be missed by them.
