The Late Sherman Milton established Milton Funeral Home in 1974. Looking for a better way of life, Mr. Milton relocated to Dade City by way of Miami, Florida. Here he met and made many friends and Dade City became his home. Mr. Milton had his second start as a funeral home owner in a small 1,000 square foot house on Fifth Street before relocating to a large two story antique home. Mr. Milton has helped many people in the area with their funeral needs. He was a very compassionate business man. Upon his daughter, Rosandrea coming to Florida to help with the family business he began to give up some responsibility and allow her to run the family business. She has worked under his training for many years. Rosandrea now has the torch of continuing the legacy of her father who passed away on June 2, 2013.
