Milo?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

As you know Milo (Milod) and I were regular correspondents but the last time I heard from him was an email on the 17th December last year.

 

I’ve had no response to my e-mails nor to PM’s from here.

 

I’ve tried most of all I can think of from here to find out if something has happened to him and continue to keep trying as I’m not prepared to just let him go without knowing what (or if) anything has happened.

 

I know MIlo was very popular amongst you and I just wonder if anyone there has got any clues that will help me find any helpful information please?

His name was Milo Dailey and he lived somewhere near Deadwood South Dakota.

 

I know he wrote for local newspapers and was a photo journalist and covered the rodeo season for the papers. His wife’s name was Carla and he was a year older than me which makes him 72.

 

Does anyone have recent knowledge of him that might help me please?

 

Milo was last here on 12th Nov. last year.

He wrote an article for his newspaper (even though he retired) on December 20th.

 

 

OK Mr Pup, how do you know that and do you perchance know what the paper is called?

Contact his (and his wife's) employer at bcp.news@rapidcityjournal.com I'm sure they will be happy to pass on to him a message to contact you.

I sent an email off yesterday having one more try to contact my mate Milo.

 

This came back this morning from Carla his wife.

 

"Milo had fallen a while back and was having some problems with his "good arm."

He went to physical therapy 5 or 6 weeks. That wasn't helping so they did an MRI and found cancer in his lung. The tumor was also growing into a rib.

They did radiation and chemo.

He seemed to be doing worse so they did a CT scan and found the cancer had gotten really aggressive and was going down the side of his spine. He was put in hospice care Feb 14 (our 43rd wedding anniversary).

He died early morning Feb 18.”

 

I had a feeling there was something bad happening as it was unlike him not to return emails.

 

Now I know, I wish I didn’t and I feel sick to my stomach as this is only minutes old for me.

 

Friends, we’ve lost a special person here and I for one am going to miss him a lot!

I am sorry to hear that. We were going to have breakfast at the geographical center of the continent one day.

That is really sad to hear but thank you Digger for letting us all know.

 

Milo came across as a real decent bloke and it is a sad loss to all on this site who enjoyed his posts over the years.

 

RIP Milo.

Bad news.

 

What a shock, and a great shame.

 

Like many others here, I always enjoyed reading his views and corresponding with him - we will all miss his posts.

Good guy. Always had a way of reigning us in and being the voice of reason.

 

Very true. A smart and gentle man with a vast knowledge of nearly everything.

I thought about him when we drove through Belle Fourche last year. I really should've contacted him ahead and met up.

There are few around here that I respect and appreciate more than I did Milo.

He was one of the best. :(

I can hardly believe we will not be hearing anything more from Milo. Such a terrible shock.

I can't write anything more.
