Milton Allen 'Muck' Roberts
September 13, 1929 - June 8, 2017
Milton Allen Roberts, the son of Carlton and Bernice (St. John) Roberts, was born on September 13, 1929, in Fostoria, Iowa. He was raised on a farm and received his early education in country schools and then attended school in Arnolds Park where he graduated. Following high school, he worked for the railroad for a short time. He then went to work for Spencer Foods. Muck worked there for 30 years, he was a very dedicated and loyal hard worker.

He married Betty Lane of Spencer and to this union four children were born: Linda, Terry, Rodney and Peggy. He later married Patricia Hibbs and had two children: Kimberly and Kevin. He has spent over 20 years with his special friend, Sharon “Sherry” Small.

Muck loved horses, his whole life was about them. He raised thoroughbreds, he trained them and then he would sell them. He enjoyed participating in chuck wagon races and was sponsored by area teams. He loved to play cards, especially poker and pinochle. He had a good sense of humor and loved to tease people. Milton was very dedicated to his mother and visited her every day.

Muck passed away on June 8, 2017, at the Pearl of the Valley Care Center in Sutherland, he was 87. Preceding him in death were parents; his son, Rodney; his daughter, Peggy Petersen; his brother, Barney and his son-in-law, Dan Borchard.

I have good memories of Muck. Although I worked in a different department I remember him from the packing house a his passion for chuck wagon racing and horses. While working security nights at the Clay Co Fair, I got to know him better. After purchasing a concession trailer my wife and I continued to look forward to helping him celebrate his birthday which fell during the Fair. You are missed Muck.
Love Frank and Jan Petska
