Obituary of Milton Sprague

Gary was an outdoorsman at his core, and he loved working with his hands. In his free time, he collected large antique tractors and would work on their engines to get them running again. He had a propane powered 1964 Minneapolis-Moline tractor that he was particularly proud of. He eventually built a huge Morton Building to house all of his machines and “toys” in one place. When he was young, he would participate in tractor pulls that his uncle used to run.

Gary used his talents for building with his beloved late wife, Nancy. Nancy designed a beautiful log cabin for the two of them, and Gary built it in Pennsylvania for them to enjoy.
