Conley and Payton Gamble.  He was employed at the Department of the Army and was a member of the First Baptist Church of Mousie. He is survived by 1 brother: Stephen W. Gamble; lives in South Korea; 1 son: Jason Gamble, Tucson, AZ; 1 Daughter: Jessica Gamble, Las Vegas, NV. Graveside services were held at the Milton H. Conley Cemetery at Motts Br., Lackey on February 16, 2009. Milton was indubitably "One of a Kind."  He chose a path less traveled by most, and simply did it his way.  He was an affectionate, passionate, outspoken, quick-witted, and an extremely generous person in nature.  His effervescent charm and exemplary skill, combined with his generosity ensued him many lifetime friends and companions in Columbus, Georgia and Eastern Kentucky.  He served his country as an Infantryman and a Department of the Army Civilian for over two decades.  His legacy are his children, Jason and Jessica.  He was an extremely talented and uniquely skilled traditional craft artist, who possessed an unmatched ability to visualize nature's images in the grains of wood and bring those images to life as no one else could.  To possess a piece of his work is a real treasure.  Milton was a generous person who had a magnifying effect on others and showed no hesitation in giving gifts while he was still alive.  He was genuinely interested in others and would go the extra mile to help a friend.  His penmanship and style of writing are unique and inspiring.  He was an avid reader, had a phenomenal memory, and enjoyed sharing colorful and entertaining stories of his formative years in Appalachia with other; if he exaggerated, it was always on the good side.  He will be solely missed by his family, friends, and faithful companions (Jake and Charlie).  Milton now rests beside Mother in the Milton H. Conley Cemetery, Lackey, KY; he was named after his grandfather, Milton Hager Conley.  Milton never lost his love for Eastern Kentucky and the folks who live there.  He especially misses his wonderful friends and loyal companions in Columbus, Georgia.
