Charles Milton Braxton or “Milton” as he was fondly called, was born on September 8, 1934 in Tappahannock, VA and transitioned to Heaven on Monday February 5, 2018 after a short battle with lung cancer. He attended schools in Essex Co, VA.
He worked various jobs before working for Giant Food. He was a Seafood manager until 1989 when an act of heroism at work left him permanently injured. He then became the most popular courtesy clerk in the area. Milton loved gardening and fires in his wood stove. Milton regularly spent quality time with four generations of his family. His grandchildren love their time spent with “Papa”.
Milton was baptized at Antioch Baptist Church in Champlain, VA and later joined Mt. Hope Baptist Church, Stafford.
Milton leaves to mourn his wife of 57 years, Edna “Geneva” Chamberlain Braxton, two sons Milton “DeWayne” (Dale) Braxton of Bowling Green, VA and Gerald “Kennedy” (Delese) of Fredericksburg, VA and one daughter Glenda Braxton of Fredericksburg, VA.
Six grandchildren: Anthony Braxton of Spotsylvania, VA; DeVon Green (Adonna) of Upper Marlboro, MD, Heather Green, Brandon Braxton, Audreanna Braxton all of Fredericksburg, VA and Chavonne Braxton of St. Cloud, FL.
