Obituary

A wonderful man who always loved a “family gathering” would have been happy as he passed into the arms of our Lord, because his family was with him. Irving “Milton” Cross, 92, passed away on Wednesday April 7th, at his residence on Bovie Hill Road. He resided there with his wife Dorothy “Dottie” (Spier) Cross.

Milton was born on June 23, 1928, in Troy, NY, son of Irving and Mary (Dickson) Cross. He graduated from Hoosick Falls High School. Milton grew up on the family farm on the Pine Valley Road and later worked the farm for many years.

He eventually left the farm life and became owner of Cross Dairy Equipment, servicing farms in a very wide area, with their milking parlors, bulk tanks, silo unloaders and more!

Milt was a long-time member of the West Hoosick Baptist Church, serving as a Trustee for many years; he also served on the West Hoosick Cemetery Association Board of Directors. He was a Charter Member of Rensselaer County Farm Bureau and also served on their Board of Directors.

Survivors other than his wife Dottie include their children Irving Cross, Virginia Ruble (Michael), Ronald Colvin (Julie), Craig Colvin (Pollyanna) and Kimberlee Colvin, his sisters Gertrude Carpenter and Eleanor Dreskin. He is also survived by ten grandchildren, ten great grandchildren, several nieces and nephews. Milton was predeceased by a grandson Stephen Colvin.

A Celebration of Milton's Life, will be held on Saturday, April 17, 2021, at 3:00 pm, from the West Hoosick Baptist Church, on the Buskirk West Hoosick Road (County Rt 103). Burial will follow the service at the West Hoosick Cemetery.

Relatives and friends may call at the church on Saturday from 2:00 pm, until the start of the service. Arrangements are under the care of the Mahar Funeral Home, 43 Main Street in Hoosick Falls, NY. Memorial contributions may be made to either the Stephen Colvin Memorial Fund or the West Hoosick Baptist Church through the funeral home.

Sending love and kind wishes to the whole family from overseas. Milt was a kind soul who was always helpful and hard working. An integral part of the rural community. He was especially supportive when I became interested in evaluating milking machines as part of mastitis prevention and control and we had many conversations about this. We even shared a flow meter for a while. He also cooked a mean barbecue at the many dinners we shared with Milt and Dottie. A true country legend has left this earth. He will be missed fondly.
