Milton Latoni passed away on July 5, 2021 in Sandy, Utah. He was born on October 11, 1930 to Alfonso and Virginia Latoni in San Juan, Puerto Rico. As a teenager, he moved to New York City where he lived and raised his family for more than 75 years. He married his beloved wife, Anna Sorrentino on September 10, 1955 and they were together for almost 65 years. Together they had five children.
Milton joined the Air Force after high school and served honorably during the Korean War, where he earned a good conduct medal. He received his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering after completing his military service and went on to work for over 20 years for the state of New York, where he inspected buildings. His job was more than a career as he enjoyed spending time with children at group homes, where they called him Mr. Milton. He served as the President of the Block Association on 62nd Street in Brooklyn, New York. Milton was an avid Yankee fan and played softball on his company team. He also loved nature and being in the great outdoors. The most important thing to Milton was his family as a dedicated husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.
He is survived by his five children, Steven (Cheryl) Latoni, Deborah (Stephen) Gamrat, Lisa (Andy Jorgensen) Latoni, Jessica (Michael Doble) Baez and Theresa (Joseph) Morgan, nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Milton is preceded in death by his loving wife, Anna.

I was so sorry to hear about the loss of your father--and your mother, so close together. What a year, what a year. This is a beautiful obituary, and Andy told me more about your dad: obviously a thoughtful and dedicated man, energetic until the end! Still, I am so sorry for your losses and hope that you're getting all the strength and support you need from all the loving family and friends you have around you.
Hope to see you next time you're in New York City.
