January 28, 1937 ‒ February 06, 2016

Perrysville, Ohio
Formerly of Mansfield, Ohio

PERRYSVILLE: Milan Theodore “Milo” Senokozlieff peacefully passed away Saturday February 6, 2016. He was 79 years old.

Born January 28, 1937 in Mansfield, he was the son of Milan Theodore & Julianna (Pasheilich) Senokozlieff. Milo was a Mansfield Senior High graduate with the class of 1955 where he played football for the Tygers and earned a spot with the All-Ohio team. He received a football scholarship to Bowling Green State University and after college he proudly served his country by joining the US Army Reserves.

A beautiful young nurse named Lois Ann Pealer caught his eye and he proposed on Christmas Eve 1961. The pair married on April 14, 1962.

He worked as a tool & die programmer with General Motors for over 35 years and retired in 1992. He worked hard and he played hard. Milo never met a stranger. He was adventurous and in his spare time he enjoyed traveling, boating, golfing, eating great food, and sharing a good beer with friends. He raised horses, and was a true sports fan who especially loved watching OSU or the Browns play football. But above all else he adored his wife, kids, and grandkids and cherished the time they spent together.

Milo was a faithful member of Three Crosses a United Methodist Fellowship in Butler.

He is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Lois Senokozlieff of Perrysville; three daughters & sons-in-law: Andrea & Scott Englehart of Powell, Heidi & Phil Khalil of Medina, and Molly & John Dotson of Findlay; eleven grandchildren: Maria, Sophia, Sydney, Chloe, Joshua, Benjamin, Alexander, Jackson, Payson, Abanna, and Hannah; in addition to numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

In addition to his parents Julianna and Milan, Milo was preceded in death by an infant daughter, a brother Earl, a sister Rita Ann, and step-father Melvin Roberts.

A memorial service celebrating his life will be held 3 p.m. Thursday, February 11, 2016 in Three Crosses a United Methodist Fellowship in Butler (12 Cleveland St) with Pastor Brandon Keck, Pastor Keith McLaughlin, and Chaplain Irene Scaramazza officiating. The family will receive friends after the service from 5-7 p.m. also at the church and a private burial will be held at a later date in Mansfield Cemetery.

Contributions in his memory to the Alzheimer’s Association, or Three Crosses a United Methodist Fellowship, or Kindred at Home Hospice may be made at his services.

  • What a truly Magnificent Life Milo shared with us all! Like most of the men who’s family came from “The Old Country” he could bark pretty loudly to cover up that BIG Generous Warm and Loving Heart! He would always stop by the house for a drink with Pete at least once a month on his way home from work. He never failed to stop in and check on me when Pete and Gene were traveling…usually when I was in the shower! He and Lois ALWAYS opened their Beautiful home to us whenever and that ALWAYS included my friends! When Milo was around there was always lots of loud laughter and Great stories! He Gifted me with SO many Wonderful memories and lessons! I know he did the same for everyone he encountered! He Blessed the World with many Gifts of Love that Benefited all ! He made everyone around him better! That included family, team mates, GM and the entire car industry! Even those Toyoters he hated ! LOL ! A genuine Man with a genuine Smile with a genuine Love for everyone he met…again and again and again! His legacy, Love and Wonderful Out Loud Laughter is ours forever! Sending Big Hugz and much Love to you all ! Pam

  • My memories of Milo are numerous because I had to play opposite him for two years in practice, he was THE defensive man over the middle, his All Ohio honors came from his skill, speed and tenacity against all opponents. His reaction time and speed enabled him to hit an opposing center many times before the center could get the ball into the quarterback’s hands, during one of the resulting pileups from a fumble he caused, a referee trying to get players untangled got his hand bitten. Milo later admitted he did it because he thought it was somebody from the other team trying to get his fingers through his face mask to injure his eyes. My sincere condolences on your loss.

  • Dear Lois, Andrea, Heidi, Molly and families,

    Milo’s tribute video is a very loving rememberance of a wonderful man! I am so very sorry for your loss! Sending my heartfelt sympathy, thoughts and prayers during your time of grief and all the days that follow.

    Hugs and love, Carolyn Divelbiss Kerr

  • Milo (Juney, from Jr, ) didn’t answer to that name from the family as a youngster. That was his Dad’s name. He had such a presence in my life since we lived on the same street during the war and spent many hours at Grandma Pasheilich’s house where we slept in the same room. And, of course, since he was a year older he was generally in charge and I, most of the time, loved having someone looking out for me whether it was at school, at Lake Erie where we spent childhood vacations on the beach , or later on if I happened to appear at a bar where he was he had to check out my friends and make certain that I wasn’t drinking which I never did – THEN. I feel sad that since we have lived so far apart since high school that I did not see more of him and his lovely growing family. I hope he knew how much I have always loved and respected him. Lois has been a true gem always and my heart goes out to her and their family at this sad time.

  • We are sending our love and condolences to all of you. Praying for you, hold onto the happy memories, of which you have many!
