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.
