The Santa Clara Power Squadron, with great sadness, reports the passing of Milt Entwistle. Milt passed away on Feb. 1, 2018, just a few months after celebrating his 100th birthday in September as well as recently receiving a n award for 50 years of service from United States Power Squadrons. Milt was a very long time member of our squadron and back in 2004 was the driving force behind the beginning of the Monterey Power Squadron. Even after forming the Monterey squadron, Milt would occasionally attend our holiday party or even some of our other events. When the Monterey Power Squadron fell on bad times and was forced to cease, Milt quickly returned to the Santa Clara Power Squadron and offered to help wherever he could.
As the commander of Santa Clara Power Squadron, I recently had the opportunity to present him with the 50 Years of Service Award, and let me tell you he was extremely proud of getting it. Milt was a knowledgeable person in a lot of areas and didn’t hesitate to share his wisdom. He will truly be missed. –Lindy Zink
