Milo was born January

19, 1953 in Minot, ND to

Vernon and Arlene (Clark)

Register. He grew up near

Minot and attended Minot

High School. He gra-

duated in 1972.

Milo moved to Mesa,

AZ in 1988. He worked in

construction at the Out of

Africa Wildlife Park in

Fountain Hills, AZ. Milo

constructed enclosures for

the ‘big cats’ along with

other construction needs

for the park. He stayed

connected to the park

through a donation pro-

gram to feed the animals

discarded meat from

markets and butchers in

the area. Milo assisted in

the reconstruction effort

following hurricane Katri-

na and returned to Minot

in July 2009.

Milo did things ‘big’

and his was always ‘all

in.’ He enjoyed the out-

doors, chased walleyes

but settled for any catch

on his line. He was happy

to have spent his last days

of his life cooking for

friends. Milo had the most

blue and kind eyes many

had ever seen. He had a

love of horses and always

seemed to have a dog by

his side. He will be

missed by all who shared

in his life.

Milo is survived by his

daughter Virginia (Alex)

Mardikian, Minot;

grandchildren Chryxaun-

na, Lane, Chyna and Mor-

gan; sisters Verla (Wes)

Dockter, Payson, AZ and

RaeDene (David) Turner,

Chugiak, AK;

Milo was preceded in

death by his parents.

A memorial service is

planned for August 19,

2020 from 6:00 – 8:00

p.m. at Roosevelt Park,
