Dr. Milton J. Krainin passed away peacefully in his sleep at his home in Atlanta on Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2015, at 97.

He practiced internal medicine for almost 40 years in Atlanta. A veteran of the Army Signal Corps, he earned a Bronze Star for service in World War II, serving both in Europe and the Pacific.

He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Esther, and was happily married for almost 60 years. A child of the Depression, his practical self-reliance made him more than proficient at carpentry, electrical repair, plumbing, masonry, gardening and ham radio. He will be hugely missed by his children, Edith and Jeff Clark, Frank and Jean Krainin, Marian and Vaughn Bishop, and Martin and Jackie Krainin, as well as his grandchildren, Michael and Tracie Clark, Emily and Jake Kurtzer, Laura Clark, Ian Bishop, and Jonathan, Mitchell and Ashley Krainin, and his great-granddaughter, Skyler. He was a great source of wisdom, intelligence and strength to all who knew him.
