Milton was a 1957 graduate of Douglas High School. He attended UNL for one year to study music and was in a singing group. He married Doris Bogema in 1960 and was blessed with three children.

Before beginning his career as a dairy farmer in the mid-60s, he had several jobs including owning and operating a backhoe. In 2000, he started Boldt Farms Inc. along with his two sons. Milton also owned a bulldozer which he loved to operate on the farm.

Milton had a passion for music and loved singing with his brothers and sister. He was at his happiest singing with his quartet, the Melody Men, a group that formed when he was a teenager. He was a long-time member of the Douglas United Methodist Church, where he sang in the choir, served on the church board and taught Sunday school.
