Milton Clowers

FAYETTEVILLE -- Milton L. Clowers left his mortal bond to be with the Lord Thursday, May 20, 2010.

Mr. Clowers was born April 27, 1950, in Chattanooga. He was a son to the late Thomas H. and Beatrice Clowers. He also was preceded in death by three brothers, Nathaniel Tellis, Oliver Tellis and Thomas H. Clowers Jr., and four sisters, Jaquetta Norris, Mittie Tellis, Viola Wynes and Gloria Ann Allen.

Milton lived a very fulfilling life and is survived by his wife, Lauretta "Randi" Clowers; his loving children, son Eric S. McCaskill (Amy); daughter, Cameron G. Clowers; four brothers, James Tellis (Glennie), Herman Tellis (Barbara), William W. Clowers and Robert Clowers; two sisters, Barbara J. Crowley and Mary L. Douglas; five grandchildren, Gracelyn, Reginald, Khalil, Tyler and Gabrielle; and a host of nieces and nephews

Mr. Clowers was a native of Chattanooga, where he attended public school and graduated from Howard in 1968. He continued his education at Tennessee State University in Nashville. At a young age his career focus shifted to the electrical industry. Upon his arrival in Atlanta, he became employed by Grove Park Electric for a short period of time, and immediately thereafter, applied for and was accepted into the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 613/National Electrical Contractors (NECA) Apprenticeship program. At that time, he was employed by Dixie Electric Co.

During his time at Dixie, he helped introduce Yukon Electric as a joint venture partner with Dixie Electric on projects for Delta Air Lines. After working for over a decade at Dixie, he also assisted Bill McLendon in the beginning of Michael Electric Company. Through a period of mergers and acquisitions, Milton Clowers made UpTime Electric the successful electrical contracting firm it is today.

In addition to his desire to build a successful electrical contracting firm, he donated time unselfishly to serve on the following boards and committees: Served as member of the Atlanta Electrical Contractors Association (AECA) Board of Directors as well as its secretary/treasurer, president, governor and chairman; served as a trustee of IBEW Local 613 & Contributing Employers Family Health Plan and Pension Fund as well as its chairman; served as chairman of the AECA Government Affairs Committee; served as a member of the AECA Labor Relations Committee; and served as a member of the Atlanta Electrical Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee.

Mr. Clowers was a loving and devoted husband, father, brother and friend. He was strong, multitalented and gave so much to many. One of his many passions was staying connected to his roots as an active leader of Howard H.S. class of 1968 alumnus.

Mr. Clowers gave freely and lived by the principles of truth and integrity. He was a no nonsense person, who was fair and compassionate. Over the years Mr. Clowers touched many lives in the community during his earthly existence he never knew the full magnitude of the lives he impacted.

Celebration of life services for Mr. Clowers will be at 1 p.m. Thursday, May 27, at New Macedonia Baptist Church, 7725 Highway 85, Riverdale, GA 30274-3921
