Herbert F. Midelton, born on July 4, 1926, passed away on April 10, 2020 at the age of 93. He was born in Philadelphia where he lived until the age of 18, when he enlisted in the Army during World War II. Before he left, he eloped with the love of his life, Mildred Older, who was 16 at the time. They were married for almost 75 years until Mildred passed away in June of last year. They were inseparable.

During World War II, Herb was a rifleman and served as a scout for 16 months as a part of the 87th Infantry Division. He was in the famous Battle of the Bulge. Herb was awarded the Combat Infantry Badge and two Battle Stars.

When Herb came out of World War II in 1946, he and Mildred raised their family in Ventnor for most of their family life and later lived in Absecon, NJ and Florida. They had three sons – David, Stanley, and Alan.
As the years went on, with his wife working beside him, he became a custom home builder in Ventnor, Margate and Longport for 33 years. He dedicated himself to work and his family and became very successful. As his family grew, he looked forward to spending time with his grandchildren, including weekly Friday night sleepovers.
His dedication went far beyond his family. Alan tragically passed away at the age of 3. In his memory, Herb and Mildred set up the Alan H. Midelton Scholarship Foundation in 2010, currently the largest scholarship for college-bound Atlantic City High School graduates, based on academic excellence and financial need.

In addition to Alan and his loving wife Mildred, Herb was preceded in death by his parents, David and Rose Midelton; brothers Stanley and Martin. He is survived by sons David (Diane) and Stanley; grandchildren Gary (Marta), Andrea (Andrew) Kalan, Robert (Lauren), Abbey (David) Gancz, and Eric; and 9 great-grandchildren. He will be dearly missed by all.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in his memory to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America at
