Former Mission President, Marriott Exec, Milton Barlow

WASHINGTON, DC -- Former Rochester, New York mission president and long-time Washington DC area LDS Church member Milton A. Barlow died Friday, April 6th of congestive heart failure at his home in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Barlow, chairman of Barlow Corp., and former Marriott Corp. executive, was 89.

Barlow joined Marriott-owned Hot Shppes in 1941 as vice president and treasurer, rising toe executive vice president in 1956. At that time, J. Willard Marriott, president and chairman of Marriott, said he expected Barlow to act as the company's "senior executive officer." While at Marriott, the company's sales grew from $4 million to $80 million and it constructed the Twin Bridges and Key Bridge Marriott hotels, some of the company's earliest. After leaving the company, he continued to serve on the Marriott board.

But in 1964, Barlow left Marriott to establish Barlow Corp., a real estate development and management firm. Barlow Corp., develped the 19-story Barlow Building in Bethesda, Maryland and was involved in the development of office complexes and large, upscale retail stores as well as residences.

Barlow was also active in the Church in Chevy Chase, serving as bishop of the Chevy Chase ward and working with the Boy Scouts. In 1975, he was called to serve as mission president of the LDS Church's New York Rochester Mission, returning to the Washington DC area in 1978. He also served as a temple worker in the Washington DC Temple.

While he lived in the Washington DC area, Barlow was also active in the community, serving as president of the board of the Washington Hospital Center and of the Washington chapter of the American Red Cross. In addition, he was active in the Boy Scouts, serving on the Washington executive council.

A native of Utah, Barlow served an LDS mission to Germany and Austria from 1930 to 1933. He graduated from George Washington University in 1937 and from Harvard's graduate school of business administration. He married the former Gloria Gregerson in 1942, she died in 1992.
