James L. (Jim) McMillon passed peacefully away at Methodist Hospital in San Antonio, Texas following a brief illness on June 9, 2017. The youngest of five children, Jim was born and raised in Anniston. He attended Auburn University where he was a member of the Kappa Alpha Fraternity and graduated in 1960 with a BS in Business Administration. After college, he spent several years in the United States Air Force (Airman First Class) and then went on to enjoy a long career in medical sales. Jim met his first wife, the late Emory B. McMillon, while attending college and they moved to San Antonio in the 1980's where they settled in his much-loved neighborhood of Hunter's Creek. Jim met his second wife, the late Frances Lance McMillon, through mutual friends and they shared nine happy years together travelling the world, playing golf and bridge, entertaining friends and family and enjoying each other's company. As an athlete in his early years, Jim had a passion for sports and played football, basketball, baseball and softball. He took great joy in sharing his vast knowledge of sports statistics with anyone who would listen. A day was not complete for him without the sports section of the San Antonio Express. He also had a great passion for hunting and fishing and shared many stories about the ones that got away. He was preceded in death by his parents, William C. and Mae P. McMillon; his siblings, Mary E. McMillon, Doris F. McMillon, Richard G. McMillon and Jack M. McMillon. Jim will be dearly missed by his stepchildren, Ken Lance (Anita), of Greensboro, N.C.; Edie Hacker (Lonnie), of Commerce City, Colo.; Judy Davison (Bill), of Houston, Texas and Jennifer Freeman (Jason), of Seattle, Wash.; eight step-grandchildren; three step-great-grandchildren and his nieces, Carolyn Cornell, Susan Miler and Debbie Limerick. He will also be missed by his many wonderful friends in San Antonio, especially his neighbors from Hunter's Creek, Alamo Heights United Methodist Church, his weekly Emmaus group and the residents of The Meadows. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Please continue to check Porter Loring's website for the date and time at http://porterloring.com. I'll be seeing you In all the old familiar places That his heart of mine embraces All day through I'll find you in the morning sun And when the night is new I'll be looking at the moon but I'll be seeing you. - Frank Sinatra
