Obituary Condolences

Freddie Ray Millis, known to all as Fred, 58, St. Clair, departed this life Monday, Oct. 30, 2017, at his home, surrounded by the love of his family.

Fred was born April 23, 1959, in Bogalusa, La., the son of Charles Ray Millis and wife Bessie Jo, nee Sorensen. On Oct. 14, 1989, he was united in marriage to Hope Christine Northcutt, and three children came to bless this union.

Fred was a Christian, having been raised in the Baptist faith. Fred served his country in the U.S. Navy, entering Jan. 21, 1977, and receiving his honorable discharge July 28, 1978. He was a carpenter by trade, and for about 10 years was employed by Gratzer Brothers Construction in St. Clair. He also was a member of the International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers, Local 396 of St. Louis, having worked in the industry for about three years. His most recent job was working as a designer for handicapped ramps and steps for Heartland Independent Living Center in Owensville. He would also oversee the construction. Fred was proud to receive his associate degree in business in 2014. Fred was an outdoorsman at heart, and fishing and hunting, especially with his sons, were favorite pastimes. He was truly a family man at heart and was happiest when he was spending time with his wife and children. His grandchildren were his pride and joy.

Fred is survived by his wife, Hope Millis, St. Clair; his children, Chelsey Pogue and husband Eric, Mason Millis and Morgan Millis, all of St. Clair; his grandchildren, Lineah and Sawyer Pogue; his parents, Bessie Millis Carter, nee Sorensen, Varnado, La., and Charles Millis and wife Judy, Franklinton, La.; his parents-in-law, Bud and Frankie Northcutt, St. Clair; his sisters, Tena Creel, Angie, La., Charlene Ward, and Robin McGee and husband Darren, all of Franklinton, La.; aunts; uncles; nieces; nephews; great-nieces and -nephews; cousins; and many friends.

Fred was preceded in death by his stepfather, B.J. Carter.

A celebration of life will be held at 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, at the home of his parents-in-law in St. Clair.

Memorials may be made to the family.

The family entrusts the care of their loved one to Russell Colonial Funeral Home, St. Clair.
