HANOVER Robert B. Millheim, Jr., 60, passed away at his sister's home, surrounded by his family and friends on Tuesday, July 1, 2014, following a long battle with cancer. Born on Wednesday, January 27, 1954, in Hanover, he was the son of Velma Flickinger Millheim of Hanover and the late Robert B. Millheim, Sr. He was also preceded in death by his daughter, Jasmine Sky Myers. A 1972 graduate of Littletown High School, he was a veteran of the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War and later served in the Maryland Air National Guard. He spent his career in masonry and was employed by several contractors in the Hanover and Baltimore, Md. areas prior to his illness.

He served as an Officer of Post #14 for many years, was elected to their highest office, Post Commander, in 2009 and 2013, and held the office of the Vice President of the Legion Riders. In addition, he served as the 2010 President of the Hanover Allied Veterans Council. He was a passionate Pittsburgh Steelers fan as well as an avid Harley rider, who rode with many groups around the area. In addition to his mother, he is survived by his daughter, Bobbi J. Millheim of York; a sister, Karen L. Millheim of Hanover; a brother, Lonnie E. Millheim and his wife, Melinda of McSherrystown and their children, Mark, Amanda and Eric; "honorary" children, Brooke Myers and Justin Slusser; and many good friends, especially those who were like a second family at Post #14.
