HUDSON - Robert H. Millies, 86, of Pittsford, died Friday, March 4, 2016, at James A. Haley Veterans Hospital in Tampa, FL.

In addition to his wife of 50 years, Maureen, he is survived by a son, Robert J. Millies of Pittsford; two daughters, Julie Millies (and Dave Lucke) of Howell, MI, and Lynne Millies (and Mike Garner) of Hillsborough, NC; and seven grandchildren.
