Bob's family home was on Lighthouse Road, Bellefonte, Delaware. His father, Leslie V. S. Millar (U.S. Lighthouse Service), was keeper of the Marcus Hook Rear Range Light which adjoined their house. After graduation from Alexis I DuPont High School, Bob served in the United States Marine Corps. He then graduated from the University of Delaware with a degree in chemical engineering. Bob was a member of the engineering honor society Tau Beta Pi. Bob had an international career with Exxon, which began in 1952 with Esso at the Baltimore Refinery.

After retirement, Bob spent his summers at their home on the Jocko River in Arlee, Montana. He was a champion sailor, a naturalist, and a man of many passions. He was an avid ham radio operator, a volunteer with the Chatham Emergency Squad, and a member of the Chatham United Methodist Church.

He is survived by his loving wife, Carol Roberts Millar, and his six devoted children, Leslie (Max), Robin (MaryBeth), Chris (Donna), Paul, Anne (Tom), Megan (Damon), nine grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.
