Millard married Charlotte on September 28th, 1985; they were married 35 years.

At the age of 15 Millard started cleaning construction sites and steadily worked his way up to superintendent. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved to hunt and fish, as well as just looking at wildlife. Millard was almost as good at talking trash as he was at shooting trap and skeet. He was also actively involved in church and was always looking for ways to help those around him.

God saw he was getting tired, And a cure was not to be, So he put his arms around him, And whispered "Come with me", With tearful eyes we watched him suffer, And saw him fade away, Although we love him dearly, We could not make him stay, A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands to rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best, Although his heart stopped beating, His love will always remain, His absence puts upon our hearts, A very heavy strain, For now he is in a place of everlasting rest, We just have to understand that God, He only takes the best. You will be missed Millard! Charlotte and family - you are in our thoughts and prayers. We love you!
