Roger D. Mills was born in 1955 to Robert and Anna (Breitfield) Mills in Seymour, Indiana. He graduated from Seymour High School in 1973. He then went on to earn his associates degree in Electronic Engineering Technology at the ITT Technical Institute in 1975. He earned his Bachelor of Science and Business Administration in 1995 at South West University. He also earned his MBA in 2000 at Syracuse University.
Roger married Theresa Pagle in 1985 in Covington, LA. Roger and Theresa lived in several states while Roger pursued his career including New Orleans, LA, Syracuse, NY, Uxbridge, MA, Redmond, WA, and most recently in Woburn, MA, Seymour, IN, Brownstown, IN, and Abita Springs, LA. Roger retired from Hologic, Inc. in 2015 as a Senior Vice President and General Manager of Customer Service.
Roger had many interests and hobbies. He manufactured his own fireworks and loved to work in his yard. He could, literally, fix anything. Roger loved to spend time on his boat, at his lake house. He loved to travel, see new things, and spending time with his family and friends.
Roger was a member of the New England Thunderbirds and enjoyed showing his classic cars. Two of his favorites were a 2005 50th Anniversary Thunderbird and a 2006 Chevrolet SSR. Roger was an avid pilot and flew in his 28 Dakota Piper all over the country. He especially liked going on adventures with his brother, Norman.
Roger was a member of many clubs and service organizations including: Towanda Club, Woburn, MA, Seymour Elks Lodge, Seymour Moose and the Seymour Catholic Men's Club. He especially enjoyed working at the Seymour Oktoberfest for the Knights of Columbus.
Roger was flying from Indiana to Massachusetts on Sunday, October 31, 2021. His plane went down just off the coast of Massachusetts, near Cape Cod. The plane has been located but Roger's whereabouts are unknown, at this time. The reason the plane went down, is also unknown. It may have been due to a catastrophic plane failure or an unknown health issue.
Roger was an extraordinarily smart, talented, loving, funny, and fun-loving man. He will be so greatly missed by his loving wife, Theresa, his dear brother, Norman Mills, his much-loved Miniature Schnauzer, Rocky, Nieces and Nephews: Logan and Alysha Mills, Alisha (David) Gay, Ashley (Jeff) Blackwell. In addition to his family, Roger will be missed by many dear friends.
