Kenneth Dell Mills

Kenneth Dell Mills, 86, passed away at 9:30 PM on August 1, 2015 of complications from Parkinson’s disease, heart disease, and stroke. Ken was born July 3, 1929 to Jack and Freda Mills in Hooker, Oklahoma. He is survived by his sister Phyllis, his wife Darlene, his three children, Jacky, Steve (and wife Cheryl), and Tim (and wife Jacquie), his step-children Becky and Ginger; his grandchildren Randy, Jeremy, Ryan, Genevieve, Melaina, Aaron, and his step-grandchildren Ryan, Kali, Lani, Maddie, Emma, Christian, Dallas, and Nick; and one great-grandchild, Ailey.
Ken had a long and proud career in the United States Army, retiring as a Sargent Major (E-9) in 1967. While serving in the Korean War he received the Bronze Star for valor and the Purple Heart, as well as other commendations.
In retirement Ken’s constant wish was to “visit” with family and loved ones. He loved long conversations about current events and family matters, and watching old western movies. He was a committed Christian who spend many hours studying scripture, participating in Bible studies, and Christian outreach as a Stephen’s Minister. His faith comforted him through the many physical trials he experienced later in life.
Ken touched many lives, and will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.
