The son of Isaac and Carrie (Phillips) McMillon, he was born on August 23, 1929 in Evensville, TN and moved to Battle Creek, MI in 1948. Dub was a gregarious man who found old and new friends everywhere he went. He’ll be remembered as a good man with a bright smile, warm heart, contagious laugh, and big sense of humor (he always had a new joke to tell and a funny story to share!). Dub proudly served his country during the Korean War as a Corporal with the United States Army and was a life member of the VFW Post 565. He was formerly employed by American Register, Eaton Corporation, and later retired from Sears & Roebuck in 1996 as a skilled mechanic.

Steward, sister; Frances (McMillon) Locke, and brother; Norman McMillon. He is survived by his daughter; Carrie (McMillon) Muchler and grandson; Matthew W. Muchler, both of N. Ft. Myers, FL, nieces; Pam McMillon, Dawn McMillon, Peggy McMillon, Cindy (Don) Plane, all of Battle Creek, Fran (John) Goudzwaard of AL, several other nieces and nephews, lifetime best friend; J.R. Walter of Battle Creek, and so many others who considered him a special friend. The family will receive friends from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., on Sunday, April 14, 2019 at the Richard A.
