Uncle Bob" was really a great guy and will surely be missed. I'm so sorry for your loss.
I'll always have the fond memories of things from Trick-or-treating visits to parties when I was little. I was always glad to see him as the ref for my soccer games and tournaments, he was the most fair ref on the fields!
My dad was always happy to see or talk about his good friend and I'm sure they are enjoying their time to catch up now that they are together again.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all as you go through this difficult time.

Coach Bob Mills was one of the few people on Earth who loved the game of baseball as much as I did. I would have gladly run through a brick wall for him. I'll never forget my favorite Coach Mills saying: "You play the way you practice". I hope I get to play third base again (or emergency catcher) for him in the afterlife.

Judy, Jake, Sarah and Katy...your Dad meant a great deal to me, especially in those younger, more formative years when we coached soccer and baseball together. More fun were the Christmas shopping trips that we would take...well maybe he wasn't too good for me now that I think of those trips...A wonderful person, great fun, terrific husband (thanks for letting him out to play Judy), great Dad (I know he loved you all very much)...he will be missed

I had the pleasure of Bob coaching my oldest son at Deep Run baseball. Bob was a great teacher/mentor for the youth he coached, not to mention his ability to inspire as reflected by the number of successful seasons he coached weather it was baseball or soccer. Bob will be missed by anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. Rest in peace your work is done.

My sincere condolences to the entire Mills family and friends. I worked and played golf (boy did he hate to lose) with Bob years ago. A very genuine individual with a lot of passion in everything he did. Through the years, I still reminisced back to those days. Great memories. Bob was a good man.

"I'm so sorry for the loss of a great man. He always had a smile on his face when I saw him, and I bet he still does now. My heart goes out to Mr. Mill's family and friends. I'm glad I knew him and got to see him often at Deep Run when we were all playing softball. I know he loved his family so much. I'll be thinking of all of you during this time, and I pray you are all surrounded with lots of love and support through people and wonderful memories."

I am saddened to hear of Bob's passing. My deepest sympathies and condolences to Judy and the rest of the family. Working with Bob for some many years was a pleasure. He brightened up, and livened up the day at work. I'll always remember him as our Santa Claus at the company Christmas Dinner Dances. He will be sorely missed.
