My daddy was one of the finest men I knew. He had the best sense of humor and could tell the best stories. He and my Mom were married 60 years, September 7, 2017. He loved "his girls" more than anything. He was a veteran of the Army. My dad, Pete, was in sales for most of his life, and received numerous awards. He was born in Mobil, AL and called Richmond, VA his home; though he lived the last 13 years in Murfreesboro, TN.

I feel like we missed many things in his obituary so I wanted to write a few things here to share with others. Peter D Mills, Jr. was an awesome man, and he will be missed by all of us.
