Mr. Mills was my Accounting teacher at Texarkana College. He was an excellent instructor & a great mentor to me as I pursued my Associate Degree in Business Administration & we became good friends. I have fond memories of working as his assistant in grading his students' papers. I am saddened to hear of his passing. May he rest in eternal love & peace.

Mr. Mills was not only my accounting professor at Texarkana Community College in the mid 80s, he was also a very close friend of both my Uncles. Just recently I had to use accounting methods in my job and things that were taught to me by Mr. Mills came back to me just as if he had taught me the day before. Deepest sympathy to Mr. Broglin and his family.

I have known Robert for over 50 plus years. He was a very good man and was always helpful to others. I remember when the National Guard unit was called up to Active Duty at Ft. Polk , La. During that time period many Guard members were trying to raise their Test scores to gain important school opportunities to advance in rank. Robert being a professor of accounting and math gave up his fee time to Tudor many soldiers in math , I don’t think he was ever recognized for his efforts, he should have been !
May he Rest In Peace .
