August 18, 1934 ~ August 6, 2020
Former Puebloan James Arthur “Jim” McMillen, 85, passed away on Thursday, August 6, 2020 in Wentzville, MO. Jim was preceded in death by his loving wife, Eulalea I (Harvey) McMillen, his parents, Beulah E (Sutton) McMillen and William Isaac McMillen, by his brother, William B McMillen, and by his sister, Lily E McMillen. He will be sadly missed by his children, Katherine (Chuck) Allen, Kristine (Michael) Fields, Karen Smith and Michael McMillen; by his grandchildren, great-grandchildren; his sisters and brothrs-in-law, by his many cousins, nieces, nephews; and friends.
Jim graduated from Central High School, in 1952 and from Southern Colorado State College. He is retired from the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad and as a real estate agent with ReMax and Central Realty. He was a proud Eagle Scout, a member of Faith United Methodist Church, St. Charles, MO, a 50+ year member of The United Transportation Union (past treasurer local 204) the fraternal orders of Elks, Lions, Jaycees, and Eagles, a beloved and respected husband, father, brother, and friend. He will be greatly missed for the love he showed, for his quirky humor and good advice, for his conversation, and his insight.
He was an avid amateur historian, loved to read good crime novels, and shared his love of the great outdoors and National Parks with his family. Although we are very sad to lose this great man, we rejoice that he will once again be with his lovely wife. A socially distanced graveside service and visitation will commence at Mountain View cemetery on Saturday, August 22, 2020 at 2:00 PM.
