James Joseph Mills

On April 8, 2019, the world lost a true gem of a man. James Joseph Mills was a beloved son, a caring brother, a loyal friend, a doting and loving husband, and a dedicated father of 3. Though taken from us too soon, for 56 years Jim shared his light and love with anyone who had the joy of coming into his life. 

Jim is survived by his wife, Michelle Hirsch Mills, daughters  Madeleine, Abigail, and Isabelle, father James Niland Mills (Sheila), siblings Robert Mills (Nikki), Jennifer Boyer (G.P.), Kathleen Lovett (Brian), Meredith Arns (K.C.) and Jeremy Moss, Lindsay Blase (Chris) and Nicola Moss, sister and brother-in-law Maya Shmoel (Avi) and Joe Hirsch (Joanne) and many nieces and nephews. Jim is predeceased by his mother, Patricia Louise Mills.

Jim's amazing qualities were amplified in his family life. He made every one of his family and friends feel as if they were the most special person in the world.
