Robert William McMillan

October 7, 2004 - December 2, 2020

It is with deep sorrow that we mourn the sudden passing of Robert William McMillan at the age of 16.

Left to cherish Robert's memory are his parents Andy McMillan (Jenn) and Donna Gillespie (Cory); siblings Brenden, Kendra and many step siblings; grandparents Bob & Hilda McMillan, Dale Kozak, Rose Donais(Terry). Great grandma Caroline Kozak and special friend Ashlee Verhaeghe.

Robert was a kind, generous and respectful young man with a huge heart. He made many people smile and laugh and enjoyed entertaining them. Robert had a great sense of humor. There was never a dull moment with Robert around. He was a chameleon; he could fit in anywhere, no matter whether he knew the people for 5 minutes or for 5 years.

Robert enjoyed spending time on the family farm. He would play with the animals, help in the garden and cut wood. You never had to ask him twice. He was always willing to lend a hand. He enjoyed going for a drive just to listen to music. Music was a big part of Robert's life. He would listen to many different genres (with the exclusion of country). Music was always on his mind. It was his dream to produce his own music.

Robert really enjoyed movies. Robert could recite bits and pieces from movies that he had watched when he was a child. Robert enjoyed hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, steam engine shows, skateboarding, biking, basketball, baseball and video games. He made numerous friends through each and every activity he took part in.

Robert will be greatly missed by all his family and many friends. As he would say, "Don't worry about a thing. Everything's gonna be alright."--Bob Marley
