Millard was my first Chief and gave me my start in law enforcement. Millard was willing to take some young kid under his wing who walked in his office one day with a passion for law enforcement and encourage that dream. Almost twenty five years later and still going strong! He gave many a new officer their start knowing they would move on eventually. I have many fond memories of working for him. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Only knowing”Sarge”for 5 yrs. always thought what a fantastic guy he is. Each time we played golf,it was always an entertaining day. My best memory, was the time we put an exploding ball which it hit. We had such a big laugh. Of course, he was serious about his golf game, so was mad the rest of the round. Only settled down when we sat later for beers. Going to miss him for sure. So sorry For you Pam and the family.

Millard was my first PSO Sgt at 5’s. He being pre-fire, it was exciting to see how he took to Law Enforcement - with vigor and a smile- and a long career at KDPS & RTPD. We are indebted to his camaraderie and service. JB

My words fall woefully short in expressing my deep sadness with my Uncle Millard’s passing. He was an important part of my childhood and early adult years. When my parents passed, we had a long and wonderful reminiscent conversation. That was such a blessing! My parents had a very special place in their heart for him (I did too); especially my mother, Wanda, who knew him since their teenage years. I know my Uncle Millard would have done anything in the world for me and I always felt he looked after me, even though we didn’t see each other often. I’m sure he’ll make his presence in heaven known! Right!?!? Pam, you married a wonderful man! Mary and Annie - what a blessing to have such a great dad! I am so sorry for your loss. May God’s abundant love provide comfort to you and your families. I’ll keep all of you in my prayers and always have my Uncle Millard in my heart. Hugs and love

I am so saddened by this news. I just ran into him about month ago. My deepest sympathies to Pam and his family. I use to have coffee with Millard when I was on the school board and we would discuss various Richland issues. One of my favorite memories of Millard is one morning I put a blow up bunny (it was around Easter) on the front grill of his police car, before I went in to the coffee shop for our usual morning chat. This particular morning, I happened to be taking our youngest son to school and had him with me so he helped me, and then joined Millard and I with some hot chocolate while we enjoyed our coffee. Millard drove around half a day before realizing he had a bunny on the front of his car. The next time I saw him, I heard this booming voice, (anyone that knew Millard knows what I am talking about).."Ryan, I'll get you for defacing police property....and contributing to the delinquency of a minor". Thank you for your service Millard. You were one of a kind.

Milly was a great boss. He had a wicked sense of humor. He was honest and didn't always agree with those in command. Rest in peace.

I met Millard when he was the " chief " of police in Richland. I played many rounds of golf with the chief and enjoyed his wit and gruff bravado. Once while riding in a golf cart with him he drove too close to a tree limb that swept through the cart and slapped my hat off my head, he looked at me with a big smile on his face and said " stupid". I grinned and said I know. I will always hold Millard's memory in my heart with that smile on his face.
