Harold “Pete” Lee McMillan, 68, of 2497 US Hwy 158E, passed away peacefully at home on Friday, March 1, 2019, with his loving wife by his side. Born in Rockingham County, he was the son of the late John Alvis McMillan and Minnie Eller Rachel Barnes. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by five brothers, James McMillan, Luther McMillan, Russell McMillan, J.A. McMillan and Raymond Turpin; five sisters, Faye Cameron, Gail Long, Magalene Johnson, Lillie May McMillan and Carolyn Jordon.

Mr. McMillan was a US Army Veteran. He served in the Vietnam War as a Paratrooper and flew supplies. He retired from Duke Medical Center after 22 years of service due to stage 4 lung cancer. He did return to work though at Duke University Medical Center as a consultant. Due to his hard work and dedication, Duke named the building “McMillan Towers”, which “Pete” was very humbled and proud of. He loved playing Blue Grass music on his guitar. He was an avid hunter, bow hunting was his passion. He was one of the founders of the Guilford Bow Hunters Association (NC Bow Hunters Association).

Mr. McMillan is survived by his loving wife of nearly 50 years, Sarah Lee McMillan of the home; two sons, Anthony M. McMillan of Mebane and Jason C. McMillan of Milton; one half-sister, Mary Moorefield of King; three grandchildren, Demi McMillan, Zach McMillan, and Alexis McMillan.

Pam and I are so sorry for your loss. Pete was a great guy, I really enjoyed working with him at Duke. He always provided insight into what the problems were regarding the plumbing systems. I loved his stories.
