Dude McMillan 1924-2007
A very dear friend of my family passed away this weekend. Dude McMillan was a part of my life since I was born in Fayette, MO. My father helped tend bar at the local watering hole in his college town of Fayette, working next to the owner, Dude. Since I attended CMU(CMC when I attended) for a while, McMillan’s was a big part of my life there too. Since my family lived so far away in Wyoming, I was always welcomed by Dude & his lovely wife Margie to spend time at their house. I completely felt at home & cared for while staying with them. He was a wonderful, generous man. He was also a veteran, one of the longest living survivors to have fought in the Battle of the Bulge. This post goes out to Dude, one of the nicest men anyone could ever meet. My thoughts are with the McMillan family.
