A Strong believer in 4H, he participated in his younger years and still supported in his later years.
Millen loved all types of livestock, especially cattle. As well he was an accomplished trainer and handler of retrievers. He was asked to judge the National Retriever championship.
Millen took great pride in watching his grandkids and great grandkids in their sports, 4H beef clubs and cattle shows. Having many years of experience with cattle, Millen passed along many tips of the trade to his grandkids and great grandkids. Millen’s greatest pride was his family
