Dick was born on May 14, 1927, to parents Richard MacMillan and Louise MacMillan (Braun) in Philadelphia, PA.

Dick loved learning, graduating from high school with a bachelor’s degree, then enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1945, during WWII, and later graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Chemistry.

He was a member of the Board of Directors on the Maricopa County Medical Society and served as President of the Arizona Heart Association.

Recreation for Dick was traveling with his wife and family, playing golf, and furthering his knowledge of medicine, reading medical journals. He loved to dress as Santa Claus every Christmas and deliver gifts to family. Dick loved his “lovely wife” Millie of 65 years with all his heart. Dick attended Camelback Bible Church and had genuine faith in God, trusting Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.

Dear Millie,

We were so sad to learn of Dick’s passing. He was one of the first doctors I met after moving to Phoenix in 1970. He was my internist from then until he retired. He was a good friend of my mentor from Cleveland, Rollie Moskowitz. I think they both went to Temple U at about the same time. Our sincere condolences to you and your family.

Karen, Mike (Cous), and family,

We join you in celebrating the very full and accomplished life of your Dad. You have much to be proud of and remember with smiles and warm feelings. Losing a parent is not easy, but knowing he’s lived a great life, and now has the gift of eternal life, should reassure you. He’s in very good hands now. I hope the gathering of family, close friends, and loved ones helps you through this transitional time of mourning, reflection and positive thoughts as you move forward. May blessings of peace and comfort surround you all.

Mrs. MacMillan,
I don’t know if you remember me but I lived across the street from you when you lived on Highland in Phoenix. I played with Rick when we were kids. Your family was so nice and I have many fond memories of Dr. MacMillan and all of you. I send you my thoughts and prayers. Blessings to you and your family.
