Kent Michael McMillan was born on July 8, 1958 and passed away on October 16th, 2023, in Prospect , VA. He was predeceased by his parents, William L. McMillan and Pallie Berry McMillan. Kent is survived by his devoted wife, Claudia Garris McMillan, his brother, Lee McMillan, his loving daughter, Sarah McMillan King, son-in-law, Andrew King, and his two adoring grandsons, Sullivan Ryan King and Brooks Monroe King.
He also leaves his dear friend, Tom Wilson, who was his constant companion and help-mate on the farm, as well as Kimberly Lozano, who assisted him at the Car Coop for over twenty years.
He was an avid outdoorsman, with a love of hunting and fishing and was happiest on his tractor at the farm. Anyone who was invited to one of his hunts knew they were special to him. Kent was not only a beloved husband, brother, father, and grandfather, but also a dear friend to many.
Kent had a special bond with his loyal companion, Pepper, his faithful dog, and his beautiful calico cat, Susie who brought him immense joy and comfort. He was also known for taking in and feeding or finding homes for a host of cats at his business, Krazy Kenny’s Car Coop. He was in the car business for over forty years and was a successful salesman. He and Claudia attended Farmville United Methodist as well as Antioch United Methodist Church, where they have a host of friends and loved ones. Kent’s kindness, wisdom, and warm-hearted nature touched the lives of all who knew him. He will be deeply missed, but his legacy of love and compassion will continue to live on in the hearts of those he leaves behind.
The family invites friends and loved ones to join them in a celebration of Kent’s life on Monday, October 23, 2023 at 11:00 at Farmville United Methodist Church. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to be made to Antioch United Methodist Church in Cumberland, VA or Farmville Meals on Wheels in Kent’s name, as he always believed in helping others and making the world a better place. May his soul rest in eternal peace, and may his family find strength and solace in the memories they shared with him.
