Jimmy Wayne McMillon

Jimmy Wayne McMillon, 75, passed away on 10-16-2019 in Houston, TX. He was born on April 11, 1944 in Slaton, TX to William James McMillon & Ethyl Nadine McMillon. Jimmy is survived by his: wife, Barbara Ann McMillon; daughters, Lisa Michelle McMillon; sons, Steven Wayne McMillon & James Robert McMillon; sisters, Peggy Huckabee, Sharon Elaine McMillon; brothers, Billy Roy, Don Allen, Ronald Wade , & Curtis Glen; grandchildren, Joseph Ryan Millar, Katherine Elizabeth Millar, Haden Blake Landis, Shane Evan Landis, Nathan James McMillon, Glenn Conley McMillon, Marandah Celless Perkins, Yeraldi Victoria Carbanero McMillon, Penelope Lola Carbanero McMillon, Nicole Agustina Carbanero McMillon; and numerous family members and friends.
He was preceded in death by: Father W.J. McMillon; mother Nadine McMillon; sisters Linda Ann Daniel & Mary Jean Kubacak.
Jimmy ordered his life around his priorities: faith, family, and being a provider. He was a devoted husband, father and grandparent. The sparks that flew in 1962 when a candy girl named Barbara caught his eye at the Lubbock TG&Y and ignited a fire that sustained a fifty-five year marriage. Jimmy was a strong Christian who lived his faith in everyday life. Patient, humble and above all kind, he was an understanding father and mentor who exuded a quiet strength. He was an outstanding role model to his children, who desperately wanted to meet his expectations, not because they feared that he would yell at or spank them, but because they did not want to disappoint him.
Jimmy worked hard all of his life. By the time he was hired for his first “real job” at the age of fourteen, he already had toiled for years in the hot, dusty cotton fields of West Texas. Once he got a taste of working in the cooler, cleaner climate of retail, he never looked back, forging a very successful career as a store manager. In retirement, Jimmy kept right on working, running an always-busy dog sitting business. He loved the dogs who would come to stay with him almost as much as he loved his own dogs, Sam and Suzanna. Jimmy’s retirement didn’t go completely to the dogs though, he also found time to hone his impressive woodworking skills, beautify his yard, listen to classic country music, and watch the Dallas Cowboys, his lifelong favorite team.
Jimmy’s family will receive guests on Tuesday October 22, 2019 at Nassau Bay Baptist Church 18131 Nassau Bay Drive. Nassau Bay, TX 7708 from 10:00 am to 11:00 am followed by a Funeral Service at 11:00 am. Interment will be at Confederate Cemetery, Alvin, TX.

  4. I am stunned and deeply saddened to hear about Jim’s passing. I became acquainted with Jim over the past 5-6 years as a care giver for my dog, Milo. Much more than a care giver for Milo, I considered Jim a friend, even though I was only on the periphery of his life. He was such a kind and patient man with a great appreciation for life. His joy and respect for life was even evident in the way he treated the dogs that he cared so much about. He must have been an amazing husband, father and grandfather! Jim, you will be greatly missed! My sincerest condolences to Barbara and the rest of his family. You will all be in my prayers.
