Dennis L. Mills
Sagle, Idaho
August 5, 1944-December 29, 2015

Dennis L. Mills of Sagle, Idaho, was born in Prior, Oklahoma, on August 5, 1944, the third child to parents Dilford and Amy Mills. He died December 29, 2015, in Hayden, Idaho, at the age of 71 years, after a long battle with cancer.

The Mills family arrived in Hermiston in 1947, and worked the Hermiston Dairy for a number of years, as well as a dairy of their own. Being tall for his age, Dennis started in roofing when he was only 16, and went on to spend most of his life in construction work, building homes anywhere from Hermiston and Pendleton, Oregon, to Reno, Nevada.

He loved outdoor activities, and continued to enjoy fishing throughout his life. Dennis grew to be deeply spiritual, and might best be remembered for his healing ministry.

Dennis is survived by his wife Cheryl of Sagle, Idaho; daughters Lesa (Robert) Dennis of Keizer, Oregon, and Lori Mills of Portland, Oregon; three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren; brothers Randy and Steve Mills of Hermiston, Oregon; and sister Sharon Mills of Nyssa, Oregon. Dennis was preceded in death by his parents, nephew Justin, and brothers Jerry and Tom Mills.

At his wishes, there will be no memorial services. Contributions in his memory to Hospice of Northern Idaho, or any Hospice of your choosing, would be greatly appreciated by the family.
