Kenneth F. McMillan

Kenneth F. McMillan, 63, of Lebanon, passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 3, 2011, at his residence, while holding the hand of the love of his life, his angel, Diana “Mo” Harder.

Ken was born on Sept. 24, 1947, in Gainesville, Fla., to the now deceased Walter S. and Madeline (Stroude) McMillan. He graduated from Robert E. Lee High School.

He proudly served his country in the United States Army during Viet Nam. He served with the 2nd Division Howitzer Battalion 17th Artillery. He was stationed in Viet Nam from January 1967 until June of 1967, when he received a Purple Heart.

Ken lived in Bloomington for several years before moving to Lebanon. He worked for T.L.C. and A.S.C. in Lebanon.

He loved the beach and Florida Gators football.

Survivors include his sons, Sean and Matt (Henni) McMillan, of Florida; his fiancé, Diana “Mo” Harder of Lebanon; children, Butch (Crystal) Osborne and Troy Osborne of Lebanon, and Michele (Luke) McQueen of Whitestown. Also surviving are his grandchildren, whom he loved and who brought him great joy, Drew, Abby, Emma-Rae and Major Osborne of Lebanon, Kyra Osborne of Lizton and Ava and Ian McQueen of Whitestown; and his adopted great-granddaughter and neighbor, Holly Orender. Most recently he enjoyed spending time with his “grumpy old buddy,” Mike Harder, who helped make it possible to keep Ken at home. He is also survived by his brother, Pat (Lydia) McMillan of Salem, Ore.; and sisters, Wanda Easterling and Carol (Bob) Goodrich, of Georgia, and Margaret Liddell of Alabama.

Ken was preceded in death by his brothers, “Mac” McMillan and “Bub” McMillan, and brother-in-law, Charlie Easterling.
