Paul McMillan “Pops”, 67, passed away unexpectedly on September 15, 2023.
He leaves behind his beloved wife, Rose (Provenzano) McMillan who was the love of his life as he was hers. They happily shared nineteen years together and took great pride in blending their children including sons Kevin McMillan (his wife Crystal McMillan); Bradley McMillan (his wife Jennifer McMillan); Curtis McMillan; Stepdaughters Katherine (Katie) DeSimone and Alyssa DeSimone (fiancé Christopher Spadaro). His pride and joy, grandsons Oliver Chase McMillan and Noah Carter McMillan. In addition, he is survived by his mother, Carol McMillan; sisters Janet Zwirko (husband Jan Zwirko) and Nancy Dooley (husband Paul Dooley); nephews Matthew Dooley and Andrew Dooley (fiancé Akanksha Das). and his special Godmother, Stella Burton. He was predeceased by his father, John McMillan.
Paul was raised in Mansfield, CT. He attended E.O. Smith High School and then went on to graduate from Keene State College in New Hampshire. It was at Keene State where he developed lifelong friendships, including his fraternity brothers, whom he stayed in contact with as much as possible. He had a passion for forestry and mapping and began his career at CL&P/Eversource where he worked for 36 years. His later years at Eversource brought him to the Distribution Center where he was a Distribution Coordinator.
He proudly and excitedly retired in 2019 and enjoyed every minute of it. His passion for the outdoors led him to boating, fishing, and meticulously caring for his lawn. He loved mowing so much he pursued a two day a week job at the Watertown Golf Club so that he could use the big mowers on the golf course and spend his mornings outside. His other favorite toy was his Old Town Sportsman paddle kayak. He was so happy spending time on the lake, any lake, any season and was sure to have all the accessories to successfully catch a fish. He proudly sent pictures to us all to prove he actually caught a fish.
He was so happy with life. His days, nights, and every opportunity, was spent with his boys sharing their love for Fantasy Baseball. They would discuss their teams and trades and enjoyed just talking in general. He loved spending summer vacations on Cape Cod with family year after year, spending time with family in the pool, family get togethers around the Holidays, anything that involved family. He was a kind soul and would do anything for anyone at any time.
He will be forever missed, and his memories will be treasured by all.
