A Celebration of the life of Phil McMillan, 71, of Lexington will be scheduled at a future date when we can share hugs and stories and remember his life. Services will be under the direction of the Wilson-Little Funeral Home in Purcell.
Mr. McMillan passed away Saturday, December 26, 2020.
Phillip Charles McMillan was born November 15, 1949 in Oklahoma City, the third of four children born to Foster Elmer McMillan and Flora Dee (Townley) McMillan. He was raised in Oklahoma City and attended school there, graduating from Capitol Hill High School in 1968.
Phil worked for Wilson Foods for several years before the company closed its doors. His heart had always been to live on the farm, and so he followed his dream. By 1980, Phil had settled in Lexington. In 1994 he began working for William Hightower.
Later that year he met Tina Brown Harp. They started dating and eventually married on his birthday in 1999. He loved life on the farm, building fence, caring for his livestock, and tending to his garden. He was a man’s man; an avid outdoorsman and he loved fishing and hunting. Phil and Tina made their home on an acreage near Lexington and have called it home ever since.
Phil was a loving husband; a proud father and the best grandpa a kid could ever want. He was outgoing and his circle of friends was large. He will be dearly missed!
He was preceded in death by his son, Kevin McMillan; parents, Foster and Flora McMillan; sister, Myrna McMillan and brother, Robert McMillan.
Phil is survived by his wife, Tina of the home; son, Brent McMillan of Lexington; daughter, Jamie Anderson and husband, Kregg, of Purcell; sister, Gayla Whitten and husband, David, of Edmond; four grandchildren, Kaden and Cruz McMillan and Kelly and Kendra Anderson; several nieces and nephews and a host of other family and friends.
