Journal entry by Nicole Mills

Douglas T. Mills (Doug) of Lakewood, IL formally of Roscoe, IL died May 26th, 2018. Born June 14th, 1962 to Kathleen and Donald Mills. Married Laura Ahnen Mills in 1988.
Doug was a wonderful man, kind hearted, genuine, faithful, and the life of the party. He wore his many hats proud. A man of God, a business man, friend, son, brother, husband, uncle, cousin, father (to many) and newly a grandfather. He provided for his family by working in the construction industry and later as the business owner of Five Star Concrete Contracting Inc. Besides his family, Doug loved the outdoors. Biking, golfing and swimming were a few of his favorites along side of traveling with family and friends.
He will be forever missed by his loving wife of thirty years Laura (Ahnen) Mills. Children- Nicole (Ryan), Bradley (Kayla), Mitchell and grandson Lincoln. Doug also has a sister Deborah (Mills) Russell along with many brothers-in-law, sisters-in-Laws, nieces and nephews that he loved as well.
A celebration of Doug’s life will be held on June 16th, from 4pm-8pm at Crystal Lake Country Club, 721 Country Club Rd, Crystal Lake, IL 60014. It is an open invitation to all those who were lucky enough to have Doug touch their lives in one way or another!
