A longtime resident of Medfield, MA, Brad passed away on August 14th with his close family by his side.

Brad came to Medfield in 1977. He was an active member of the community especially as both his children grew-up in Medfield. Brad managed and operated Millis Pharmacy for nearly 20 years. Brad would later sell the pharmacy and work for various healthcare organizations as a pharmacist, passionately helping people in medical need.

Brad enjoyed working on his yard, doing his local errands in Medfield to the bank & post office and enjoyed trips to Cape Cod especially for the restaurants’ “early bird” specials. He also took pride in his family’s Pilgrim heritage and for many years hosted Thanksgiving dinner when he cooked turkey and all the fixings for the entire family. During his retirement years, Brad would also continue to be active in the community volunteering and working at both the Medfield and Millis Senior Centers. He loved travelling especially to Cary, North Carolina and Taipei, Taiwan to visit his grandchildren.

His bright smile, chatty conversations with all and being at the family gatherings with his brothers-in-law & sisters-in-law and nieces & nephews were what Brad lived for all the time. Family was always most important to Brad and being with his wife and children and 3 grandchildren filled him each day with joy and happiness.

Brad is predeceased by his father Harold McMillan, mother Maude McMillan, and sisters Janet Nicolson and Nancy Hagadorn. Brad leaves behind his beloved wife Carolyn Woo McMillan, son Jon McMillan (Chiungwen), and daughter Meredith McMillan Uchida (Kohei). He was the proud grandfather of Lina and Mio Uchida and Ben McMillan.

Mr. McMillan was such a great and friendly man. He was always smiling and engaged in great conversation. His legacy is a great one as he leaves this world a better place. His kindness and genuine demeanor set an excellent example and will continue to proliferate through Jon and Meredith and all of those who were lucky enough to know him.

His love and spirit will always be with us to help guide us through difficult times, just like this one now.

Mrs. McMillan, I’m not sure of the image you picture when you think of him, but the image I conjure in my mind is of Mr. McMillan at Jon’s wedding, walking around in the floppy hat enjoying the entire day.

Please reach out if you need anything at all.

One of my fondest memories of Brad...He would come to the bank where I worked on a regular basis. Always keeping me in the loop of our current events in the world. He was a great guy. We will miss him.
My sincere sympathies to the McMillan Family.

We depended on Brad on Tuesdays in the Medfield Center kitchen. As a volunteer, Brad could always be depended upon to pick up any routes that were uncovered in addition to his own. He knew all the clients and all the routes. He always had a cheerful hello for all. He will be greatly missed.

Mrs. McMillian, Meredith, and Jon, I am so very sorry for your loss. I have so many fond memories of growing up with Meredith and your family. I remember making donuts at your house and your dad always seemed excited about those! I also think he was the one who showed me that adding chips to your sandwich made it taste infinitely better... something I’ve passed along to my kids, as well. Running in with him while he open opened up the pharmacy before camp in the summer mornings. He was such a wonderful person and has definitely made a lasting impression on me. My heart and my thoughts are with you all.
